Sandra Cisneros uses stories to illustrate the troubles that young adolescents face when dealing with issues of their own ethnicity. The stories she tells are arranged in a way that the language makes the reader feel disjointed, much like the character, Esperenza feels throughout the story. She uses language to encourage the reader to feel a sense of empathy for the characters.

I guess my feminism and my race are the same thing to me. They’re tied in one to another, and I don’t feel an alliance or an allegiance with upper-class white women. I don’t. I can listen to them and on some level as a human being I can feel great compassion and friendships; but they have to move from their territory to mine, because I know their world. But they don’t know mine.  Sandra Cisneros, Chicana Feminist Thought
