Beneatha 's dream is to go to college and become a doctor. She wants to prove her family´s disbeliefs of her becoming a doctor wrong. Yet she feels defeated after her brother, Walter, goes out and gives away all of her college money to some man that ends up disappearing with the money. She faces challenges financially and faces backlash from her family. Walter, believes Beneatha should give up on her dream of becoming a doctor.
Charlie doesn’t want that to happen to him, but he knows it is inevitable. It is very hard to live with forgetfulness, impaired motor activity, depression, and a low IQ without any help. He has to go through the pain of knowing that the temporary intelligence he had received was all going to leave him. Charlie also does not have a stable income so it would be hard for him to learn more through an adult school like Miss Kinnian’s. By comparing Charlie’s mental state before and after the experiment, one can easily see that he was much more mentally stable before the
After a long talk with Mama, Beneatha takes a different approach with Walter when she backs him up saying “ That’s what the man said” (ARITS 3.1.121). The change in diction towards Walter from “rat” to “man” conveys that she has learned a hard lesson about family togetherness. Mama’s message to Beneatha is the same theme Hansberry is relaying to her readers. Each member of the Younger family demonstrate change in relation to the theme before and after the
Beneatha did not became a doctor at the end of the movie. Still, I think that since she planned to move to Africa with Asagai, then she’s going to have her education there. However we don’t know for sure what is going to happen after they move to the new house at Clybourne Park and if their dreams are going to be successful or
She supports them in everything, Beneatha becoming a doctor is harder because she is a black female, during this time the medical field was still mostly male oriented. Even though Beneatha's relationship with her mother is largely one of conflict because of their many differences, but it is not a strained relationship. They always end up hugging and supporting each other afterwards. She will always love her mother even if they do not always get along. Beneatha is a very strong and stubborn character, mostly so when it comes to her brother Walter Lee.
When Beneatha finds out about this she isn't happy and it makes her realized how much money can get in the way and break families apart. Overall, Beneatha’s education throughout the play isn't valued like you see in other situations and that really shapes her as a
She shows this through the Younger family. The younger family is an African American family comprised of Mama--Lena Younger, mother of Walter and Bennie--Walter who is married to Ruth--both in their thirties--Beneath, who is Walter's sister, and Travis--Walter and Ruth’s son. Overall, she shows that greed should not determine if someone should take advantage of opportunities. First of all, buying the new house is a sapient opportunity to
I want to be smart,” page 182. This quote reveals that Charlie is motivated and determined because because he has the want to be intelligent as he explains in his first “progris riport.” 2. In “Flowers for Algernon” by Daniel Keyes, the reader learns that Charlie is not smart and he wants to be smart. Charlie’s perspective is surprising for many reasons. In “progris riport 4- Mar 8” Charlie writes, “But most people of his low ment** are host** and uncoop** they are usualy duth apath** and hard to reach.
Tho it is hard to see until the very end of the play, A Raisin in the Sun written by Lorraine Hansberry shows Walter Younger is a big dreamer and wants to be rich. Younger is a very selfish man and shows his selfishness through his sacrificing of the family money. When the Younger family inherits ten thousand dollars from the death of a family member, Walter goes crazy trying to get his hands on the money to invest in the liquor store downtown. His selfishness is shown when Mama gives him what is left of the life insurance and he is told to save a generous amount of money for Beneatha’s schooling and then he can keep the rest for saving up. Instead of doing what he is told to do, he invests in the liquor store with his two other friends.
