Rituals of Movement in the Writing of Judith Ortiz Cofer is the first book-length collection of scholarship on the writing of Judith Ortiz Cofer and establishes her as an important contemporary American author. Ten analytical essays and four interviews explore the complexity and originality of her work and her central themes of Puerto Rican identity, cross-cultural experience, and the female perspective in a shifting multicultural world. This collection discusses almost all of Ortiz Cofer s writing, including her most popular and influential works such as Silent Dancing, The Latin Deli, and A Love Song Written in Spanish. This book is organized into sections that highlight her achievements in prose, poetry, and the mixed-genre writing that is a major innovative contribution to American letters.
