About this title

Synopsis:

In Liliane: Resurrection of the Daughter, Ntozake Shange brings the strands of memories, dreams, and expectations of a young black woman's life into ours. Through the voices of her childhood friends, Roxie, Lollie, and Bernadette, we encounter the last moments of legal segregation in Mississippi and the beginnings of class war within the black community of Queens. The voices of her lovers, Victor-Jesus, Zoom, Thayer, and Sawyer, reveal Liliane in the more closeted dynamics of romance, both colored and not so colored.
But it is in her own works as an artist that Liliane reveals most of what she knows about herself to her world and our own. Yet what Liliane does not know of herself, that which is buried, the underneath, the riches of the unconscious, become present during the years and hours of Liliane's classic analysis.
By brilliantly interweaving the voices of Liliane and her analyst with monologues from the friends and lovers who have formed the geography of her experience, the actualities and eccentricities of Liliane's past come to use through her, and what were pieces of a young girl's life become the landscape of her future.
