Zami: A New Spelling of My Name is a 1982 autobiography by African American poet Audre Lorde. It started a new genre that the author calls biomythography, which combines history, biography, and myth. In the text, Lorde writes that "Zami" is "a Carriacou name for women who work together as friends and lovers," Carriacou being the Caribbean island from which her mother immigrated
One long stretch of Zami: A New Spelling of My Name treats the reader to a view of the lesbian bar scene of New York City during the 1950s. Another portion explores factory working conditions in nearby Connecticut and the limited job options for a young black woman who had not yet gone to college or learned to type. The reader also learns about Audre Lorde’s time spent in Mexico, the beginnings of writing poetry, her first lesbian relationships and her experience with abortion. The prose is mesmerizing at certain points, and always promising as it dips in and out of the rhythms of New York that helped shape Audre Lorde into the prominent feminist poet she became. Although the book was published in 1982, this story tapers off around 1960, so there is no recounting in Zami of Audre Lorde’s rise to poetry fame or her involvement in 1960s and 1970s feminist theory.

Lorde's mother hails from the Caribbean island of Carriacou, and Lorde tells the reader the Zami is a Carriacou name for women who work together, who are friends and who are also lovers. Lorde begins the book by declaring that she has drawn much of her strength as a woman to the women in her life who taught her how to harness her own power, and the majority of the book is devoted to the stories of other women whom she celebrates. These papers were written primarily by students and provide critical analysis of Zami: A New Spelling of My Name by Audre Lorde.

This act of name-exchange, of substitution is traditionally referred to as transference, for, indeed, the name of one object is transferred onto another, proceeding from their similarity (of shape, colour, function, et., or closeness (of material existence, cause/ effect, instrument/result, part/whole relations, et. Each type of intended substitution results in a stylistic device (SD) called also a trope. So that formally we deal with the name transference based on the similarity of one feature common to two different entities, while in fact each one enters a phrase in the complexity of its other characteristics.
