The field of Mexican American fiction has exploded since the 1990s, yet there has been relatively little critical assessment of this burgeoning area in American literature. ""Chicano Novels and the Politics of Form"" is a provocative and timely study of literary form that focuses on the fiction of five writers whose work spans a century: Maria Amparo Ruiz de Burton, Oscar Zeta Acosta, Danny Santiago, and Cecile Pineda.Drawing on the Marxist concept of reification to examine the connections between social history and narrative, Marcial Gonzalez highlights the relationship between race and class in these works and situates them as historical responses to Mexican American racial, political, and social movements since the late nineteenth century.The book sheds light on the relationship between politics and form in the novel, an issue that has long intrigued literary scholars. This timely and original study will appeal to scholars and students of American literature, ethnic studies, Latino studies, critical race theory, and Marxist literary theory.This book explores the relationship between race and class and between politics and literary form in major works of Chicano literature over the last hundred years.
