Storyboard Text

  • Marin
  • The Woman Who Had So Many Children That She Didn't Know What To Do
  • Those Who Don't
  • In the story, House on Mango Street, Esperanza talks about how her neighbor, Marin, says that "she's waiting for her star to fall," (Cisneros 27). Marin is waiting for her life to change and waiting for her life to change and she'll never give up.
  • In the vingette, There Was and Old Woman Who Had So Many Children, Esperanza talks about the day that "Angel Vargas learned to fly and dropped from the sky like a sugar donut," (Cisneros 30). This could imply that his mother might've not paid him any attention when he attempted and succeeded in commiting suicide.
  • In this vingette, Those Who Don't, Esperanza talks about how people go down their street and judge them. They stay strong through the judging though, they are "brown all around, we are safe," (Cisneros 28). This could be referring to their skin color, but it could also be referring to the unity they have made as neighbors and family.
