Title: Whose house is it anyway? : architects of the 'house' leitmotif in the literature from Mexican America
Author: Rodríguez, Rodrigo Joseph
Abstract: The literature written and being spoken by writers of Mexican origin in the United States continues to reformulate the notion of borders as well as subjects and forms within and beyond the house leitmotif. Writings by Sandra Cisneros, Pat Mora, and Tomás Rivera construct public and private spaces that merit validation in historical, literary, and cultural contexts. As architects, Chicana and Chicano writers challenge the nationalist canon and house.
