Each character struggles with searching for who they are. Their traumatic experiences as children left them with no one to turn to so as adults they turn to others to find truth about themselves.

Ruth had been forbidden to spend time with Frances or any other non-Jew by her father. As Myers tells us, there are four factors that determine obedience, emotional distance, closeness and legitimacy of the authority, whether the authority is part of an institution respected by the person and the effects of having an associate that is willing to be disobedient (Myers, 2015). There was an emotional distance between Ruth and her father as he had not shown love to his family. Because of this lack of a loving home, the emotional and physical abuse she endured, and the mistreatment of the African American people whose seeming happiness and warmth she admired, Ruth did not have a strong sense of her father’s authority. Similarly, she did not view the Jewish “institution’ her father was part of as legitimate because she had felt ostracized by them due to their judgment of her family business.

I honestly believe Ruth in the play did not have much of a impact on Walter Lee 's masculinity. Walter Lee ignores Ruth For most of the play and what she really wants for the family. Walter chooses to only focuses on what he believes the family should have.Walter Lee 's behavior towards her is taking a real toll on Ruth ,this is what has contributed to the deterioration of their relationship. Walter 's mother had far more of a impact. His deceased father had more of a impact and one could argue Travis who I like to compare to Walt Jr form Breaking Bad.
