Abstract only
Log-in for full text

This chapter discusses the unity and spatial relations found in the Love Medicine tetralogy and the Tales of Burning Love, identifying the metaphors used in the novels and explaining how the specific post-contact condition of Native – especially mixed blood – life in the United States is addressed. It also examines the deconstructive work of Erdrich's texts during the early stages of Love Medicine; Leslie Silko's review of Erdrich's prose style; the imagery of culture, syncretism and Catholicism in the novels; the fluidity of Erdrich's prose; and the fundamental themes of her early work.
