Yang Kwija’s “Cold Water Pass” is another work by him that does not conform to the ideals of utility by showing how a family is negatively affected by the state of their society rather than showing how the majority is prospering. “Cold Water Pass” follows the story of a family in which the father died and left them with a lot of debt and had to be taken care of by their older brother despite their financial difficulties.

A family has the faculty to become a person’s most colossal adherent, pushing them to be more proficiently adept at life. Albeit this may be true, in ‘A Raisin in the Sun’ Walter doesn’t feel as though his relatives fortifies his conceptions to advance himself along with the family, engendering a better life for them altogether.

Gibbs is berating his son George because he is being lazy. His mother is busy taking care of the family and the house (like any other 20th century woman would) and he is taking advantage of her. She should not be manual labor like chopping up wood that is George’s Job. Another quote that proves the traditional gender roles theme is “Well…I don’t have to tell you that we’re run here by a Board of Selectmen. – All males vote at the age of twenty-one.
In the excerpt, “Father”, Walker states “It hurts me to think that for both my parents, poor people, my arrival represented many more years of backbreaking and spirit–crushing toil.” This suggests that Alice’s parents were poor and barely had enough money to support their family. Unlike Alice, Amir’s dad was actually wealthy enough to support him and Amir. In “The Kite Runner”, Amir states how his dad has maids and even owns a orphanage, which requires money to run. Their differences in finance can create tension because in any terrible situation such as when the Taliban took over Amir’s family would have a higher chance to survive than Alice’s since they have money. Money can create a lot of problems and decision making in their life’s.

The family had never respected Gregor for his love, but only for his money. In addition to being the only innocent character in the book, I believe Gregor handled this change of lifestyle pretty well.
