How Esperanza Changes Over Time:
The Phoenix Metaphor
Turn to page 249, fifth paragraph, where it says: “As the sun rose, Esperanza began to feel as if she rose with it.”
“What is a phoenix?”
- A phoenix is a mythological bird resembling an eagle that lived for a long time, then would burn itself out and be reborn from the ashes.
- A phoenix commonly appears in literature as a symbol of the end of one life and the beginning of a new life.
Think - Pair - Share
* “In what ways does Esperanza change as a person throughout the novel?”
* “Why do you think the author chose to compare Esperanza to a phoenix in these last pages of the book?”
“Would you have wanted to be Esperanza’s friend at the beginning of the novel? Would you want to be her friend at the end of the novel? Why or why not?”
