The bestselling coming-of-age classic, acclaimed by critics, beloved by readers of all ages, taught in schools and universities alike, and translated around the world—from the winner of the 2019 PEN/Nabokov Award for Achievement in International Literature. The House on Mango Street is the remarkable story of Esperanza Cordero, a young Latina girl growing up in Chicago, inventing for herself who and what she will become. Told in a series of vignettes-sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes deeply joyous-Sandra Cisneros' masterpiece is a classic story of childhood and self-discovery. Few other books in our time have touched so many readers.

Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2, University of Kassel (Fachbereich Sprachwissenschaften), course: The Power of Reading Books, 13 entries in the bibliography, language: English, comment:, abstract: Reading as an intellectual competence opens the way to explore culture and knowledge, to participate in cultural life and to enjoy literature. Culture and knowledge are parts of our education and are central to our ability to think critically on any topic. Studying literature plays a central role in developing these skills. According to Hesse (2002, p.50f.), there are some elementary goals of literacy teaching, such as (1) focussing on specific parts of the text, (2) the use of methods which support an active and productive reading behaviour, (3) a change of intensive and extensive phases of reading and (4) the relation to students' interests. Literature studies offer students opportunities to work on carefully chosen texts provided by the teacher. Results from the PISA studies of 15-year-old poor readers in Germany illustrate the importance of finding adequate literature for the EFL classroom. In our term paper, we want to examine how far Sandra Cisneros' The House on Mango Street is relevant for the EFL class. The questions which chances and opportunities the novel bears and for which purpose its plot is useful to discuss different topics are in the centre of interest. Therefore, the term paper shows didactical and methodological aspects, i.e. how the book relates to the curriculum as well as to the students' lives, which learning strategies and social forms can be applied. Therefore, we have provided several tasks to be used in the EFL class which all bear a differentiated analysis. On the one hand, the tasks have a tendency towards creating a relationship between the text and its reader, on the other hand, they enlarge students' abilities to use various learning strategies and methods

Seminar paper from the year 2018 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 1.0, University of Potsdam, course: Chicana Life Writing, language: English, abstract: The title of the book "The House on Mango Street" raises expectations and creates questions of its content and intent. Will it be the story of a family in the south, where Mangos grow? Will we meet different characters who inhabit the same house one after another? Or will the house be one-of-its-kind on this special street? In actuality, Sandra Cisneros tells the story of a girl, Esperanza, who lives in a house, set on Mango Street, in a fictional part of Chicago. The 44 vignettes have their roots in stories Cisneros heard, saw, or experienced in real life. The singular in the title should therefore be a plural, because a great number of houses feature in the book. Esperanza visits family and friends while searching for her own future. The House on Mango Street is a growing-up story, yet buildings do not grow into anything. They are falling into disrepair more often than not. So why does a house feature so prominently in the title of a book on growing up? I will argue, that the house in this book can be read as the female body in a patriarchal society. Its immobile state an accusation in the face of a need for change. In 1984 Sandra Cisneros published The House on Mango Street and became one of the first widely read writers of the Chicana movement. A movement that filled the void left for women of Mexican heritage by the U.S. feminist movement on the one hand, and the Chicano movement on the other hand. White middle class women fought for political equality, women’s suffrage, and reproduction rights; Latino males fought for equal opportunity with and recognition from the dominant white U.S. American culture. The Chicana had very little interest in political rights, since she was usually concerned with questions of laundry and cooking. She didn’t want to fight for recognition from dominant culture, because she was still dominated by males of her own culture. While the Chicana movement achieved recognition and won many battles since then, the current climate in U.S. politics, the fear of immigrants, the disregard for women’s rights to their bodies, shows that there is much to be done. The House on Mango Street remains a book of utmost consequence to feminism, immigration and integration. What Sandra Cisneros captured, and I will try to show, is how the way we think about women influences the way we act toward them and how the same thoughts act on our self-perception.

Seminar paper from the year 2003 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 2 (B), University of Potsdam (Anglistics/ American Studies), course: Feminist Chicana Writing, 9 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Sandra Cisneros is one of the most popular feminist Chicana writers. She was born in Chicago in 1954 as the only daughter among six brothers of a Mexican - American mother and a Mexican father. In her early childhood the family moved a lot between Chicago and Mexico City, where her grandparents lived, so Cisneros never felt at home anywhere. Hence, she spent most of her time reading for the family's mobility prevented the development of friendships. When she attended college in 1974 she started writing poetry and prose in a creative writing class. There she created a style of writing that was intentionally opposite to those of her classmates. After receiving her M.A. at the University of Iowa she worked in a Chicano barrio in Chicago teaching high school dropouts and later on as an administrative assistant at Loyola University Chicago. Today she lives in San Antonio and is working on a new novel. In the following the depiction of women in her novel "The House on Mango Street" will be examined. This novel consists of a series of vignettes describing the growing up of the young girl Esperanza in a barrio in Chicago as she herself reflects it with her youthful naivety. She characterises different people, particularly women respectively girls surrounding her in various situations and depicts the living conditions of the barrio in general. The different female characters appearing in the novel will be analysed in reference to their deprived situation concerning race, gender and class. To that end the author will initially give an insight into the image and role of women in the Mexican - American culture. Accordingly the analysis of the different characters acting in various situations against the background of this will follow. The li
