The reaction Walter experiences are similar to the line “Maybe it just sags/like a heavy load” (Hughes 9-10). The deferred dream causes Walter to sink to the bottom, and it seems like he may never resurface. He copes with this disappointment by drinking excessively. This leads Mama to understand how her lack for support has undermined Walter’s hope. After the money Mama gave him was stolen, Walter’s anger manifests to the point he claims,“What’s the matter with you all!
Due to the loss of his and his sister’s money, Walter breaks down and decides to demean himself in front of Lindner, who wishes for the Youngers to rethink moving into his white neighbourhood. However, right before Walter loses all his dignity from grovelling at the white man’s feet, Mama steps in with Travis. Travis is Walter’s son, who he loves and cares for immensely. With his young son there as witness, Walter is finally able to muster up enough determination to face Lindner and refuse his offer of money for their new home. Due to his family and compassion for his son, Walter is able to face his loses and keep moving forward.
Beneatha, for example, sees Walter as a joke, she believes that his idea of investing her father's insurance money was one of the craziest ideas. Travis on the other hand actually looked up to his father and even says that he wants to become a bus driver, in order to follow his daddy’s footsteps. The most dramatic actions that Walter experiences throughout the play would be when he spends his dad’s insurance money on the liquor store without giving Beneatha her half of the share. Another one would be how he finally notices that money cannot buy happiness. When Mr. Lindner offers his family money so they would not move into the white neighborhood, he was first considering it, but he finally understood that it was not right.
His character likes to turn discussions into fights, make rude comments to his wife, and act all around immature. A part that accurately shows the way Walter conducts himself is when he is arguing with Ruth and says “Man say: I got to change my life , I'm choking to death, baby! And his woman say- Your eggs is getting cold!” (Hansberry 495). Some argue that his attitude isn’t solely because he’s choosing to be pessimistic, perhaps he is also tired of living the life he’s living. Walter works as a chauffeur for a rich white man and feels that
Walter Younger is a very complicated character in the play A Raisin in the Sun. He has a dream of opening up a liquor store, but doesn’t have the financial support. Luckily for him, due to the recent death of his father, a check in Walter’s father’s name is given to his mother, Lena “Mama” Younger. This check contains ten thousand dollars, which is more than enough money for Walter to open up his store and follow his dreams. Unfortunately, when he finds out that his mother had spent part of the money, he is devastated, so to make him feel better, Mama gives Walter 6,500 dollars to use for his own discretion.
He portrays a ordinary person that be bullied by the superior and gets laughed at by others. The lowliness of the character are performed vividly by him. He also shows us how he enjoys the fantastic and stimulation adventure, aspires after more provocative journey. The most attractive part of his performance is the scene that he skateboards on the road of mountains, on that time, Walter Mitty feels very relax and easiness, like a bird that flying in the sky freely. Ben Stiller understands the feelings of Walter Mitty very well and shows us that complex emotions by exquisite skills of performance.
The attraction this female character portrays for Walter Neff is phenomenal, she has captured his attention by the way he glazes at her. As they are talking Walter introduces himself and soon after Phyllis asks how she could take out an accidental insurance policy on her husband’s life without his consent. By asking this of Walter we know that she is up to no good especially because she doesn’t want her husband to know. Neff infers that she is anticipating a murder and leaves because he does not want to be a part of it. Her sexuality has influenced Walter to the point he can’t get her out of his head and soon after she shows up to his apartment and that is when we see that he is no longer able to resist her.
Throughout the play, Walter is seen as the shifty, temperamental, and somewhat selfish character who solely focuses on his dream to never have to worry about anything monetary. His means of achieving this at this point, he hopes, is to purchase a bar with two of his friends. When this does not become a reality, Walter is gloomy and depressed, forced to confront the colossal mistake that he made with the money that was not originally his. For this reason, Walter is granted a bar in the added scene with the money from his mother’s life insurance. The hopes of this was to show that Walter has grown as a father, son, husband, and overall as a man.
Everything about the show is astonishingly well executed. I choose Walter over the other characters because of how interesting his character is. Walter Hartwell White Sr. also known by his alias "Heisenberg"(this is a reference to Werner Heisenberg, a theoretical physicist who was key in developing the theory of Quantum Mechanics) born on September 7 1959. Walt had been diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer, which he could
This causes him to be bitter towards the women in his life. Living in a two-bedroom apartment in the slums of Chicago is Walter, his mother (Lena), his wife Ruth, Beneatha (his sister), and his son Travis. Walter wants to do better by them by starting a liquor business using the insurance money his father gave his mother, but Mama, who is religious says it’s not Christian and “We ain’t no business people…We just plain working folks.” Then his wife, Ruth tells him she doesn’t want to hear about a dream he never pursues, and Beneatha tells Walter he’s crazy and that the money doesn’t belong to him. Especially since none of the family seems to listen or even support his idea he becomes bitter towards them. Lashing out at them and making them feel guilty that they don’t believe or rely on him to support them or that they make him feel less of a
