Review:

In the title essay of Rebellion, Minnie Bruce Pratt writes from her experience as a white woman in the south where "To embroider the surface of doom with style and manners was the only way to keep your reason." Her personal rebellion involves extending herself beyond the boundaries of style and manners, through reason and passion, to some comprehension of the obstacles and possibilities between people. In her poetry, Minnie Bruce Pratt has explored the capacity of words to expand and communicate her experiences; through her essays she examines this process and tests its limits. She writes of when she first discovered her "outsider" status as a lesbian: "I did not yet understand that to come to a place of greater liberation, I had to risk old safeties. Instead, I felt I had no place; that, as I moved through my days, I was falling through space." She uses insights into her own "loss of place" to explore the dynamics of privilege and difference in other contexts, crossing cultural, racial, political, religious, and sexual boundaries. Each essay in this collection approaches the writer's identity from a different angle, and each essay offers a challenge to assumptions concerning that identity. Minnie Bruce Pratt honors her readers with a trust: she takes us to the edge of her own understanding and invites us to go further with her, as well as on our own. -- For great reviews of books for girls, check out Let's Hear It for the Girls: 375 Great Books for Readers 2-14. -- From 500 Great Books by Women; review by Kirsten Backstrom
