📙 Ritual Structures in Chicana Fiction by Helane Androne (auth.) — free epub


This book argues for the necessary and further examination of the sacred as it is ritualized within Chicana fiction. It suggests that religious, spiritual, linguistic and political symbolisms reveal rites that structure narrative performances of coping with and healing from trauma.
