The role of Esperanza’s family is being annoying, yet supportive to her. She refuses that she doesn’t belong in that family, even though she deeply knows she does and loves them for it. Esperanza thinks her parents have too much hope, hates going to her Aunt’s apartment, her great-grandmother is a good kind of wild, her brothers are immature because of the whole “cooties” rule, and that she is a balloon tied to anchor when being with Nenny. Esperanza thinks Nenny is a drag because on page three, she says,” Nenny is too young to be my friend. She's just my sister and that was not my fault.
Just as Esperanza expresses her distaste for her shabby new house in the vignette “House on Mango Street”, she also exhibits a strong desire for her own home, stating “I knew then I had to have a house. A real house. One I could point to” (Cisneros 5). Esperanza’s dream of owning her own house, derived from her dissatisfaction with the impoverished nature of the house on Mango Street, illustrates that Esperanza’s dreams originate from her poverty.

In Albee’s eyes, many factors besides love can bring a child to bear, and the pressures which society creates to bear children can cause individuals to buckle. This pressure, as well as the other relationship problems found in the marriages of Nick and Honey and George and Martha, clearly demonstrate the failures of the American

In most class meetings, class disparity was not a topic of discussion and Hooks never discussed how she began to feel a sense of guilt when she thought about the brown skin Filipina women who got paid to clean the college living areas or how she tried to make an effort to send money home to help her mother out. Even though Hooks knew she would be receiving a good education she also knew she had the option to rebel at any
