Bodies, borders, and letters: Gloria anzaldúa's “speaking in tongues: A letter to 3rd world women writers”
Southern Communication Journal
Anzaldúa argues that all writing should be connected and personalized like letters. Both the content and the form of Anzaldúa's letter make it a text worthy of attention as well as a text suitable for challenging Euro‐Americans to rethink their approach to texts by people of color. This paper argues that a letter is a distinct rhetorical form that enables an author to suspend the non‐addressed audience in an a‐critical position, and that an alternative approach to rhetoric is to understand communication as embodied. © 1996 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
