About this product
- DescriptionMigration and continuity have shaped both the Chica people and their oral and written literature. In this pathfinding study of Chica literature, Teresa McKenna specifically explores how these works arise out of social, political, and psychological conflict and how the development of Chica literature is inextricably embedded in this fact. McKenna begins by appraising the evolution of Chica literature from oral forms-including the important role of the corrido in the development of Chica poetry. In subsequent chapters she examines the works of Richard Rodriguez and Rolando Hijosa. She also devotes a chapter to the development of the Chicana voice in Chica literature. Her epilogue considers the parallel development of Chica literary theory and discusses some possible directions for research. In McKenna's own words, I believe that the future of this literature, as that of all literatures by people of color in the United States, rests largely on its being effectively introduced into the curricula at all levels, as well as its entrance into the critical consciousness of literary theory. This book will be an important step in that process.
