Series: Wor(l)ds of Change: Latin American and Iberian Literature, Volume 3
Contemporary Mexican-American women novelists – some of whom are moving toward a Chicana feminist construct – have produced very exciting work. Using the works of both Gloria Anzaldúa and Elaine Showalter as theoretical frameworks, this study argues for a specific Chicana feminism whose roots are both in and outside the Mexican-American culture. The authors included in Contemporary Mexican-American Women Novelists are Ana Castillo, Denise Chávez, Sandra Cisneros, Lucha Corpi, Margarita Cota-Cádenas, Roberta Fernández, Laura del Fuego, Irene Beltrán Hernández, Mary Helen Ponce, and Estela Portillo Trambley.
