ZUSAMMENFASSUNG
Presenting the essential writings of black lesbian poet and feminist writer Audre Lorde, Sister Outsider celebrates an influential voice in twentieth-century literature. "[Lorde's] works will be important to those truly interested in growing up sensitive, intelligent, and aware."-The New York Times In this charged collection of fifteen essays and speeches, Lorde takes on sexism, racism, ageism, homophobia, and class, and propounds social difference as a vehicle for action and change. Her prose is incisive, unflinching, and lyrical, reflecting struggle but ultimately offering messages of hope. This commemorative edition includes a new foreword by Lorde-scholar and poet Cheryl Clarke, who celebrates the ways in which Lorde's philosophies resonate more than twenty years after they were first published. These landmark writings are, in Lorde's own words, a call to "never close our eyes to the terror, to the chaos which is Black which is creative which is female which is dark which is rejected which is messy which is . . . "

Ein Buch, das lebensverändernd ist. Audre Lorde ist eine der unverzichtbarsten Denkerinnen, die ich bisher gelesen habe. Ihre sprachliche Eloquenz, ihre gedankliche Schärfe und Selbstständigkeit und ihr Einblick in die Komplexität des Menschseins sind sehr beeindruckend.
