Gil´s Furniture Bought & Sold
Boys & Girl
Help! I am tied to an anchor
No Speak English
In the book ¨The House On Mango Street¨ there are a lot of ties with culture and gender roles. In this picture there is a scene with some bugs, but in the chapter Gils Furniture Bought and Sold Esperanza exclaims, ¨A million moths all over the dusty furniture¨(Cisneros 20). This is an example of a hyperbole, because she exaggerated how many moths there were
In the chapter ¨Boys & Girls¨ they talk about their culture and how gender roles are in the culture. Esperanza feels like she is ¨A red balloon tied to an anchor¨(Cisneros 9). This is an example of a metaphor. It is comparing, but not using like or as. Esperanza feels tied to her culture and to the gender roles, she may not like them but she feels obligated to follow the rules of her culture.
In this chapter ¨No Speak English¨ she describes Esperanza´s house, she says,¨Home is a house in a photograph, a pink house, as hollyhocks with lots of startled light¨(Cisneros 77). This is an example of a simile, she is comparing her house using the words like or as. This citation is describing her house. She seems to talk about the places she lived a lot.
