Releasing serpents by Bernice Zamora( Book )

"Bernice Zamora's long-awaited second book of poetry combines her previously published, well-received poems with a selection of new work. Her first collection, Restless Serpents (1976), was critically acclaimed for its mature, carefully crafted poems that successfully combine folklore, political insights, and academic concerns. The thirty new poems in this volume show, when juxtaposed with the earlier ones, Zamora's enduring preoccupation with a sense of self as it is heightened by participation in the community. Her poetic voice attempts to retrieve the Chicano past, both the positive and problematic elements, and examine it within the developing Chicano culture. Zamora's poetry is often political and gender-specific. Nevertheless, it is never narcissistic, for it portrays the Chicana self as it functions in the larger, advancing Chicano community. In this sense, Zamora is a constructive and political folk poet. In her work, the Chicana self functions neither to be absorbed into nor alienated from the larger community, but rather to challenge and modify its assumptions."--BOOK JACKET
