Description - We Heal from Memory by Cassie Premo Steele
Through an examination of the poetry of Anne Sexton, Audre Lorde, and Gloria Anzaldua this book paints a vivid picture of how our culture carries a history of traumatic violence: child sexual abuse, the ownership and enforcement of women's sexuality under slavery, the transmission of violence through generations, and the destruction of non white cultures and their histories through colonization. According to the author, the poetry of Sexton, Lorde, and Anzaldua allows us to witness and to heal from such disparate traumatic events.
