Summary

Drama. Chicano/a Studies. Queer Studies. THE HUNGRY WOMAN contains two plays by internationally recognized playwright Cherrie L. Moraga: THE HUNGRY WOMAN: A MEXICAN MEDEA and HEART OF THE EARTH: A POPUL VUH STORY. Both plays express Moraga's deep connection to myth, to the cultural question of Aztlan, and to Chicano/a politics as further shaped by feminist understanding and queer identity. They also restate and reinterpret ancient stories (Medea, La Llorona, the Maya legend of Popul Vuh, and others) for modern theatre in our time. In the forward to this edition, Moraga speaks of the forces that moved her to write these plays, while in the afterword critic Irma Mayorga examines the politics of myth and location in the two plays.
