Essay on Sandra Cisneros/Barbie-Q
A 5 page essay that examines Sandra Cisneros' short narrative "Barbie-Q," which concerns the way that two little girls in the 1960s relate to their Barbie dolls. The narrative format is stream of consciousness, making the reader privy to the thoughts of one of the unnamed little girls. More of a vignette than a full-fledged short story, an examination of this work reveals that Cisneros' narrative is rather like a prose poem in the way that she manipulates symbolism to convey her observations on poverty, infidelity, and stereotypes. No additional sources cited.
