Louis Owens (1948–2002) achieved worldwide recognition with his humorous and fearless novels that explored themes close to Owens’s own upbringing as a mixed-blood Choctaw, Cherokee, and Irish-American. His critical works were equally substantive. Readers of his criticism find his work challenging, and casual readers find his fiction highly enjoyable—a remarkable combination that speaks well of Owens’s intellectual and creative abilities. In a new collection of essays, Louis Owens: Literary Reflections on His Life and Work, editor Jacquelyn Kilpatrick and eleven other contributors examine Owens’s fiction and nonfiction from widely varying viewpoints to address issues such as identity, place, literary theory, trickster motifs, and the environment. This text aids the reader in understanding the theories Owens articulated and how he followed those theories in his own writing. Also included is the last interview Owens gave, appearing in print for the first time, which provides insights into this complex man’s personal life.

Politics And Aesthetics In Contemporary Native American Literature

Over the last twenty years, Native American literary studies has taken a sharp political turn. In this book, Matthew Herman provides the historical framework for this shift and examines the key moments in the movement away from cultural analyses toward more politically inflected and motivated perspectives. He highlights such notable cases as the prevailing readings of the popular within Native American writing; the Silko-Erdrich controversy; the ongoing debate over the comparative value of nationalism versus cosmopolitanism within Native American literature and politics; and the status of native nationalism in relation to recent critiques of the nation coming from postmodernism, postcolonialism, and subaltern studies. Herman concludes that the central problematic defining the last two decades of Native American literary studies has involved the emergence in theory of anti-colonial nationalism, its variants, and its contradictions. This study will be a necessary addition for students and scholars of Native American Studies as well as 20th-century literature.

Toward A Native American Critical Theory

"Unlike Western interpretations of Native American literatures and cultures in which external critical methodologies are imposed on Native texts, ultimately silencing the primary voices of the texts themselves, Pulitano's work examines critical material generated from within the Native contexts to propose a different approach to Native literature. Pulitano argues that the distinctiveness of Native American critical theory can be found in its aggressive blending and reimagining of oral tradition and Native epistemologies on the written page - a powerful, complex mediation that can stand on its own yet effectively subsume and transform non-Native critical theoretical strategies."--BOOK JACKET.

Faces in the Moon is the story of three generations of Cherokee women, as viewed by the youngest, Lucie, a woman who has been able to use education and her imagination to escape the confines of her rootless, impoverished upbringing. When her mother’s illness summons her back to Oklahoma, Lucie finds herself confronted with the legacy of a childhood she has worked hard to separate from her adult self. Her mother, Gracie, and her maternal aunt, Auney, are members of the Cherokees’ "lost generation," women who rejected the traditional rural ways in search of a more glamorous life as autonomous working women.

All the Women in My Family Sing tells the sometimes raw, always illumining stories of women of color in today's political climate. Sixty-eight authors in total--African American, Asian American, Chicana, Native American, Cameroonian, South African, British and LGBTQI--these voices broaden cross-cultural understanding and contribute to building bridges to understanding how very alike we are in the daily experiences of life. No other anthology offers the wide spectrum of stories about cultural identity, migration, sexuality, illness, racism and generosity from such illustrious voices, includingAmerica Ferrera on her powerful experience at the Women's March in Washington, D.C. on January 21, 2017;Natalie Baszile on returning to Louisiana to research Queen Sugar and finding the "painful truths" her father experienced in the "belly of segregation;"Porochista Khakpour on flying across America under the Muslim travel ban; andLalita Tademy on her transition from top executive at Sun Microsystems to NY Times bestselling author. In other essays, a woman writes from prison about widows incarcerated for cashing their husbands' retirement checks. A young mother writes of suffering hundreds of strokes and a heart attack while giving birth. An art historian argues why Carmen Lomas Garza is as important as Norman Rockwell to our conception of what constitutes the American tableau. An escapee from the Cambodian Killing Fields writes about her life in America after losing 37 family members. A daughter writes about her father growing up in Louisiana having the soles of his feet set on fire as a joke.
