The hungry woman by Cherríe Moraga( Book )

6 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in English and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Hungry Woman, grounded in the Medea legend and Mesoamerican mythology, reinvents the story of Aztlan in the "near future," visualizing a world in which the Chicano/a nation has won a living space but betrayed the principle of equality of the fighters for the revolution. Passionate, earthy, and tragic, full of heroism and villainy, the play calls on a new audience to deal with an imagined political reality." "The Heart of the Earth is a feminist revisioning of the Quiche Maya Popul Vuh story, with lessons for modernity about the evils of racial doctrine, patriarchy, and greed. Moraga's improbable heroes, vatos locos returned from the deadly underworld, reveal that the real power of creation was always closer to home. The script, a collaboration with puppet maker Ralph Lee, was created for the premiere production of the play at the Public Theatre in New York in 1994."--BOOK JACKET
Waiting in the wings : portrait of a queer motherhood by Cherríe Moraga( Book )

7 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A jewel of a book by this celebrated Chicana lesbian writer chronicling 'one small human being's struggle for survival, ' her 21/2-pound premature baby boy. While the specifics belong to Moraga and her loved ones, the tale is told in common with every woman who has experienced the wonder and terror of pregnancy, the trauma of a child's near-death."--Jacket
A Xicana codex of changing consciousness : writings, 2000-2010 by Cherríe Moraga( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Xicana Codex of Changing Consciousness features essays and poems by Cherríe L. Moraga, one of the most influential figures in Chicana/o, feminist, queer, and indigenous activism and scholarship. Combining moving personal stories with trenchant political and cultural critique, the writer, activist, teacher, dramatist, mother, daughter, comadre, and lesbian lover looks back on the first ten years of the twenty-first century. She considers decade-defining public events such as 9/11 and the campaign and election of Barack Obama, and she explores socioeconomic, cultural, and political phenomena closer to home, sharing her fears about raising her son amid increasing urban violence and the many forms of dehumanization faced by young men of color. Moraga describes her deepening grief as she loses her mother to Alzheimer's; pays poignant tribute to friends who passed away, including the sculptor Marsha Gómez and the poets Alfred Arteaga, Pat Parker, and Audre Lorde; and offers a heartfelt essay about her personal and political relationship with Gloria Anzaldúa. Thirty years after the publication of Anzaldúa and Moraga's collection This Bridge Called My Back, a landmark of women-of-color feminism, Moraga's literary and political praxis remains motivated by and intertwined with indigenous spirituality and her identity as Chicana lesbian. Yet aspects of her thinking have changed over time. A Xicana Codex of Changing Consciousness reveals key transformations in Moraga's thought; the breadth, rigor, and philosophical depth of her work; her views on contemporary debates about citizenship, immigration, and gay marriage; and her deepening involvement in transnational feminist and indigenous activism."--Back cover
