Publisher Comments:

“God is a lie, / and Faith is a lie, / And a tenfold lie is Love; / Life is a problem without a why, / And never a thing to prove.”—Voltairine de Cleyre

Never as infamous as Emma Goldman, Voltairine de Cleyre distinguished herself as a leading intellectual, activist, speaker and writer with a tremendous impact on American anarchist, feminist and labor movements. Combined into a fully annotated volume are her classic works and writings that have not been widely available since her death in 1912. She reveals the scope and depth of her activism and study through her prose. Her poetry speaks powerfully of the issues closest to her heart.

“The most gifted and brilliant anarchist woman America ever produced.”—Emma Goldman

Book News Annotation:

Now a relatively neglected figure, Voltairine de Cleyre was once lauded by Emma Goldman as "the most gifted and brilliant anarchist woman America ever produced." In an effort to bring her writings to wider attention, Brigati (Marxist and anarchist theory, U. of Montevallo) collects representative essays and poems from the feminist anarchist. Her essays are wide-ranging in their concerns, with her addressing at various times the subordination of women, the educational ideas of Francisco Ferrer, the efficacy of direct action as a tool of struggle, crime and punishment, the relationship between economics and free thought, and the anarchist characteristics of American traditions.
