This collection of critical essays addresses the complex relationship between contemporary literature theory and Chicano literature—a literature that is not part of the traditional literary cannon. The contributors, including Yolanda Julia Broyles, Héctor Calderón, Margarita Cotá-Cárdenas, Lauro Flores, Patricia de la Fuente, Rolando Hinojosa, Luis Leal, José David Saldívar, Ramón Saldívar, María I. Duke dos Santos, and Rosaura Sánchez, draw upon a diverse array of theories—Marxist, feminist, post-structuralist—to make fresh, critical comments, not only on Rolando Hinojosa’s work, Klail City Death Trip series, but also on literary theory today.
