  • The Collected Poems of Audre Lorde


    Audre Lorde.


    New York: W.W. Norton & Company, 1997. Super octavo. Black and cream colored boards with gilt lettering along the spine. A previous owner transcribed a few of Lorde's poems on the end papers. Minor rubbing to the top edge of the back board. Unclipped jacket has mild edge wear and creasing. First edition. Very good.


    "The stars dwindle

    and will not reward me

    even in triumph.

    It is possible/ to shoot a man

     in self defense

    and still notice

    how his red blood

    decorates the snow."
