Four Skinny Trees

We choose to talk about this specific chapter since this was Esperanza's feelings towards Mango Street. The book, especially this chapter, talks about her personality, appearance, thought, and characteristics.


The Four Skinny Trees resemble Esperanza's Personality and Appearance

"Let one forget his reason of being, they'd all droop like tulips in a glass, each with their arms around each other."

Quote 4

"When I am too sad and too skinny to keep keeping, when I am a tiny things against so many bricks, then it is I look at trees."

"Four who grew despite concrete. Four who reach and do not forget to reach."
