The Hidden Wound

by Wendell Berry

Although this book was assigned for a class and not something I simply picked up, it was a really enjoyable read. Berry uses beautiful prose and great literary devices to help himself — and all of us — understand the real implications of racism, not only for the victims but for the racists. He feels that as whites we have done ourselves a great injury by failing to acknowledge, accept, and appreciate the widsom and worth of other cultures.

Such a short book is easy to get through, but I found myself flipping back through it to reread passages. If you’re in the mood for something poetic, honest, and philosophical, pick up a copy of The Hidden Wound. (And let me know what you think of it!)
