For example in Sandra Cisneros’s essay. “Notes of a Native Daughter”, the author uses repetition of statements such as “not enough” to convey her discontent with her home. Additionally, she said that “In the neighborhood we knew, booze was easier to find than books” (22). These repetitions are important because without them the reader would not truly understand just the state of living they were in, in Chicago. Continuing this theme, she quotes “Every place we lived never had enough bedrooms for seven kids” (24). This repetition also shows that because the family had struggled so much with money, she was never happy in her home.
