Storyboard Text

  • Rafaela who drinks coconut and papaya juice on Tuesday's
  • No speak English
  • Four skinny trees
  • Rafaela is forced to stay in the house because her husband says she is too pretty to go out. Then she asks Esperanza and Nenny to go buy her juice, but wishes her drinks were sweeter, "Not bitter like an empty room, but sweet sweet like the island," (Cisneros 80). This is a simile used by the author to describe how she wants her drinks to be sweeter. She also uses a simile to describe how Rafaela is not happy and wants to be at a place like an island.
  • Mamacita is coming to the U.S from Mexico and is living with her husband. She arrives in a taxi and Esperanza stops and stares. "The taxi door opened like a waitor's arm,"(Cisneros 76). This is a simile used by the author. This vignette ties to my theme because in the remaining part of the vignette it shows how Mamacita does not like where she is living and wants to go back to her home.
  • In this vignette it tells how Esperanza and her friends are like 4 skinny trees."Four skinny trees with skinny necks and pointy elbows like mine," (Cisneros 74). This is a meaphor used by the author to show how these girls don't fit in and want to be at a home where they like to live and enjoy themselves.
