Writing Migrations: Transnational Readings of Rosario Ferré and Víctor Hernández Cruz

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This article examines two Puerto Rican literary writers who have written in English on the island: Rosario Ferré and Víctor Hernández Cruz. It argues that this fact is making Puerto Rican literatures on the island and on the mainland less clearly differentiated, while it also represents a challenge to the traditional homologies between the Puerto Rican literary canon and the Spanish language. The article mostly examines the different ideologies as well as social, racial, and class locations that fuel the English writings of both authors.
