I hate our house. I am buying a bigger house when im older.
"The canteen ! Even the name sounds important.And these kids at lunch time go there because their mothers arent home or home is too far away to get to.My home isnt far but its not close either."
The canteen is not a special! Everyone here is a bad person.
"Keep away from him she says.He is full of danger.Benny and blanca own the corner store. Two raggedy girls live across the street."
Hey want to be our friend?
I knew then I had to have a house. A real house. One I could point to. But this isnt. The house on mango street isnt it.
This is a better house than my old house.
This illustrates how esperanza felt eating in the canteen.She thought eating there would make her special but it didnt. THis is man vs society.
This illustrates Esperanza becoming friends with Rachel and Lucy.Cathy say not to become friends with them but Esperanza ignores her and becomes friends with them. This shows man vs man. This is external conflict.
This illustrates man vs self.Esperanza hates he own house and want to get a better house when she is older. This is internal conflict.
