Abstract

Lorna Dee Cervantes is a pivotal figure throughout the Chicano literary movement and this book gathers 30 years' worth of essays and articles about her as well as interviews with her. A fifth-generation Californian of Mexican and Native American (Chumasch) heritage, Cervantes is widely considered one of the most important Latina poets who drew tremendous power from her struggles in the literary and political trenches. This work explores the boundaries between language and experience and features a new collection of poems by the dynamic poet.
