Only you, only you can you are unique (Atwood 22-24)”. The literary device, tone, is significant in this poem because in a manipulating tone, the Siren lures the men to the island pleading for help.

In the following excerpt, Esperanza describes how Sally’s father beats her. “He hit her with his hands just like a dog, she said, like if I was an animal” (Cisneros 92).
