Cultural Writing. Latino/Latina Studies, African American Studies and Native American Studies. This work looks at three borderlands literary responses: those of Chicanos at the border between the southern United States and Mexico, the African Caribbean minority in Canada, and the Native North Americans. Examining the poetry of Gloria Anzaldua and Alma Villanueva and the performance work of Guillermo Gomez-Pena; the poetry and prose of Dionne Brand and the plays of Tomson Highway, Carmen C liz-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. **Call to check inventory before ordering.
