Sandra Cisneros experiments with her narrative. It certainly is easily understandable but it is also poetic. This flexibility of language allows Cisneros to streamline her writing by doing things like abandoning quotation marks. The overall impression becomes a narrative that flows almost seamlessly unencumbered by grammatical clutter.
