Journal six: The House on Mango Street

From the House on Mango Street book, I learn that even a short story can be very good and can have lots of figure language in it. I think the strengths point in this book is that the author can use the language that make it come to life and use the sense detail very good. The favorite story that I like is the "The Three Sisters." I like that stroy because it tell that the three sistes can tell fortune to other people that live in the Mango Street. They use fortune for helping people around the Mango Street. Then Esperanza go see those sisters. Then the sisters tell her to come back to Mango Street for visit even when she move out of that street. That like saying don't forget where you were from even you live in different place. On page 105, there a part i like when one of the sister said it. That is "You will always be Esperanza. You will always be Mango Street.You can't erase what you know. You can't forget who you are."


  1. This was also my second favorite. I like the part when they tell her that no matter where you go, you will always be you and you can't erase Mango Street from your past.

  2. They gives people's hope. Thier hope are the analgesic of human's heart paint.
