This volume offers a comprehensive introduction to Sandra Cisneros' acclaimed novel. The opening essays describe the critical reception of the novel and its simple prose and reliance on suggestive metaphors and similes. A collection of classic essays offer a feminist approach to the work, an examination of gender stereotypes, a critique of patriarchy, and the role of female friendships. Other essays examine how Cisneros uses the novel to cross the boundaries of gender, class, language, and genres.
