Writing from the Borderlands
A Study of Chicano, Afro-Caribbean and Native Literatures in North America
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
Carmen Cáliz-Montoro was born in Barcelona, Spain. She arrived in Canada in 1988 thanks to a Government of Canada Award, and completed her PhD on poetry at the Centre for Comparative Literature at the University of Toronto. She has taught courses on Spanish and English literature and in Women’s Studies both in Canada and in Spain, and has done translations and published her own poetry in both these countries as well as in the United States.
