  • Književno ustvarjanje srednjeameriških priseljencev v ZDA = (Literary Creativity of Central American Immigrants in the USA) : doktorska disertacija
    Grum, Špela, 1986-
    This dissertation focuses on the literary creativity of Chicano writers predominantly from 1943 to the present day, in the so-called Chicano period. The writing and research specifically target ... Chicano writers Sandra Cisneros, Ana Castillo and Helena María Viramontes. The main subject of research and analysis are the female myths of prehispanic or Mexican past expressed in the writing of these authors. The objective is to determine and investigate the three main symbols or myths, such as are La Virgen de Guadalupe, La Malinche and La Llorona, which occur in the novels The House on Mango Street (1991), Caramelo (2002) and Woman Hollering Creek (1991) by Sandra Cisneros, So Far from God (1993) by Ana Castillo, Under the Feet of Jesus (1995) by Helena María Viramontes and the Block Captain's Daughter (2012) by Demetria Martínez. The analysed female Chicano writers are particularly focused on the position of Chicanas in the family unit, especially in relation to men. The important concepts, discussed and considered in this dissertation, are the concepts of the Borderlands, mestizaje and machismo. In addition, the stereotypical roles of men and especially women in Chicano/Mexican families portrayed in the above-mentioned novels of prominent female writers. The dissertation focused particularly on the expression and portrayal of female characters through the use of three dominating myths of the Mexican culture (one of them an actual historical figure) - the myths of La Malinche, La Virgen de Guadalupe and La Llorona. The analyses in this dissertation also considered Gloria E. Anzaldúa's valuable insight into the psyche of Chicanas and different aspects of their collective identity contained in her work Borderlands: La Frontera (1979). It is also taken as a reference regarding her proposed concept of the new mestiza consciousness in order to analyse how much of the new mestiza, which is the product of ''[...] racial, ideological, cultural and biological crosspolinization'' (Anzaldúa 1979: 99), is in the main characters of these writers' works and how the portrayal of female characters reflects the above-mentioned Mexican and Aztec myths. 106 The main objective of this dissertation is, therefore, to identify and determine the extent of the utilisation of the main three myths for the portrayal of female characters in the analysed novels, in combination with gender and racial stereotypes. Furthermore, it will explore how these portrayals are pivoted against the male expression of machismo, which is by Anglo-Americans (Anglos) perceived as a degenerate expression of a man's weakness and is characteristic of the Mexican/Chicano culture. In addition, it will explore the rigid beliefs and gender dynamics expressed in the analysed works.
