Literatura chicana : vida en busca de forma by Tomás Rivera( Book )

5 editions published between 1971 and 1980 in English and Spanish and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Chicano culture is searching for appropriate expression in art forms and literature. The Chicano novel and essay, often written in English, seem directed toward the North American public. The short story is the most varied in viewpoint and most versatile in form. Poetry captures the Chicano sensitivity. It is almost impossible to note the variety of forms, different languages, and mixtures of language in poetry. Drama is experimental and seeks to be didactic, using sarcasm and irony. The art forms most capable of changing the stereotype are written in English. Those forms most capable of reaching Chicanos are written in popular language or in Spanish. (VM)
