Title: Mestizaje americano: Gloria Anzaldúa autrice di "Borderlands/La frontera"
Authors: Agressi, Ada
Issue Date: 2007
Publisher: Padova, Studio Editoriale Gordini
Abstract: This essay intends to explore the mestizo identity through the perspective of so called "Third World Women of Color" writers whose works are included in two anthologies edited by Gloria Anzaldúa. The analysis starts by outlining the concept of "Borderlands/Frontera" which is especially crucial for Cchicano people who were born in the border conflict between two nations, becoming the symbol of contradictions that coalesce and can coexist in the tolerance for ambiguity. The discourse opens up to the exploration of meaning in the work of mestiza writers who must struggle aganist gender and race discriminations to have their creativity validated, and of the need for these writers to always relate of/to the social community they pertain to, becoming a bridge between the known and the unknown, the local and the universal, the inside and the outside world of their conscience.
