Chicano Poetics: Heterotexts and Hybridities by Alfred Arteaga

By Alfred Arteaga

Chicano Poetics: Heterotexts and Hybridities examines the crossing of literary and social forces that types the context for being Chicano. Heterotextual poetics unearths how a poetry of the pass can impact id, in readings starting from the poetry of gender and race by means of Sor Juana In?s de los angeles Cruz to that of the fragmentary, postmodern topic of Juan Felipe Herrara. Heterotextuality is the medium during which xicanismo is articulated and is derived to be a hybrid topic of textual distinction.

Sample text

For Donne, "Woman" and "America" collapse into one discoverable and nameable other. 3 And it is the nexus of "woman" and "writing," that is, "writing woman" and "woman writing," during the invention and conception of colonial America that concerns me here. I begin with the premise that European representations ofAmerican others were prefigured by European conceptions of gender. European conquest and colonization of Native America was conceived historically after the fact of the European male's subordination of the European female.

In fact, the power relations of conqueror and conquered were so different that the Gonzalo text presents a narrative of a wholly other colonial patriarchy. The traditional mythical story of Mexican genesis and the history of conquest intertwine in a narrative that climaxes in the intercourse of extremely different people, Spaniard and Indian, man and woman, and so on. After Columbus, Cortes proved the single most potent founding father of the Spanish Empire, which he did by defeating the largest New World empire.

The story of Gonzalo Guerrero does not oppose the actual history of Malinche and Cortes, it supplements, yet in doing so radically reshapes its meaning. It neither refutes their act of sexual intercourse nor denies their biologic reproduction and the production of mestizo offspring. What it does do is to overturn the semantic impact of Malinche and Cortes as the historical analogs of the mythical Adam and Eve. It does so very simply: it states that Malinche and Cortes were not, after all, first.
