Rafaela Who Drinks Coconut and Papaya Juice on Tuesdays
I want long hair like Rapunzel.
In No Speak English the figurative language piece is a simile. " A foot as soft as a rabbits ear" (Cisneros 76). This means that her feet are really soft like a rabbits ear because rabbits have really soft fur which is on their ears.
In Rafael who Drinks Papaya Juice on Tuesdays is about her thinking about going outside but her husband won't let her because he thinks he's too beautiful. " Rafaela leans out the window and leans on her elbow and dreams her hair like Rapunzel"(Cisneros 79). This is an example of an allusion because the author is referencing Rapunzel.
In Sally, Esperanza is describing Sally's beauty. "Sally is the girl with eyes like Egypt and nylons the color of smoke"(Cisneros 81). This is an example of a simile because the author is comparing smoke with her nylons because there so black and comparing her eyes with Egypt or Cleopatra which is saying that her eyes are pretty.
