Hunger of Memory Book Description :

Hunger of Memory is the story of Mexican-American Richard Rodriguez, who begins his schooling in Sacramento, California, knowing just 50 words of English, and concludes his university studies in the stately quiet of the reading room of the British Museum. Here is the poignant journey of a “minority student” who pays the cost of his social assimilation and academic success with a painful alienation — from his past, his parents, his culture — and so describes the high price of “making it” in middle-class America. Provocative in its positions on affirmative action and bilingual education, Hunger of Memory is a powerful political statement, a profound study of the importance of language ... and the moving, intimate portrait of a boy struggling to become a man. From the Paperback edition.

Literature and Ethnicity in the Cultural Borderlands Book Description :

This volume stems from the idea that the notion of borders and borderlines as clear-cut frontiers separating not only political and geographical areas, but also cultural, linguistic and semiotic spaces, does not fully address the complexity of contemporary cultural encounters. Centering on a whole range of literary works from the United States and the Caribbean, the contributors suggest and discuss different theoretical and methodological grounds to address the literary production taking place across the lines in North American and Caribbean culture. The volume represents a pioneering attempt at proposing the concept of the border as a useful paradigm not only for the study of Chicano literature but also for the other American literatures. The works presented in the volume illustrate various aspects and manifestations of the textual border(lands), and explore the double-voiced discourse of border texts by writers like Harriet E. Wilson, Rudolfo Anaya, Toni Morrison, Cormac McCarthy, Louise Erdrich, Helena Viramontes, Paule Marshall and Monica Sone, among others. This book is of interest for scholars and researchers in the field of comparative American studies and ethnic studies.

Memory s Stories Book Description :

Memory's Stories is an interdisciplinary analysis of multicultural life narratives. The author created an innovative schema to evaluate classic and contemporary texts, synthesizing theoretical perspectives from psychology, literary theory, feminist and multicultural studies. The schema is based on his fifteen years of teaching undergraduate and graduate courses, such as "Multicultural Autobiographies" and "Psychology, Multicultural Narratives, and Religion." Chapter One introduces the author's schema and explores Saint Augustine's The Confessions. Chapter Two uses Erik Erikson's psychosocial development theory to examine Thomas Merton's The Seven Storey Mountain. In Chapter Three, the author evaluates Black Elk Speaks and The Autobiography of Malcolm X, using William James's psychology of religion framework. Feminist literary theorists, like Sidonie Smith, provide the critical tools for Chapter Four and Maxine Hong Kingston's The Woman Warrior. In Chapter Five, with Dan McAdams's life story model of identity, the author analyzes three serial autobiographies by Richard Rodriguez: Hunger of Memory; Days of Obligation; and Brown. Chapter Six synthesizes recent interdisciplinary scholarship on redemption stories, innovative composition strategies, and cognitive science research on autobiographical memory, evaluating James McBride's auto/biography, The Color of Water.

Threshold Time Book Description :

Threshold Time provides an introductory survey of the cultural, social and political history of Mexican American and Chicano literature, as well as a new in-depth analyses of a selection of works that between them span a hundred years of this particular branch of American literature. The book begins its explorations of the ?passage of crisis? with Maria Amparo Ruiz de Burton's The Squatter and the Don, continues with Americo Paredes? George Washington Gomez, Tomas Rivera's ?And the Earth Did Not Devour Him, Richard Rodriguez's Hunger of Memory, and ends with Helena Maria Viramontes? Under the Feet of Jesus and Benjamin Alire Saenz? Carry Me Like Water. In order to do justice to the idiosyncrasies of the individual texts and the complexities they embrace, the analyses refer to a number of other texts belonging to the tradition, and draw on a wide range of theoretical approaches. The final chapter of Threshold Time brings the various readings together in a discussion circumscribed by the negotiations of a temporality that is strongly aligned with a sense of memory peculiar to the history of the Chicano presence in the United States of America.Table of ContentsAcknowledgements Introduction: The Open Totality of Thresholds I.

Tom s Rivera 1935 1984 Book Description :

In 1977 I knew Tomas Rivera only as a name. I had read his novel, "... y no se lo trago la tierra" and I had talked about his work and career with friends. One cold winter day, after talking to Rolando Hinojosa about a keynote speaker for the First Midwest Latino Conference on Higher Education, I called Tomas and invited him to be that speaker. He accepted. Why did he come to the frozen corn fields of DeKalb, Illinois? He came because he knew the Midwest as a migrant worker. He came because he knew that Chicanos and Hispanics lived and worked throughout the United States. He came because he wanted to reach out to Chicanos and contribute to their life. He came because he knew that the human voice, the personal contact, was magic. He came because he knew the power of words and of communication, and he knew that an individual can make a difference. We are all better because Tomas came to DeKalb, and because he contributed so much. I remember Tomas as a strong but gentle man who loved life and loved people. This volume in honor of Tomas is a small contribution, a small repayment, for all that Tomas gave us. All of the contributors to this special volume of homenaje to Tomas Rivera have their own memories of Tomas. Each has been touched by his life and his works in different ways, yet each remembers. Their contributions to this volume are their way of honoring that memory and that man, Tomas Rivera. -- from the preface by Vernon E. Lattin.
