Chosen Poems selects poems published by Lorde in the period from 1968-1982. As a selection, it is interesting. Undersong collects a thoroughgoing revision of Lorde's earky poems along with several later poems. Lorde's powerful words and direct expression touch my heart. Reading the transition of 20 years in her work gave me a very concrete sense of what I liked so much about her early work and why I was less interested by the time that her (then) new poems were starting to come out. This selection provides a good picture of Lorde evolving her sense of poetry and its mission.
She was also nominated for the National Book Award for poetry in 1974 for her third volume of verse, "From a Land Where Other People Live"(1973).
She was a professor of English at Hunter College from 1980 until her untimely death from cancer in 1992. Although many of Lorde's poems are about love, many are about anger, particularly anger about racism, sexism, and homophobia in America. She was also nominated for the National Book Award for poetry in 1974 for her third volume of verse, "From a Land Where Other People Live"(1973).
