In This Bridge Called My Back, Gloria Anzaldua wrote: "A woman who writes has power. A woman who writes is feared." In the eyes of the world this makes us dangerous beasts.' Her statement marked a moment of collective self-recognition. Radical Chicana Poetics considers this moment as a point of entry into Chicana writings. Offering a transdisciplinary analysis of works by Gloria Anzaldua, Cherrie Moraga, Ana Castillo, Emma Perez, Alicia Gaspar de Alba, and Sandra Cisneros, this book explores how radical Chicanas deal with tensions that arise from their focus on the body, desire, and writing. Devling into the subtle differences between the poets, Ricardo F. Vivancos Perez sheds new light on contemporary cultural production and feminist activism.
