CANCER JOURNALS AUDRE LORDE PDF

How am I going to do this now? She does do it, and her book radiates with rebellion, even four decades later. I do not have cancer, but I am a feminist and one diagnosed with an avalanche of overlapping autoimmune diseases. Sick writers, both male and female, have often reflected on how illness overwhelms their work. Does sickness, with its attendant infirmity, its gloomy shadow over the intellectual, represent feminist defeat? Her diagnosis comes months after an initial cancer scare and a lump that proves after a harrowing period of waiting and wondering to be benign.

Available for Pre-Order. This item will be available on October 13, Overview Moving between journal entry, memoir, and exposition, Audre Lorde fuses the personal and political as she reflects on her experience coping with breast cancer and a radical mastectomy.

A Penguin Classic First published over forty years ago, The Cancer Journals is a startling, powerful account of Audre Lorde's experience with breast cancer and mastectomy. Long before narratives explored the silences around illness and women's pain, Lorde questioned the rules of conformity for women's body images and supported the need to confront physical loss not hidden by prosthesis.

Living as a "black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet," Lorde heals and re-envisions herself on her own terms and offers her voice, grief, resistance, and courage to those dealing with their own diagnosis. Poetic and profoundly feminist, Lorde's testament gives visibility and strength to women with cancer to define themselves, and to transform their silence into language and action.
