This volume compiles a series of seminars, interviews, and conversations held by the author and collaborators across Berlin, Western Europe, and The Caribbean between 1984-1992. While Lorde stood at the intersection of various historical and literary movements in The United States--the uprising of black social life after the Harlem Renaissance, poetry of the AIDS epidemic, and the unfolding of the Civil Rights Movement--this selection of texts reveals Lorde as a catalyst for the first movement of Black Germans in West Berlin. The legacy of this Black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet has been well preserved by her colleagues in Germany. These selected writings lay bare struggles, bonds, and hopes shared among Black women in a transnational political context, as well as offering sometimes surprising reflections on the US American counter culture with which Lorde is associated. Many of the poems that were important to Lorde's development are excerpted in full within these pages, serving as a sort of critical anthology.

    This book brings together seminars, readings, and interviews given by Audre Lorde in Germany and Switzerland. The recurrent theme of internationalism in Audre Lorde’s work and perspective is notably prevalent. Her life in St. Croix, the influence of her Caribbean heritage, her travels and teachings in europe and Africa, her commitment to her work with SISSA and with the Kitchen Table Women of Colour Press bringing together Black, Asian, Indigenous american and Latina women are all explored throu This book brings together seminars, readings, and interviews given by Audre Lorde in Germany and Switzerland. The recurrent theme of internationalism in Audre Lorde’s work and perspective is notably prevalent. Her life in St. Croix, the influence of her Caribbean heritage, her travels and teachings in europe and Africa, her commitment to her work with SISSA and with the Kitchen Table Women of Colour Press bringing together Black, Asian, Indigenous american and Latina women are all explored throughout. Dream of europe gives insights into the importance of the time Audre spent in Berlin, the women she met, inspired, and formed friendships with there. This is essential reading for all who value Audre Lorde’s work, and reads especially well as a companion to I Am Your Sister providing additional internationalist context to the scope of her influences and influence outside of the US. I have loved reading it and know I will return to it again and again.

    outstanding collection from Kenning Editions, and kind of interesting to experience in conjunction with my latest self-help pop psych book The Dance of Anger. i loved reading Audre Lorde’s talks, poems, documents, and lectures spanning so many years in germany and took away a lot on self-conscious living, a woman’s survival, embracing difference, and a Black Lesbian genius’s response to the western european landscape of the 80s and 90s
