"We didn't always live on Mango Street. Before that we lived on Loomis on the third floor, and before that we lived on Keeler. Before Keeler it was Paulina. But what I remember most is moving a lot". (pg. 3)
Have you ever wondered if a author based the story on his or her own life. Based on two quotes that you can find in the first and last vignettes in The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros you can see that it may actually be true.
I know that Sandra claims that it is not completely based on her past life it still is a question that makes you think if there is more to the question than the author has answered. Maybe this was her plan to make people come to conclusions and think about the overall question more.
Add to the fact that the book's chapters, or rather vignettes focus on key moments with no knowledge of how much time has passed between each of those vignettes.
Finally, another possibility is the fact that the story begins in the view of the main character, Esperanza, but it then ends in the view of the author. But overall these could all just be something that ties into an even bigger question than this one.
"We didn't always live on Mango Street. Before that we lived on Loomis on the third floor, and before that we lived on Keeler. Before Keeler it was Paulina, but what I remember most in Mango Street, sad red house, the house I belong but do not belong to". (pg. 109 &110)
