Summary
  • "Understanding Contemporary Chicana Literature explores the work of six notable authors to reveal characteristic themes, images, and stylistic devices that make contemporary Chicana writing a vibrant and innovative part of a burgeoning Latina creativity. Describing Chicana literature as a quest for self-definition, Deborah L. Madsen provides close readings of the poetry, prose, novels, and short fiction. Madsen identifies the historical, social, and feminist ties that unite these writers and examines in detail the development of a distinctive feminine ethnic-racial voice, rather than the traditional patriarchal perspective, through which they express their culture."--Jacket
