To begin, Hansberry uses Lena Younger(Mama) as one of the characters who had a negative effect from her dream being deferred or put off. Mama is the mother of Beneatha and Walter Younger and widow to Walter Sr. Her dream was she wanted to build a happy family and believes one step toward this goal is to own a bigger and better place to live. But is put off when her husband dies and he leaves behind a 10,000$ check behind of his life earnings. Upon learning that her husband was the key to her dream and when he dies so does her dream Mama first realizes that her dream had died.
The first part of her dream may be deferred because of the money Walter loses. Her dream is also one deferred for all women. Beneatha lives in a time when society expects women to build homes rather than careers. As for saving her race from ignorance, Beneatha believes she can make people understand through action, but the exact course she chooses remains unclear at the end of the play. Walter dreams of becoming wealthy and providing for his family as the rich people he drives around do.
Selfish. These are all traits that would describe Walter Lee and his actions. Walter Lee is a character from the play A Raisin in the Sun in which a black family tries to get out of poverty and go against stereotypes by trying to start over with their Grandpa’s life insurance money. A Raisin in the Sun by Lorraine Hansberry explores the concept that greed leads to being blinded by money and forgetting about one’s loved ones as shown by the climax of the play, the character of Walter Lee, and the effect that his actions have on the rest of his family. The Character of Walter Lee shows that greed blinding a person can cause him to forget about the ones he loves.
Flannery O’Connor’s “A Good Man is Hard to Find” is a short story that makes readers question what truly makes a good person. The grandmother in the story believes she knows what a good person is, but the Misfit challenges her morals which makes her question what makes a good person. Both the Misfit and the grandmother judge people based on their moral code but one of their moral code is more authentic than the other. In her final moments of life does the misfit make her see what really makes a person good? The grandmother doesn’t seem to develop in the story until she faces life or death at the end, she may have never developed if have it not been for the Misfit.
Now even though Walter’s dream was mostly shattered because of the money he lost Beneatha’s dream of becoming a doctor might come true if she moves to Nigeria with Asagai, and Mama’s dream of having a house for her grandson and her children to live was really the most important dream to have been accomplished. Sometimes we feel like giving up on our dreams because of the obstacles that show up but that doesn't mean we should stop pursuing them because dreams are very valuable, andt as Hansberry showed on the play at the end all that matters is that happiness is present no matter the
Bill Bradley once said, “Ambition is the path to success. Persistence is the vehicle you arrive in.” Ambition, one of the few motives that will push a person to excel, is achieved before anyone can construct a plan to meet their expectations for their future. Quite persistent and defying the stereotypes, Beneatha Younger, a young, ambitious woman living during the 1950s struggles to oppose stereotypical mindsets hammered into the minds of the society around her while she struggles to win the war taking place beyond what the world has the ability to see. Beneatha Younger is not your typical 1950s woman you would expect to read about, instead, she is conveyed as an outgoing, ambitious woman who struggles to find herself amidst a storm of judgemental bullets. Lorraine Hansberry wrote, A Raisin in the Sun, about the Youngers, an African American family, living in a racially segregated society in Chicago’s southside during the 1950s.
In the play A Raisin In The Sun, Lorraine Hansberry proved that in life, wealth always matters in how we dream and how we see ourself. Around the end of the book, Walter had been scammed of his money and was extremely devastated. He talked about his dreams and life lesson bitterly, seemingly losing himself slowly (pg. 141-144). During his talk with Mama, Walter bitterly talked about how he learned an important life lesson the hard way.
Both protagonists believe in their dreams, and have high hopes for the future. In the play, Walter’s mother receives a paycheck due to her husband passing, and is unsure of what she should do with it. Walter Lee fantasizes about this money, believing he would become rich once that money was invested into business. However, these fantasies come into conflict with Mama’s when she buys a house with some of the money. The poem’s protagonist also recalls to
In Henderson the Rain King Henderson tells his first wife, Frances that he wants to become a doctor and she just laughs at him. In A Raisin in the Sun Walter has a business idea that he thinks will make him a lot of money but no one believes that he could or should do it. My final comparison is in Fahrenheit 451. Faber and Dahfu are alike because in Henderson the Rain King Dafu helps and talks with Henderson about the things he is struggling with. In Fahrenheit 451 Faber helps Montag with understanding why they burn books and what are in the books.
Janie is characterized as a strong, self-sufficient, and independent. But, she was introduced to the book as all these things, but the author shows how she had developed into someone with these qualities throughout the course of the rest of the book beginning with flashback. At the beginning of the flashback, she was portrayed to be naïve and she had allowed Nanny to set her up with Logan Killicks whom she soon found out that she hadn’t really seemed to love. It was then when she had realized that her ideals had differed from those of her grandmother’s. Her grandmother believed that a huband should be wealthy and able to provide for the wife, but Janie believed there had to be a sense of mutual love between both partners in a relationship.
50). Basically proving that Beneatha is against most of the males in her life, such as Walter and George in her life, in the situation of becoming a doctor. Walter doesn’t think the money was worth her medical school and George doesn’t believe that woman should become doctors just as same thought as Walter. This supporting my claim by showing that Beneatha is always determined or yelling at her family because they are not behind, and supporting her path to achieve the dreams she has for herself. In “Raisin in the Sun” the author conveys the theme that dreams morph who you are by developing key character’s identity.
One the other hand The American Dream is not completely accurate. The American Dream is dead and good riddance is what some people say. The plaguing of the american dream, notably home ownership, educating two children, as well as owning a good car. But for some that isn’t even what the dream involves. The more tradition of the american dream is marriage, But a lot of these people are living their own version of the dream.
