Appalachian Elegy, Poetry and Place by bell hooks, University Press of Kentucky, 2012

In light of hooks’ scathing review of Beasts of the Southern Wild, I’m perplexed by the parallel  in her discussing her own wildness growing up here in Kentucky found in the Introduction.  “They were not wanting to tame the wildness, in themselves or nature.  Living in the Kentucky hills was were I first learned the importance of being wild”, page 1.

    I last read Bell Hooks in law school… and given how many reservations I had about “Beasts of…” your post is spurring me on to find her review.

    • Dee, she might have walked out on the movie…I have always found hooks’ views mind and heart opening space, but I for the first time I really found myself in an opposing dialogue with her take on the movie. Let me know if you can’t find it…It was a guest post on someone’s blog.
