Alvina E. Quintana examines how Chicana writers engage literary convention, through fiction, poetry, drama, and autobiography, as a means of addressing these motives." "Her analysis of the writings of Gloria Anzaldua, Ana Castillo, Denise Chavez, Sandra Cisneros, and Cherrie Moraga addresses a multitude of issues: the social and political forces that influenced the Chicana aesthetic; Chicana efforts to open a dialogue about the limitations of both Anglo-American feminism and Chicano nationalism; experimentations with content and form; the relationship between imaginary writing and self-reflexive ethnography; and performance, domesticity, and sexuality." "Employing anthropological, feminist, historical, and literary sources, Quintana explores the continuity found among Chicanas writing across varied genres - a drive to write themselves into discourse."--Jacket." ;
