Our Good Day
Cathy Queen of Cats
In the vignette Laughter Esperanza talks about how her and Nenny don´t look like sisters. Then, she explains how even though her and Nenny don´t look like sisters, they are more alike than you would know. For example, she says their laughter is ¨... All of a sudden and surprised like a pile of dishes breaking¨ (Cisneros 17). The figurative language in my citation is a similie and it means that Esperanza and Nenny's laughter is very loud, like falling dishes would sound, and it kind of catches you off guard. Also, from reading back my little summary, you can infer that Nenny and Esperanza's laughter is similar.
In the vignette Our Good Day Esperanza pays Lucy and Rachel to be her friends. With the money, Lucy and Rachel buy a bike for all of them to ride on. As all the girls are riding the bike, Esperanza passes her house and describes it as "... Sad and red and crumbly in places" (Cisneros 16). This figurative language is a personification and it means that to Esperanza, her house looks sad because it is just all beaten up and it doesn't look good to her. This vignette fits with the my theme because it has a lot of friendship included in it with Lucy and Rachel.
In the vignette Cathy Queen of Cats Eperanza's neighborhood has a lady named Cathy who has a lot of cats. Esperanza explains how "Cathy who is queen of cats has cats and cats and cats. Baby cats, big cats, skinny cats, sick cats. Cats asleep like little doughnuts (Cisneros 13). The figurative language in this citation is a similie and it means that some cats in Cathy's house curl up to look like doughnuts. This vignette fits with my theme because Cathy is in Esperanza's neighborhood.
