Storyboard Text

  • In the vignette 'Beautiful and Cruel' Esperanza was talking about how her mother would make fun of her for having messy hair and food on her clothes. She used personification when she said, " My mother says when I get older my dusty hair will settle and my blouse will learn to stay clean" (Cinseros 88). Her mother saying this affects her character in a way that she is more insecure about herself and when she gets older she will start to pay more attention to things like her hair and her clothes.
  • In the vignette' The Fist Job' Esperanza encounters an old man that has some interest in her. In the book Imagery is used when Esperanza explains, " he grabes my face with both hands and kisses me hard on the mouth and doesn't let go" ( Cinseros 55). This will later on affect her life by being more careful around people including older men because she thought an innocent birthday kiss on the check would turn out like that.
  • In the vignette ' Linoleum Roses' Esperanza is thinking about all things beautiful and how one beautiful girl got married and isn't aloud to leave her house. Esperanza says a smile as she names things and says, " the ceiling is smooth as a wedding cake" (Cisneros 102). By saying this she compares the smooth ceiling to a cake implying it to be smooth and flat.
