Half of the world in light : new and selected poems by Juan Felipe Herrera( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 754 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For nearly four decades, Juan Felipe Herrera has documented his experience as a Chicano in the United States and Latin America through stunning, memorable poetry that is both personal and universal in its impact, themes, and approach. Often political, never fainthearted, his career has been marked by tremendous virtuosity and a unique sensibility for uncovering the unknown and the unexpected. Through a variety of stages and transformations, Herrera has evolved more than almost any other Chicano poet, always re-inventing himself into a more mature and seasoned voice. Now, in this unprecedented collection, we encounter the trajectory of this highly innovative and original writer, bringing the full scope of his singular vision into view. Beginning with early material from A Certain Man and moving through thirteen of his collections into new, previously unpublished work, this assemblage also includes an audio CD of the author reading twenty-four selected poems aloud. Serious scholars and readers alike will now have available to them a representative set of glimpses into his production as well as his origins and personal development. The ultimate value of bringing together such a collection, however, is that it will allow us to better understand and appreciate the complexity of what this major American poet is all about."--Publisher's description
Aztlán : essays on the Chicano homeland by Rudolfo A Anaya( Book )

24 editions published between 1989 and 2017 in English and Spanish and held by 526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"...As a symbol for political action, a place of spiritual plentitude, or as a challenge to transcend ethnic borders, Aztlan emerges throughout these essays as one of the Chicano Movement's fundamental ideological constructs. This volume will be of interest to students and critics concerned with the understanding and comprehensive reconstruction of one of the Chicano cultural emblems of the late 1960s. Given the present emphasis in Chicano studies on discourse analysis and critique of ideologies, this volume is a contribution to Chicano cultural criticism."--Roberto Cantu, California State University
Chicano studies : a multidisciplinary approach( Book )

5 editions published between 1983 and 1993 in English and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Barrio on the edge = Caras viejas y vino nuevo by Alejandro Morales( Book )

6 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Barrio on the Edge/Caras viejas y vino nuevo presents contemporary barrio life through the eyes of two teenage boys - the self-destructive and irresponsible Julian, and Mateo, his friend and admirer. These two viewpoints come to represent larger conflicts within a community in which the shared values of friendship, family, and religion are menaced by generational conflicts and the increasing role of violence, drugs, and brutal sexuality in barrio life." "The Spanish is paired with a new English translation by Francisco A. Lomeli prepared with the author's collaboration. The volume includes an introduction by the translator and a bibliography of works by and about Morales."--Jacket
Chicano sketches : short stories by Mario Suárez( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A key figure in the foundation of Chicano literature, Mario Suarez (1923-1998) was among the first writers to focus not only on Chicano characters but also on the multicultural space in which they live, whether a Tucson barbershop or a Manhattan boxing ring. Many of his stories have received wide acclaim through publication in periodicals and anthologies; this book presents those eleven previously published stories along with eight others from the archive of his unpublished work." "In most of his stories, Suarez sought to portray people he knew from Tucson's El Hoyo barrio, a place usually thought of as urban wasteland when it was thought of at all. Suarez set out to fictionalize this place of ignored men and women because he believed their human stories were worth telling, and he hoped that through his depictions American literature would recognize their existence. By focusing on these barrio characters - the deviant and the virtuous, the mischievous and the mysterious - he also crafted a unique, mild-mannered realism overflowing with humor and pathos."--Jacket
Chicano perspectives in literature : a critical and annotated bibliography by Francisco A Lomelí( Book )

8 editions published in 1976 in English and Spanish and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As an effort to define and explore the horizons of Chicano literature, this annotated and critical bibliography provides bibliographical data and critical evaluations and judgments regarding the quality, importance, and impact of 131 literary works by Chicanos. The commentaries are intended to be taken as opinions with the objective for promoting critical dialogue and contributing to Chicano literary criticism. Entries are divided into the following categories: poetry, novel, short fiction, theatre, anthology, literary criticism, oral tradition in print, journal, and "literatura Chicanesca" (written by non-Chicanos). Some reflect a creative force while others study and classify it. Oral tradition in print is included because it still remains a constant source of "inspiracion popular". Among those works evaluated are the literary works of Alurista, Rudolfo Anaya, Juan Bruce-Novoa, Fray Angelico Chavez, Abelardo Delgado, Rolando R. Hinojosa-S., Sabine R. Ulibarri, Luis M. Valdez, Roberto Lara Vialpando, Floyd Salas, Luis Omar Salinas, Ines H. Tovar, and Tino Villanueva. In order to reach both the inexperienced and the scholar reader, a glossary, explaining the more technical terminology and literary concepts used in the annotations, is included. An author index is also provided, along with a brief discussion of Chicano literature in terms of its origin, historical dilemma, ideology, and definition. (Author/NQ)
