This paper examines the concept of mestiza consciousness and its manifestation in Gloria Anzaldua`s Borderlands/La Frontera: The New Mestiza. The text is more famous for its theoretical contribution, especially the model of subjectivity as intersubjectivity propounded by the author. Anzaldua emphasizes the human capability of growth, of moving beyond established identities. She visualizes this growth as an expansion, a (r)evolution through which perception is deepened and awareness widened. This paper focuses on how mestiza consciousness is embodied in the text of Borderlands. The prose section of Borderlands records the writer`s own (r)evolutionary growth, while the poetry section pushes willing readers into a state of psychic unrest. It is in this context that the second section of Borderlands, the poems, gains an unexpected weight. Her poems, more than her prose, experiment with various kinds of embodied experience. More importantly, they are poetic embodiments of mestiza consciousness, especially challenging in their linguistic materiality. By reading one exemplary poem "Letting Go," this paper demonstrates the material-figurative quality of Anzaldua`s poems and their ability to break down subject-object duality. The poems. therefore, preserve the real challenge raised by Borderlands, the difficult work of confronting something radically different.
