Summary:

From "one of the nation's foremost Chicano literary artists" comes a coming-of-age classic and the bestselling Chicano novel of all time that follows a young boy as he questions his faith and beliefs -- now one of PBS's "100 Great American Reads" (Denver Post). Antonio Marez is six years old when Ultima comes to stay with his family in New Mexico. She is a curandera, one who cures with herbs and magic. Under her wise wing, Tony will probe the family ties that bind and rend him, and he will discover himself in the magical secrets of the pagan past--a mythic legacy as palpable as the Catholicism of Latin America. And at each life turn there is Ultima, who delivered Tony into the world... and will nurture the birth of his soul.

Summary:

Seminar paper from the year 1999 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 1,0/A, University of Dusseldorf "Heinrich Heine" (Anglistik II, Amerikastudien), course: Latino/a Literature, 7 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: In the following paper I want to examine the traits of Native and Roman Catholic religion described in Rudolfo Anayas novel Bless me, Ultima1, which was first published by TQS Publications, Berkeley, California in 1972. It shall be revealed how the different characters in the novel deal with the Mexican pagan past and the Roman Catholic influences which affect and determine their lives. I chose to examine the most important persons separately, to stress the individuality of searching a way through the number of beliefs which are offered to each of us during our lives. Nevertheless the complexity of personal relations and their mutual influences are regarded as well; although a comprehensive analysis would also have been possible without splitting the story. According to the fact that every person is dealt with individually, the conclusion shall provide the reader with an overall picture of the relationships between the main characters in the novel. Native religion touches the region of curanderismo and witchcraft, which certainly is an interesting chapter, but has to be dealt with only as far as it is necessary. On the other hand there is Roman Catholic religion, which the Spanish under Hernan Cortes brought to America. One chapter is dedicated to The Virgin of Guadalupe, the patron saint of the Chicanos- the descendants of Indians and Spaniards. Bless me, Ultima as a work of the Mexican American author Rudolfo Anaya represents the religious opposites Mexican Americans have to deal with and it shall therefore serve as a source of examples to show the complexity of Chicano beliefs.

Summary:

Rudolfo Anaya's Bless Me, Ultima is a part of the Chicano literary canon. Like other genres of literature outside of the Western canonical tradition, Bless Me, Ultima tackles the complex identities faced by individuals who have two "homelands"--The United States, and the country of their specific heritage. The novel's protagonist, Antonio, matures throughout the bildungroman style narrative, allowing the reader to witness his development of identity. Antonio's developing autonomy, understanding of his cultural community, and understanding of the world outside of his immediate environment, are inextricably linked to his friendship with Ultima. Through his brief but significant time spent with her, Antonio realizes the importance of spirituality, as he sees how it is exercised in his mentor's life. My thesis argues that spirituality is Anaya's solution to the "borderlands," dichotomies, labels, categorizing, and other problematic ways that we try to understand others inside and outside of our own cultural environments. Anaya posits spirituality as a means for the Chicana/o community, and all other communities for that matter, to appreciate their native culture, yet simultaneously embrace a concept of the world through a non-culturally specific lens. Through her commitment to live a spiritually grounded life, Ultima exemplifies a sincere respect and adoration for her community, God, those she interacts with, nature, and essentially, the universe. This mentality and outlook on life is what I argue to be both her "blessing" on Antonio and Anaya's "blessing" on his readers.
