Stepping into the shoes of others

Vera Pavlova’s poem To Converse with the greats is like meeting your idol for the first time. Your idol is the person you try to replicate. You rewrite their stories in your perspective and live that fantasy until you realize it was all just a dream in the solitary confinement of the universe. In House on Mango Street on many occasions, Esperanza dreams about stepping into the shoes of others. She isn’t contempt about her life and she has her own identity crisis.
