This pathbreaking anthology of Chicano literary criticism, with essays on a remarkable range of texts–both old and new–draws on diverse perspectives in contemporary literary and cultural studies: from ethnographic to postmodernist, from Marxist to feminist, from cultural materialist to new historicist. The editors have organized essays around four broad themes: the situation of Chicano literary studies within American literary history and debates about the “canon”; representations of Chicano/a subjects; genre, ideology, and history; and the aesthetics of Chicano literature. The volume as a whole aims at generating new ways of understanding what counts as culture and “theory” and who counts as theorists. A selected and annotated bibliography of contemporary Chicano literary criticism is also included.
