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).

Audre Lorde is a revolutionary Black feminist.

Dec 23, 2016 Julie Ehlers rated it it was amazing. Audre Lorde is a revolutionary Black feminist. Lorde's poetry was published very regularly during the 1960s - in Langston Hughes' 1962 New Negro Poets, USA; in several foreign anthologies; and in black literary magazines. During this time, she was politically active in civil rights, anti-war, and feminist movements.

The cover was slightly frayed, but not too badly. There were pieces of paper in the book (probably used as bookmarks). They werent bothersome, in fact i found them interesting. As far as the content, theres a lot of poems. I'm a big fan of Audre's book Zami and her essays and speeches. I feel the poems need to be read more than once to understand sometimes and require interpretation to appreciate. This is not for people who just want to read easy, rhyming poems.

"Undersong" collects Lord's early and later poems. She bravely revealed her feelings in her love poems. The power and the clarity spread out in this book, especially when she wrote about anger, family, politics, and sexuality. The images are unforgettable. This is a book you shouldn't miss.

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. Especially about love and anger, family, and sexuality, she wrote with truth and faith. The images and feelings are unforgettable. These poems let us think deeply. If you like poem, this is a book you sould not miss it.

I had not thought about Audre Lorde in years when I picked up this book. Chosen Poems selects poems published by Lorde in the period from 1968-1982.

As a selection, it is interesting. 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. It may be a little irritating to some that the order of the selection is not chronological.

Potential readers should note that this collection does not contain any of the work from either the Black Unicorn or the Cancer Journals-- both of which were published during the period represented by the book.
