Description

This book explains the fundamentals of semiotic theory and applies it to more than twenty works by Latin American and Mexican American authors in a variety of genres and across a span of more than five hundred years, from pre-Hispanic times to the late twentieth century. Semiotics, language and linguistic symbols, have been successfully used to analyze social and cultural constructs of power and identity for many years. However no one has previously applied these signs to Latin American and Chicano literature from pre-Hispanic times to the late twentieth century. The analysis during this timeframe and in these fields is a fertile means for investigating social interactions, cultural anomalies, and political situations.
