The inspirational play, “Fences” was a drama written by August Wilson that sets the setting in the 1950’s. During this time period, segregation was prevalent and deeply affected many African American communities. The struggles faced by these African Americans were very evident within the characters in the story, specifically Troy. Troy, the protagonist, and patriarch of the family fail to accept reality. Through the use of tragic flaw, Wilson reveals how pride can lead to self-destruction.

As the camera zooms out slowly and we hear crickets chirping, we are introduced to the charming world of “What’s eating Gilbert Grape”. The film that many have come to love, along with its extremely famous actors, was released in 1993 in the United States and directed by Lasse Hallstrom. Endora, Iowa is the home of the Grape family, it’s a small, unchanging town where the main character Gilbert (Johnny Depp) feels trapped and death seems to be the only way out. Gilbert provides for his mother, sisters, and his autistic brother, Arnie (Leonardo Di Caprio). “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape?” is in many ways an unrealistic and demeaning view of autism.
After reading Fences by August Wilson, I strongly believe with my perspective of the book, that Troy Maxson is a villain. I came to this conclusion due to my view of his actions and feelings against his son, Cory Maxson. Cory wants to fulfill his dreams as a football player in college while seeking acceptance and love from his father. When he tries to talk to Troy about his “full ride” scholarship to play football in college, his dad shuts him down and refuses to sign the contract to join the team. It is ironic how Cory has the aspiration and goal to be just like his father, Troy, because in my view, Troy does not have his son’s best interest in mind.
In August Wilson’s play “Fences” the author uses parallel plot, conflict between characters and motifs to build tension between the characters. Wilson uses parallel plot between Troy and his father and Cory and Troy to build tension between them. For example, Troy is similar to his father by blowing off work and disobeying his father and Cory is similar to Troy with his attitude about his father. He also creates conflict between characters to build tension, an example of this are the fights between Troy and his loved ones. The third narrative element Wilson uses are motifs.
