BOOK REVIEW: Your Silence Will Not Protect You by Audre Lorde 

November 15, 2017

Your Silence Will Not Protect You:

Essays and Poems Paperback 

by Audre Lorde 

Your Silence Will Not Protect You collects the essential essays and poems of Audre Lorde, including the classic The Master’s Tools Will Never Dismantle the Master’s House. A trailblazer in intersectional feminism, Lorde’s luminous writings have inspired a new generation of thinkers and writers.

Her lyrical and incisive prose takes on sexism, racism, homophobia, and class; reflecting struggle but ultimately offering messages of hope that remain ever-more trenchant today. Lorde was a Poet Laureate until her death; her poetry and prose together produced an aphoristic and incomparably quotable style, as evidenced by her constant presence on many Women’s Marches worldwide.

With a preface by Reni Eddo-Lodge, this beautiful edition honours the ways in which Lorde’s work resonates more than ever thirty years after they were first published.
