Never-ending Dreams

Never-ending Dreams

In The House on Mango Street, by Sandra Cisneros,
Esperanza?s dreams and desires are not prevented despite her
poverty. The vignettes ?The House on Mango Street?, ?My
Name? and ?Mango Says Goodbye Sometimes? best show the
position she is in and the way she deals with all of the
experiences that come her way. Poverty is a set back for
Esperanza, but it will not hold her back from obtaining her
ultimate dreams.
It was obvious to everyone that Esperanza was poor, ?You
live there (5). The deteriorated tiny house on Mango Street
belonged to Esperanza. She lived in the poor part of her
neighborhood. She couldn?t wait to get out of it. The role
models in her vicinity were just as bad too. All of
Esperanza?s role models were women. All of the women she
looked up to were unhappy. They were all stuck in a place
they didn?t want to be, stuck behind ?a window.? These lives
did not hold a fortunate future for Esperanza. She didn?t
see any women with a good life, but she was still determined
to get somewhere on her own, ?I have inherited her name, but
I don?t want to inherit her place by the window? (11).
Esperanza received her grandmother?s name. Her grandmother
was a strong lady, but her life ended when
