Illuminates major themes and artistic visions
The only comprehensive anthology of Chicano literature, this work charts the rise and evolution of contemporary Mexican American writing in the context of its major themes: the search for identity, feminism, conservatism, revisionism, homoeroticism, and internationalism. These are the symbolic lenses that through language have focused on the artistic visions that since the mid-l960s have earned Chicano literary works national and international prizes and critical acclaim.
Includes selections from the best writers
The texts presented in this anthology include late-19th and early 20th-century "oppositional" writings, as well as works with dominant rural or urban settings.
