There is so much packed in here, I don’t know where to start. One thing I notice is Jungian psychology. Knowing thyself is something Jung stresses. Confronting your shadow and your persona and your animus and anima; one must do this in order that fate doesn’t control one’s life. When Lorde says, “I am the face of one of your fears. … [b]ecause I am … doing my work … come to ask you, are you doing yours?” it’s as if she is invoking Jung’s concept of the shadow, of the anima, and of the animus (warrior) and challenging us to challenge our persona, in order that we may be more true to ourselves.
Even if she were not talking about race, gender, sexual orientation, or other concepts which she held dear, this is great insight on how to be psychologically healthy.

Just a little interesting to use “her” since traditionally “him” is used. Lorde does the same thing by using the word “sister” below instead of “brother.”
