This short story brings up perspective because it is told from the point of view of a girl who has just turned eleven but also feels as if she is experiencing life at every other age before 11. I recommend this book to all it is a sad but a life long lesson type of book. I think the lesson is, it is ok to cry because when she did it no one judged her. When she cries in the middle of class, the narrator feels as if she is three rather than a preteen. Overall, she uses many elements of voice to depict the message of this story. Naturally, the text belongs to the expository type of discourse; in this case, it is persuasive exposition, containing, though, elements of description. Price takes the sweater and puts it right on my desk Eleven Sandra Cisneros, Page 7 Rachel does not have any say, Mrs.
The main character Rachel, who doesn't like the fact she doesn't know what to do and wants to be older and wiser. There are also examples of general terms object, aspect and common terms exema. I recommend this book but read it with another person too I'll sound better. The main character-Rachel, feels nothing different about turning eleven, and does not want to express her own idea and opinion. She very nicely described how all people will revert back to past ages. Price keeps saying, but nobody can remember.
I put my head down on the desk and bury my stupid clown-sweater arms. I move my pencil and books and eraser as far from it as possible. For example when she say I don't, you're not. Every second of our life we have to deal with a lot of problems, different situations in which we have to behave according to our age. And some days you may feel like being older will solve all your problems, and that's the part of you that never goes away. That's how being eleven years old is.
On the story Eleven The main idea of this story is your actions and thinking doesn't represent your physical age. I think that the author really understands unfairness. To me, it is a story that can either be taken at face-value or interpreted subjectively. It's quick and easy to get through, filled with a symbolism that can shoot over one's head. Rachel is confronted with the obstacle of trying to enjoy her birthday and be happy she is eleven and be treated as such, yet her teacher and peers do not even acknowledge her birthday they simply force this ugly, smelly, beat up sweater on her and ultimately make her cry.
Or maybe you're so far removed from your eleven year old self that you can't remember ever having felt that way. And you don't feel eleven at all. Rachel ultimately gives in to the threats of wearing the sweater but the important thing to note is she does not do it proudly. Only today I wish I didn't have only eleven years rattling inside me like pennies in a tin Band-Aid box. In his work James Joyce turned to the human consciousness away from social problems.

It's not much because this short story is only four pages twenty-two paragraphs long. We should cry if we need this like we are 3 years old. She hates it when she turns to a new age because she never feels like she was in her new age when it occurred. The fact that she is so disgusted by the sweater that she cannot even stand to be near it is a true testament to her character and strength. I'm eleven and it's my birthday today and I'm crying like I'm three in front of everybody. She lives in San Antonio, Texas.

On your birthd If you can't understand why the main character is crying, then lucky you; you have never felt like she did. Even addressing the fact that Rachel is ashamed but not letting it bother her is a form of resistance. Don't even get us started on those stupid monkey bars. Rachel overcomes resistance in the following quote; Except when math period ends Mrs.
But when the sick feeling goes away and I open my eyes, the red sweater's still sitting there like a big red mountain. One of the characteristic features of the text is a combination of the formal and informal lexis to explain the subject matter. I never thought about growing up in such a poignant and beautiful way, never thought about all the pretending we do and how at every stage of our life we wish we were older; we wish we knew more so that maybe we could know what to do in a certain moment of weakness and confusion. So she finally gets to take ti off. The collection was also listed as a noteworthy book that year in The New York Times and The American Library Journal.
