Writing from the Borderlands: A Study of Chicano, Afro-Caribbean and Native Literatures in North America – Carmen Cáliz-Montoro

writing-from-the-borderlandsThis work looks at the literary responses of three North American minorities: the Chicanos in the United States, the African Caribbean minority in Canada, and the Native North Americans. Examining in detail the poetry of Gloria Anzaldúa and Alma Villanueva, and the performative work of Guillermo Gómez-Peña; the fiction and poetry of Dionne Brand, Claire Harris, and Marlene Nourbese Philip; the plays of Tomson Highway and the poetry of Arthur Solomon, Carmen Cáliz-Montoro shows how in these diverse yet similar cases mythology and symbolism get transformed and recreated to respond to the burdens of history to produce new works of art.
