Ortego, Philip D., Ed.
English in Texas, v7 n4 Entire Issue Sum 1976
The introduction to this issue of "English in Texas," by Philip D. Ortego, discusses briefly the need of young Chicanos for a literary identity. In the first article of the issue, Ortego expands the discussion, focusing especially on the background of Mexican-American literature, the history of Mexican Americans in the southwest, and a definition of Mexican-American literature. The second article contains both a bibliography (Chicano short stories, drama, poetry, nonfiction, and novels) and a discussion of the bibliographic items. A section of book reviews and a select, annotated bibliography of Mexican-American poetry for the secondary school literature program--by Albert D. Trevino--conclude the issue. (JM)
