Both plays, having been written at the end of the 19th century, offer insight into how this societal pressure creates an environment in which women face a particularly large amount of pressure to find wealthy, suitable husbands rather than ones they truly love.

I call that business” (Wilde

Clarisse McClellan and Mildred's friends in Bradbury's novel, Fahrenheit 451 appear only briefly, nonetheless, they still have a great impact on the development of guy Montag as well as the plot. Montag thrives to do better with their influence; Clarisse by making him wonder about the potential beauty of the world, and Mrs. Clara Phelps and Mrs. Ann Bowles by proving to him the harshness of the society. As neighbours, Clarisse heavily affects Montag because of the society's condition on people like her and her family. Clarisse McClellan is a teenage character with a wondrous and curious personality about the world and nature. She confirms to be unmistakably strange and different in comparison to the other people around her.
She explains that ‘his loving, giving personality, and his compassion,” is what motivated her through hard times. The Nicaraguan culture is different from our culture so Myrna was mostly raised by her grandparents, and nannies, which she explained “they influenced my life the most.” This shows why she is inspired by her grandfather throughout her life. Her parents were ‘compassionate, and very loving,’ but they were not a huge part of her upbringing, only her grandparents were. While explaining the different culture she was reminiscing about what her life used to be like.
Walter wants to be free from the family’s low income lifestyle, and becoming rich is Walter’s extrinsic motivation to live. Mama said to Walter, “Son-how come you talk so much ‘bout money?” Walter responded with immense passion, “Because it is life, Mama!” Walter looks at life, and like a bride sees through her wedding vail, Walter sees through money lenses. He sees his father’s money as a possibility in a world that revolves around a minimal supply of money.

Similarly, I improvised with what I have at hand, and took a picture of a fresh and dried Goji berry. • Second, Walter yearns for the day he will fulfill his dream of earning a fortune for his family; his inability to fulfill this dream frustrates him, but he does not lose hope and believes that one day he can achieve his dreams of improving the life of his family.

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. Two people that exemplify this are Beneatha and Walter are people who let their dreams shape who they are in the present.
The Beautiful Are Damned In This Side of Paradise Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald’s writings showed the positive and negative sides of the American Dream, and it challenged the traditional upbringings to create a more independent identity for the American woman. Through Zelda’s free spirited lifestyle, Scott gained his inspiration for his writing. Her lifestyle only became wilder, driving Scott away from her and into the arms of another woman. The large wedge forced between their marriage began to have a negative effect on both of their writing styles.
