Example text

Thus, in the Mayan Popol Vuh the ‘gods’ create humans from corn, in Moraga’s play the woman, owing to her work in the kitchen, is the one who figures it out. An American Book Award recipient in 1996, Victor Martínez’s Parrot in the Oven explodes with intense emotions and violence. A portrait of barrio life, this novel depicts the family father’s struggles with alcoholism and unemployment, and even incarceration. Born in Fresno like Soto, Martínez attended Stanford University and worked as a field laborer, truck driver, and teacher as he developed his poetry and novels.

Her ongoing analysis is of women called vendidas (traitors, those who sell-out). Moraga cites La Malinche, as Chicanas often do, but focuses on the Indian woman’s mother, who is said to have sold her into slavery upon remarrying. Moraga’s La Malinche does not blame her mother when she encounters her later in life. Moraga posits that women should emulate La Malinche and not her mother, by not selling out to institutional heterosexuality. She also reviews the roles of the iconic Virgin of Guadalupe and mystical La Llorona – both mother images – and reconsiders their influence on contemporary Mexican-American women.
