Movements in Chicano Poetry by Rafael Perez-Torres
Book DescriptionInterpreting specific poems by some of the best known Chicano writers, this book studies the central aesthetic and thematic concerns recent Chicano poetry addresses. Drawing on current theories of postmodernity and postcoloniality, it places a 'minority' literature within the central concerns of contemporary literary and cultural studies. The book addresses the most important issues related to Chicano identity, especially focusing on the contribution women writers and thinkers have made in articulating this identity. The study will thus be of interest to scholars specialising in feminist, cultural as well as Chicano/a studies.

Focusing on the role race plays in expressions of Chicano culture, this work is a provocative exploration of the volatility and mutability of racial identities. Informed by theoretical investigation of identity politics and race and incorporating feminist and queer critiques, the author analyzes Chicano cultural production.
