EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The Black Unicorn is a collection of poems by a woman who, Adrienne Rich writes, "for the complexity of her vision, for her moral courage and the catalytic passion of her language, has already become, for many, an indispensable poet." Rich continues: "Refusing to be circumscribed by any simple identity, Audre Lorde writes as a Black woman, a mother, a daughter, a Lesbian, a feminist, a visionary; poems of elemental wildness and healing, nightmare and lucidity. Her rhythms and accents have the timelessness of a poetry which extends beyond white Western politics, beyond the anger and wisdom of Black America, beyond the North American earth, to Abomey and the Dahomeyan Amazons. These are poems nourished in an oral tradition, which also blaze and pulse on the page, beneath the reader's eye."

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Despite the warnings of his father, the great white Unicorn, Blackie ventures from his secure refuge in the heart of the forest into the restless, striving world of humans. His travels take him from the peaceful Shrine at the top of the world to the burning dragon pit at its bottom. Blackie meets monsters and beasts and humans of every rank from beggars, gypsies, peasants, and priests to knights, nobles, and his irrepressible, irresistible Princess. He learns the joys of love, friendship, and a well-baked bowl of cookies, as well as the miseries of sickness, treachery, and death. Ultimately, he learns what it means to be unicorn, a "holy beast" to the humans with his celebrated horn of violence in battle and healing in sickness.
