Back cover copy

Born and raised in the rural South, bell hooks learned early the power of the written word and the importance of speaking her mind. This passion for words is the heartbeat of this contemplative collection of essays. Remembered Rapture celebrates literacy, the joys of reading and writing, and the lasting power of the book. These essays once again reveal bell hooks's wide-ranging intellectual scope; if W. E. B. DuBois elegantly dissected the double consciousness of African-Americans, bell hooks, with similar insight and vision, untangles the complex personae of women writers, especially those whose work goes against the grain.
