242 Words1 Page
The House on Mango Street, written by Sandra Cisneros, incorporates many literary devices that assist the book. Cisneros writes with irony and imagery, which affect the meaning in her writing. She uses dramatic irony every so often in the book, for example in “What Sally Says” she writes, “her father, whose eyes were little from crying, knocked on the door and said please come back, this is the last time. And she said Daddy went and home” (Cisneros 93). Earlier, Sally’s father had beaten her for talking to a boy. The dramatic irony is the part where she goes back home after her father tells here that was the last time. Furthermore, her father as expected does beat her again. The meaning of this story is that Sally is easily controlled and manipulated
