About This Title

Brilliantly honed language, sharp rhythms and striking syntax empower Lucille Clifton's personal and artistic odyssey. Hers is poetry of birth, death, children, community, history, sexuality and spirituality, and she addresses these themes with passion, humor, anger and spiritual awe.


Praise for Quilting

"Clifton mythologizes herself: that is, she illuminates her surroundings and history from within in a way that casts light on much beyond." —Marilyn Hacker, The Women's Review of Books

eve's version

smooth talker
slides into my dreams
and fills them with apple
apple snug as my breast
in the palm of my hand
apple sleek apple sweet
and bright in my mouth

it is your own lush self
you hunger for
he whispers    lucifer
