About this title:

Synopsis: In their comprehensive study Spanish Perspectives on Chicano Literature: Literary and Cultural Essays, editors Jesús Rosales and Vanessa Fonseca provide a fresh set of perspectives on the field of Chicano literary and cultural studies. Composed of essays by scholars who live and work in the United States in addition to those who work primarily in Spain, the book examines how Spanish literary critics view and study Chicano literature. In general, these critics demonstrate a deep interest in Chicano culture in relation to its American, Mexican, and Spanish identities, or multiple cultural mestizajes.
 
 
For Chicanos this interest is intriguing, for they see Spain's vision of the Chicano both with inviting enthusiasm and justifiable reservation-enthusiasm because this interest shows a humanistic concern in understanding their social issues (national identity, bilingualism, immigration, feminism, and so on) in relation to Spain's own, and reservation because there still prevails an "open wound" from their historical connection with that country. In other words, a lingering Spanish colonial presence still exists in the Chicano psyche. These Spanish perspectives are important to consider as Chicano literature reflects on its place in twenty-first-century America and its transnational and global aspirations.
 

Review: "This is an important and unique contribution to the fields of Chicano and Latino literature. It allows for both Spanish and American criticism to exist in the same book, and it includes the voices of people that have been left out of the narrative of influence of theorists like Anzaldua. This transnational book enriches the field of Chicano literature and criticism tremendously." --Gabriella Gutierrez y Muhs, author of Communal Feminisms: Chicanas, Chilenas, and Cultural Exile

"The contributors navigate successfully through different historical moments to illustrate the persistent yet flexible maneuverings of Chicana/o literature." --Ellie Hernandez, author of Postnationalism in Chicana/o Literature and Culture
