Contreras bargains unique views on writers starting from Alurista and Gloria Anzaldúa to Lorna Dee Cervantes and Alma Luz Villanueva, successfully marking the invocation of a Chicano indigeneity whose foundations and formulations might be associated with U.S. and British modernist writing.By highlighting intertextualities akin to these among Anzaldúa and D. H. Lawrence, Contreras reviews the resilience of primitivism within the Mexican borderlands. She questions verified cultural views on "the native," which sarcastically problem and reaffirm racialized representations of Indians within the Americas. In doing so, Blood strains brings a brand new figuring out to the contradictory and richly textured literary dating that hyperlinks the tasks of eu modernism and Anglo-American authors, at the one hand, and the imaginary of the post-revolutionary Mexican country and Chicano/a writers, at the different hand.
