This paper discusses the novel, "The House on Mango Street", which is a beautiful story about a young girl, Esperanza Cordero, coming of age and coming to terms with her cultural heritage, sexuality, and economic circumstances.

From the Paper:

"Cisneros' novel is told through the eyes of Esperanza in a series of vignettes as she recalls her life on Mango Street in Chicago's Latino section of town. Although, she and her family lived in many houses through the years, before and after, it is the house on Mango Street that holds the greatest memories of family unity and self-empowerment for Esperanza. It is in this house on Mango Street that she becomes aware of the importance of family heritage and comes to terms with growing up female."
