her education. She later says that she always was 
writing for her father, and writing for mainstream culture.

writer creating works of art. Her father has developed an 
unwell sickness. She gives her father some of her own

  • 11. Theme Even if you feel unappreciated by society and even disregarded and rejected because you are the minority of the crowd, at the end, your true colors will shine and people will respect you for the person you truly are…
  • 12. Read to understand • In a Mexican family, the sons are more useful than the daughters. They can get a job and provide for the family but the daughters are expected to stay home and cook and clean. • She was the only daughter, therefore she wasn't allowed to play with her brothers because they were too embarrassed to be seen playing with a girl. Being the only daughter left her to be by herself to think about things and start writing. • Because she could think and create things in her mind, she could write on paper to become a writer. He father expected her to go to college and find her husband.
  • 13. • Because she was almost done with school and she had not found a husband. He thinks that college is for finding a husband not getting education. It allowed her to get her things done without her father bugging her about what she was doing. • Atlast after her book he asks her where they could get more copies to give to the rest of the family.

  • 15. 2 Cisneros' father wanted his children to • become rich and famous. • avoid jobs that required physical labor. • avoid going to college. • become writers.

  • 18. 5 What did Sandra’s father say to indicate his pride in her work? • He apologized for not acknowledging her before. • He wanted copies for all the relatives. • He asked her to autograph her story for him. • He offered to finance her next book.
  • 19. Group questions • 1) What upsets Cisneros about the relationship between her and her father? What kind of relationship, or reaction, does she want from her father? • 2) In paragraph 3, how does Cisneros’s distinction between “only daughter” and “only a daughter” reveal much of what concerns her?
  • 20. Contd… • 3) What particular experience creates a significant improvement in this relationship? Why do you think this experience is so important not only to Cisneros but also to her father? • 4) What does the author mean when she says in paragraph 5 that “I’m lucky my father believed daughters were meant for husbands.
