Chicano Perspectives in Literature--A Critical and Annotated Bibliography.
Lomeli, Francisco A.; Urioste, Donaldo W.
As an effort to define and explore the horizons of Chicano literature, this annotated and critical bibliography provides bibliographical data and critical evaluations and judgments regarding the quality, importance, and impact of 131 literary works by Chicanos. The commentaries are intended to be taken as opinions with the objective for promoting critical dialogue and contributing to Chicano literary criticism. Entries are divided into the following categories: poetry, novel, short fiction, theatre, anthology, literary criticism, oral tradition in print, journal, and "literatura Chicanesca" (written by non-Chicanos). Some reflect a creative force while others study and classify it. Oral tradition in print is included because it still remains a constant source of "inspiracion popular". Among those works evaluated are the literary works of Alurista, Rudolfo Anaya, Juan Bruce-Novoa, Fray Angelico Chavez, Abelardo Delgado, Rolando R. Hinojosa-S., Sabine R. Ulibarri, Luis M. Valdez, Roberto Lara Vialpando, Floyd Salas, Luis Omar Salinas, Ines H. Tovar, and Tino Villanueva. In order to reach both the inexperienced and the scholar reader, a glossary, explaining the more technical terminology and literary concepts used in the annotations, is included. An author index is also provided, along with a brief discussion of Chicano literature in terms of its origin, historical dilemma, ideology, and definition. (Author/NQ)
