Esperanza in The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros
In “The House on Mango Street” by Sandra Cisneros Esperanza stated: “I’m going to Hell, and I probably deserve it.” As Esperanza said this, it sounded very awful of her to say that about himself. In this theme Sentence in Chapter 23 “Born Bad” you could tell already that it was one of the days when Esperanza’s life was troubled.
“My mother says I was born on a bad date and she will pray for me” is another instance of how difficult life is for Esperanza. “Because of what we did to Aunt Lope” (Rachel, Lucy) “The day we played the game, we didn’t really know she was going to pass away. “We pretended, with heads thrown back, arms down helplessly, and dangling as if we were dead.” Esperanza knew her aunt Guadalupe was ill because she said: “I knew she had a disease that would not go away.” These are just a couple of examples of how challenging Esperanza’s life is because she has to live with the wrong she did to her aunt as she was dying hopelessly.
However, Esperanza has experienced “moments of happiness” Esperanza said: “Hooray! Today we are Cinderella because our shoes fit the same” This quote showcases a tiny amount of the happiness that Esteranza demonstrated as she said “Hooray”. You can imagine her excitement in her voice. This chapter is mostly about how Esperanza got the comfortable down boots that she loved for a few minutes.
