I am Joaquin. Yo Soy Joaquin. An Epic Poem with a Chronology of People and Events in Mexican and Mexican American History.
Gonzales, Rodolfo
Both Spanish and English versions of the epic poem "I Am Joaquin" are given in this book. "I Am Joaquin" is the first work of poetry to be published by Chicanos for Chicanos. It is a historical essay of the greatness and weakness of the Chicano people. Their psychological wounds, cultural genocide, social castration, nobility, courage, determination, and fortitude to move on to make new history are depicted in this epic poem. A chronology of people and events from Mexican and Mexican American history is given for use primarily as a guide to references made in the poem. (NQ)
