levels of education in the community. Cisneros even uses improper grammar and run-on sentences in her writing to show that some people do not have a very high level of education. Each letter is personal to the situation that the person is in. The way Cisneros writes the letters and the details she includes reveals some of the views she has of the people with the different problems and possibly how she would act if she were having a problem like some of the people in the letters. She includes her personal point of view within the letters. Baldwin and Cisneros both write from a very personal point of view. Although many people think that Cisneros writes from a more personal point of view than Baldwin because she uses letters, it makes more sense that Baldwin writes from a more personal point of view than Cisneros. The topic that Baldwin is writing about means a lot to him. He feels very strongly about the issues with Black English not being accepted as a language and about white people in America not accepting the black people when they were forced to move to America. He personally lived through a lot of the issues that he writes about so he includes very personal points of view in his essay. Cisneros includes some personal points of view in the letters that she writes, but they are not nearly as evident as Baldwin's.
