Interview of Sandra Cisneros

Here is a link where you can see an interview of Sandra Cisneros being interviewed by Dorothy Allison. (If you are interested, here is a link to her reading selected works.) During the interview, she makes some interesting remarks about the role of a “mistress,” among other things.

It is only natural that she might consider this position after a rejection of “wife.” She examines the role of mistress in two stories, “Never Marry a Mexican” and “The Eyes of Zapata.” Evaluate the conclusions that she reaches.

You might also consider what these stories, especially the first one, suggest about prejudices between Mexican Nationals and Mexican Americans. Between Mexican Americans and European Americans. Between men and women from each of these positions.
