Reading the Neighborhood: Community as Text in The House on Mango Street
“To read Patrocinio Schweickart’s “Toward a Feminist Theory of Reading” along with Sandra Cisnero’s The House on Mango Street is to extend “text” to community. For example, Esperanza, the narrator, can “read” the neighborhood in a manner similar to Schweickart’s reader reading a literary text. Esperanza and some other women in the book took control of their experience, while others were manipulated by traditional neighborhood values. This paper is an exploration of extending the notion of text to community, specifically the Mango Street neighborhood that Esperanza “reads” and interprets.”
