Three Street Works - In the printed context of 0 TO 9, Three Street Works’ multiple identities (as a document but also a poem) are not so out of the ordinary. It reproduces some of the same flexibility ascribed to the medium of poetry by Acconci and Mayer themselves. Although 0 TO 9 also published numerous works in language in its pages that its editors may or may not have thought of as poetry, Three Street Works actually resembled the most conventionally poetic of its contents. The capitalized title next to Burton’s name signifies the page’s status as such, as this is how other poems in the meticulously designed magazine were presented....   [tags: Theater] 720 words

The House on Mango Street - ... Now the slab can be seen as a secondary result deriving from the poor condition of the roots. The roots of the trees act as a metaphor for the community on Mango Street, which supports Esperanza’s development. Because the roots of the community on Mango Street are tangled in cycles of tragic abuse, Esperanza is deprived of the essential social and ethical requirements she needs to grow. When Esperanza explains that the trees “send ferocious roots beneath the ground”, she is implying that the trees are trying to dig deeper in order to find an essential element for their growth (Cisneros 74)....   [tags: Character Analysis, Esperanza] 1182 words
