Select one of the following quotes from Soledad and discuss its significance to understanding the novel in one paragraph. Begin by situating the quote in the context of the novel and providing the speaker. Then discuss what is said in the quote and how it impacts the relationships and/or recurring themes of the novel. Finally, identify at least one word, image, or syntax choice made by the author that emphasizes the overall impact of the quote.
“No matter where you place a saint it’s awalys in the right place. That’s what Gorda says. They carry that strength in them. I imagine having that kind of power. To be able to walk into a room and feel at ease, where nothing can hurt me” (19).
“These places are traps. Don’t you see there is no place fo rus to go from here? Soledad, we need to start our own thing, make our own rules, where the sky is the limit. A place where our mamis can come and not feel like they don’t belong” (57).
“They said depression was anger turned inward. And come to think of it, Gorda has not seen Olivia show anger. She always holds it in, stuffing it inside to the deepest corners” (109).
“Tonight the seams that help me forget threaten to burst. I hold them closed with my hands. I get a needle and thread and begin to reinforce every stitch. Against my will the pillow’s fabric spreads itself apart, wearing away, becoming transparent like a balloon. I try to move it away from me. I want to kill it, stuff it in the incinerator outside, but it lifts itself up into the air beyond my reach and then it comes back down” (189).
“I reminded Soledad that her eyes turn green when she cries because her sadness belongs to me. Don’t let go, Mami, Soledad said over and over again. When I saw the reflection of my face in her eyes, I was sorry for all the sadness I had given her” (223).
