The House on Mango Street Chapter 43 Summary

A House of My Own

  • Esperanza dreams of having a house of her own. It won't be a man's house – a husband's or a daddy's. And it won't be an apartment. It will be a whole house, all to herself.
  • The house will be a clean space for Esperanza to create – "clean as paper before the poem" (43.2).
