The scar on the face of Sage has a deeper meaning than it just being a permanent mark. When describing her scar, she states, “It isn’t a scar to me, really. It’s a map of where my life went wrong” (10). This scar symbolizes guilt, like a stamp to remind her of what happened in the past. This permanent mark on her face does not let her move on because of the guilt she feels about the accident.
My response essay will come from the essay who a girl was involved called Sandra Cisneros, the daughter of a Mexico-American mother and a Mexico father. A daughter whose father didn’t believe in whatever she did. No matter how Sandra tried her best to impress her father, Sandra’s father didn’t believe her because of the tradition that lasted for years that, girls can’t do stuff that will catch an eye from the society. Anna was not allowed to play with her brothers in public, and also, not only she wasn’t allowed to go to school, but also, she wasn’t allowed to expand her talent of drawing. It’s the same with my relatives from my mother’s side.
Sasha is a Caucasian who is born in the upper middle class and is considered to be living in the more wealthy neighborhood of Oakland compared to Richard. The book gives background information of these two characters and how they ended up meeting and causing this accident. Greendale review talks about how the story helps “raise awareness about the unprecedented level of violence inflicted on transgender people.” This story is set to show the need for representation of the transgender people. The scene in which the reviewer uses to describe the mistreatment of the agender community was the scene in which Richard sees Sasha sitting on the bus.
Through the characterization of Esperanza and Sally, Sandra Cisneros portrays the theme of a vicious cycle of economic disadvantages that lead to desperation. Esperanza went through many economic disadvantages which lead her to her current desperation. Firstly, the mortification that her house caused her led her to being pessimistic. “You live there? The way she said it made me feel like nothing.
In the book, Sara paints a vivid description of conditions with living in poverty. The struggle of working was described by the sister Bessie, and the struggle of being true and being “American” was felts and described by all. Each sister seems to reach solace while living in America. However the angle or path they try to take towards Americanization, they seem to feel unfulfilled. Whether it is Bessie who lives comfortably in her marriage, or Sara who lives comfortably with her independence.
I really disliked how her mom was treating Sonita. She was treating her as a selling product. How could she sell her own daughter in return for money! And she is saying it’s traditions when it’s actually because she have a financial problem and because she never thought about her daughter's future. Two scenes prove that her mom only thinks about money when the director gave her $2000 and when Sonita returns back to Afghanistan and gave her mom a golden earrings, she forget about the
She used all of her courage to advocate for Fania, who was not daring enough to do so herself. This proves that Sara was ruthlessly protective of her family because she was willing to break rules to defend her sister. Similar to Sara, I feel the need to protect my family, especially my sister. Like Fania, my sister does not always advocate for herself because she has fear. I can not help but speak up for my sister when she is being disrespected, just like Sara.
Teenagers have always had a lot to say and all have their own unique perspective of the world. Esperanza, the main character of Sandra Cisneros's The House on Mango Street, expresses many of her thoughts using figurative language. She lives following her Latino heritage, but still has her own interesting points. Cisneros uses the elements of personification, hyperboles, and similes to properly describe Esperanza’s perspective of her life. The use of personification shows the deeper view and meaning of things Esperanza senses in her life.
She 's a major slut. I don 't know from experience or anything.” (The Craft, 1996) and once Nancy gets wind of this encounter, she reaches out to Sarah and begins to include her in the activities of the coven. Why? Nancy may have felt sorry for Sarah, as her impressionability as the new girl was beginning to drag her down a slut-shaming rabbit hole (Which Sarah still falls down regardless), but more a more likely cause for Nancy’s sudden change of attitude was because she was jealous of Sarah getting the attention of Chris, stating that “He comes on to anything with tits, Sarah” (The Craft, 1996). This idea is reinforced later on in the movie when Nancy taunts Sarah about allegedly having sex with Chris, and once Nancy hears that Chris nearly raped Sarah, she loses it.
The essay “Only Daughter”, written by Sandra Cisneros is centered on the main idea that being an only daughter of seven sons “explains everything” of her life. Cisneros’ essay is structured to emphasize the emotional impact of surpassing socially excepted gender roles in a conservative Mexican family. Her fathers view on college is for Cisneros to successfully acquire a husband but her own view is to become an independent writer. Feeling discriminated because of her feminine qualities and unappreciated by her male family members she finds herself always wanting to impress her father with her writings. Feminism becomes a huge theme throughout this essay and conveys an only daughter of a Mexican-American family of nine exposed to the unequal
