Abstract:

Imagine Being More Afraid of Freedom than Slavery tackles both personal and contemporary issues of enslavement, sexuality, emotional trauma, and physical abuse. From beginning to end, these poems chart the journey that is life and one woman's escape from the cycle of dependency as she recovers her lost identity. Thematically, they are bound by a writer's search for love and freedom, drawing on the spirit and will of Harriet Tubman, the image of Emmett Till's bloated body, the bombing of Philadelphia's MOVE, and lesbian love.
