(Originally published by City Lights Books in 1971.) "Now back in print, this expanded edition of Revolutionary Letters shows di Prima at the peak of her artistry. This seminal work of political and personal philosophy is written in a direct but lyrical style, lending itself to exploring emotions and relationships and the phantoms they leave behind. Her poems and stories reflect an artist who is constantly stretching the limits of autobiographical fiction. Diane di Prima is an adept and flexible provider of the real."
