Blood Lines: Myth, Indigenism, and Chicana/o Literature: by Sheila Marie Contreras

By Sheila Marie Contreras

Blood traces: delusion, Indigenism, and Chicana/o Literature examines a extensive array of texts that experience contributed to the formation of an indigenous strand of Chicano cultural politics. particularly, this ebook exposes the ethnographic and poetic discourses that formed the aesthetics and stylistics of Chicano nationalism and Chicana feminism. Contreras bargains unique views on writers starting from Alurista and Gloria Anzaldúa to Lorna Dee Cervantes and Alma Luz Villanueva, successfully marking the invocation of a Chicano indigeneity whose foundations and formulations may be associated with U.S. and British modernist writing.By highlighting intertextualities reminiscent of these among Anzaldúa and D. H. Lawrence, Contreras evaluations the resilience of primitivism within the Mexican borderlands. She questions verified cultural views on "the native," which mockingly problem and reaffirm racialized representations of Indians within the Americas. In doing so, Blood strains brings a brand new knowing to the contradictory and richly textured literary courting that hyperlinks the initiatives of eu modernism and Anglo-American authors, at the one hand, and the imaginary of the post-revolutionary Mexican nation and Chicano/a writers, at the different hand.
