The House on Mango Street

By Sandra Cisneros (9)

Show/Hide Info

Sandra Cisneros’ critically acclaimed masterpiece, The House on Mango Street, is an enchantingly simple, yet thematically complex, compilation of vignettes. Esperanza Cordero lives on Mango Street, a Latino dominated neighborhood that suffers the societal stigma of abject poverty and crushed dreams. The lives of several neighbors are told through Esperanza’s eyes, and the young girl allows the readers a detailed and vivid peek into the dreams and reality of several characters. We meet Sally, a flirt who suffers the wrath of her father on a regular basis; Rafaela, who is forced into idle seclusion by an overbearing husband; and Rosa, who has ceded the fates of her children to societal blows. Esperanza delivers these intimate glances with poise, written with a hauntingly simple poetic pen, and the young girl finds the beauty inherent in Mango Street, yet dreams of moving on and beyond. The wonderful lack of structure in The House on Mango Street directly correlates to how uniquely Cisneros is able to convey Esperanza’s perceptive observations, regarding women’s equality, poverty, and the power of hope, with affective meaning, and as such, Cisneros renders a beautiful and timeless novel.
