New PDF release: Female mythologies in contemporary chicana literature

By Nadine Gebhardt

ISBN-13: 9783638715812

Thesis (M.A.) from the yr 2005 within the topic American stories - Literature, grade: 1,0, Ernst Moritz Arndt college of Greifswald, eighty three entries within the bibliography, language: English, summary: In Mexican-American/ Chicano tradition, female archetypes from the Mexican culture play an immense position for woman’s subjectivity. generally, such archetypes epitomize Catholic-patriarchal buildings of womanhood. Idolized by means of the figures of the Virgin of Guadalupe, los angeles Malinche, and los angeles Llorona, the main triumphing representations of woman sexuality and motherhood evolve round the passive virgin, the sinful seductress, and the traitorous mom.
Along the strains of Chicana feminism, the conventional definitions of those female archetypes should be visible as selling a picture of girl that's dangerous to woman subjectivity. even supposing there are 3 figures, those archetypes evoke a binary competition that defines lady as both “good lady” or “bad woman,” “virgin” or “whore.” As such, they restrict and circumscribe the Chicana’s improvement of subjectivity.
But those cultural icons can also epitomize female strength, and as a result give you the Chicana with attainable feminist position types to again up her emancipation. Chicana feminists have hired artistic writing to counter the Catholic-patriarchal discourse at the Virgin of Guadalupe, Malinche, and l. a. Llorona. As they discover those cultural archetypes of their novels, brief tales, and poems, Chicana feminists try and demonstrate the mechanisms through which the unique photographs of those mythic figures were subverted, disempowered, and distorted. yet most significantly, they search to deconstruct the virgin/whore dichotomy by way of rewriting the mythic figures. via a revision of current myths, Chicana writers may be able to create a feminist mythology that's rooted in cultural culture yet concurrently serves as an act of resistance to the dominant discourse.
This Master’s thesis will discover the mythic figures of Guadalupe, Malinche, and los angeles Llorona in all their complexity, and speak about their fundamental position in modern Chicana literature by way of targeting diverse examples of artistic writing supplied via 3 of the main articulate and robust Chicana voices:

Helena Maria Viramontes: “The damaged internet” and “The Cariboo Cafe”
Sandra Cisneros: “Little Miracles, saved Promises,” “Never Marry a Mexican” and “Woman Hollering Creek”
Ana Castillo: to this point from God
