In the final chapter of Esperanza Rising, Esperanza tells Abuelita their story “in spans of fruits and vegetables and by what needed to be done to the land.” How does this outline Esperanza’s character arc? How does it demonstrate her status as a dynamic character? Would she have told a personal narrative story differently back when she lived at El Rancho de las Rosas? What if she had never left her beautiful Mexican ranch? What if her father had not died? Would she have been a better person? A more vain person? Explain your understanding of Esperanza as a dynamic character, and tell how her role as a field-worker has shaped her transformation.
