Para Teresa 1 Ines Hernandez Ines Hernandez was born in Texas in 1947. An assistant professor of English and Chicano studies at the University of Texas in Austin, Hernan dez edited Hembra, published by the Center for Mexican-American Studies at the University of Texas al Austin. In the poem which follows, from Hernandez's book Con Razon, Corazon: Poetry (1977), the speaker reflects on an elementary school con frontation with a fellow Chicana. Because I accept no limitations or rules regarding poetry, I am able t experiment with language, dialects, sounds, rhythm to an extent that I cannot in formal writing. I believe my poetry mirrors an awareness of my- self as an individual and as a member of a collective voice (of which the Chicano-Chicana voice Is only a part) which is seeking a more humanistic society.
