Writing from the Borderlands

A Study of Chicano, Afro-Caribbean and Native Literatures in North America

 

Carmen Cáliz-Montoro

This work looks at three “borderlands” literary responses: those of the Chicanos at the border between the southern United States and Mexico, the African Caribbean minority in Canada, and the Native North Americans. Carmen Cáliz-Montoro shows how in these diverse yet similar cases mythology and symbolism get transformed and recreated to respond to the burdens of history to produce new works of art.

"A beautiful discourse on feminine spirituality in literature. Cáliz-Montoro’s writing is distinguished by a sincere search for truth, harmony, and peace."
—Frederick Ivor Case, University of Toronto
