Product description

About the Author

Gloria Anzaldua was a Chicana-tejana-lesbian-feminist poet, theorist, and fiction writer from south Texas. She was the editor of the critical anthology MAKING FACE, MAKING SOUL/HACIENDO CARAS: CREATIVE AND CRITICAL PERSPECTIVES BY FEMINISTS OF COLOR (Aunt Lute Books, 1990), co-editor of This Bridge Called My Back: Writings by Radical Women of Color, and winner of the Before Columbus Foundation American Book Award. She taught creative writing, Chicano studies, and feminist studies at University of Texas, San Francisco State University, Vermont College of Norwich University, and University of California Santa Cruz. Anzaldua passed away in 2004 and was honored around the world for shedding visionary light on the Chicana experience by receiving the National Association for Chicano Studies Scholar Award in 2005. Gloria was also posthumously awarded her doctoral degree in literature from the University of California, Santa Cruz. A number of scholarships and book awards, including the Anzaldua Scholar Activist Award and the Gloria E. Anzaldua Award for Independent Scholars, are awarded in her name every year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful read, meaningful read 4 July 2016
By Rebecca Cooke - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This product was bought for, and reviewed by, Soul Cooke.

I studying this book in one of my college classes and I fell in love with it. It's so emotional, intense, and angry. It's visceral and real. I think everyone who wants to better themselves and combat the racism in our society and in themselves should read this book and learn about Anzaldua's life. Any marginalized person is going to connect with something in the text, and anyone of privilege is going to gain some new perspective. Since, in someway, we are all marginalized and privileged it means there is so, so much to learn.

The text itself is also incredibly beautiful and evocative. It is not always a joy to read, no, sometimes it's too painful for that. But it is a powerful read, a meaningful read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Required reading for everyone interested in race/gender/culture 2 Mar. 2013
By El Osophilosophico - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I cannot recommend this work enough. It is very rare that you come across a book that will shake the very foundations of the way that you see the world. This book has done that for me. It is at once, life affirming, challenging, and encouraging. Read it and soak it in. I had to put it down several times to just let her ideas wash over me. Buy it, read it, and tell your friends about it.
5.0 out of 5 stars I don't know why it's taken me so long to read this book 24 Mar. 2016
By Ally J - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book changed my life. I think Anzaldua should be assigned reading for any Hispanic populated area because it invites one into the realm of academia with a language that speaks to our culture and gives understanding to the borders that comprise our selves. She creates a language that is not limited to the mixed nature of hybridity or "mestiza" of race, but any group that finds themselves at the borders of 2 or more races, classes, sexes, genders...and so on.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great book to own! 13 Jan. 2017
By DTG - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed the historical aspect of the work and her command of language(s). Her descriptions of the "between worlds" (borderlands) is outstanding! Her philosophy regarding people, gender, religion, and also, specific to people of color is a breath of fresh air, when considering the punitive and puritan attitudes of so many people today.
