  • Symbolism of the Coyote in The Tortilla Curtain by T.C. Boyle

    This is a 6 page paper discussing the symbolism as portrayed by the coyote as similar to that of the American attitude toward illegal immigrants in the United States. T.C. Boyle’s “The Tortilla Curtain” tells an effective story of illegal immigration in Southern California. While he tells the story of several characters throughout the novel he best depicts the feelings of the characters symbolically by paralleling the story of the immigrants as comparable to the coyotes which continuously intrude into the yards of the residents in the community. By using the coyote symbolism, Boyle best expresses the duality felt by the characters and by American citizens in general in that many feel that the illegal immigrants are intruding upon their “space” in the United States and arriving impoverished and hungry while at the same time everybody understands that the immigrants, and the coyotes, only cross the border in hopes for rewards of a better life because of it.

  • Mexican Film/Maria Candelaria

    A 7 page research paper/essay that discusses Emilio Fernandez’s Maria Candelaria (1943) and how this film relates to the task of addressing the legacy of colonialism within the context of Mexican history.

As such, the Mexican culture struggles to understand its fundamental nature and to express the cultural dichotomies held within this paradigm. One of the ways in which this task has been expressed is through cinema. Bibliography lists 5 sources.
