18 poems from American anarchism's outstanding poet - 13 that originally appeared in Mother Earth - 5 anthologized for the first time herein. It includes several of her Haymarket poems, as well as moving tributes to feminist Mary Wollstonecraft, John Peter Altgeld and the Mexican Revolution. In an informative introduction, surrealist poet and labor historian Franklin Rosemont salutes the 'irreducible rage against stifling conventions', the 'free-spirited, no compromise, daredevil intensity' and the 'hauntingly wild and violent lyricism' that are the hallmarks of De Cleyre's poetry - and indeed, of her life.
