Christopher Stanley 4 November 2007 English 114 Professor Hicks Annotated Bibliography 1. Ethnic Authenticity, Class, and Autobiography: The Case of Hunger of Memory This article written by Henry Staten explains Richard Rodriguez’s autobiography, Hunger of Memory , in relation to three different ideas, ethnic authenticity, class, and autobiography. Originally I found some difficulty related this source and its opinions to Wideman’s autobiography because Rodriguez talks so much about his Mexican culture and therefore he basis of Staten’s opinions are based on the culture, not the class. But I found many good points in his article strictly on class beginning on p. 108. This part starts begins with an account of Rodriguez “At his rich friends’ house he notices the “vast polished dining room table” and the ‘small silver bell’ the mother rings to call a servant, but he also observes that the servant is a black woman, and on his way out notices his own ‘dark self’ in a hallway mirror (123)” (Staten 108). Staten, Henry. "Ethnic Authenticity, Class, and Autobiography: The Case of Hunger of Memory."
