The metaphysics of holistic transformation through spiritual-erotic narratives in Gloria E. Anzaldúa's "She Ate Horses"
MetadataShow full item record
My thesis specifically interweaves spirituality with the erotic to analyze Gloria E. Anzaldúa's short fiction story "She Ate Horses." I argue that by analyzing "She Ate Horses" through a spiritual and erotic lens and with a spiritual-activist method, we can understand how Anzaldúa's vision of transformation was deeply rooted in an intimate awareness of the self where spiritual and erotic energies served as guides in our path. Through close analysis of the text, I also argue that Anzaldúa develops a holistic aesthetic in the story's structure, in order to convey how Prieta processes her emotions, reflections, and interactions.
