In Lorraine Hansberry’s “Raisin in the Sun” Act 3 Walter has seized the hero role and he displays a lot of pride. Walter is starting to understand that he has to stand up for what he believes in and not everything is about money. “And we have decided to move into our house because my father-my father-he earned it for us brick by brick”(1933). Walter turns down the Clybourne Park Association 's offer only after he remembers the roots his family has in America, and the rights that they deserve. He wants to set a strong example for his son, Travis, just like his father did for him.
Throughout the memoir, we learn about Baca’s father through the memories he would share. Baca does not degrade his father, even though his father was not there for him. The lack of a father only gave Baca a greater determination to become a loving father for his family and to live life the best he can (Baca, 6, 2001). As a young child, Baca was afraid of his father’s temperament, but Baca still yearned his father’s love “I want to go to him and hug him but I’m afraid.” (Baca, 144, 2001). Baca’s father was a strong factor that affected Baca’s life.

¬¬¬¬Both Charley and Willy work as salesmen, however Charley represents what Willy desired to become – successful. Charley’s humility leads to his success, and the contrast of these two characters highlights Willy’s arrogance and impracticality. Charley is humble, realistic, and knowledgeable. His self-confidence allows him to live a happy life without needing to boast. In contrast, Willy constantly brags about his life to boost his self-image.
The character, Jeevan Chaudhary and I define happiness in exceedingly similar ways because we prioritize similar things in our lives. Jeevan finds happiness with his family. Family can be the most important people in one’s life. After Jeevan’s time in Allan Gardens, he decides that “he wanted very much to tell Frank about the evening…” (16). His first instinct after having such a whirlwind of a night is to go to his brother and tell him about it; not to go home to his girlfriend, but to see his brother, his family.

Society’s values influence people to construct their personal mores around them, and those who do not are not accepted by society. In our society, those who have well-paying careers are valued above those who do not. So when McCandless decided against following the path society expects him to, his parents were upset. “Chris informed his parents that he had no intention of going to college. When Walt and Billie suggested that he needed a college degree to attain a fulfilling career, Chris answered that careers were demeaning ‘twentieth-century inventions,’ more of a liability than an asset, and that he would do fine without one, thank you” (114).
The anecdotes establish the emotional appeal, and also gain credibility. Stein, writing as a father, explains everything their family has gone through in order to give his boy the opportunity he has. He explains how capital, in the form of money, has been passed through the generations. Stein begins by discussing his grandparents' many jobs but also stating that they had accumulated no evident capital. Regardless of this lack of money, the next generation, Stein's parents, earned sufficient financial capital by getting human capital in the form of education.
When it comes to his family, Jason aligns his ideals with and draws his inspiration almost entirely from his mother and Julia. While certain scenes present the father in a tolerable light, the chapter ‘Souvenirs’ stands as a symbol for the discourse in their father-son relationship. Jason’s dad is actually far to similar to his son, as shown by the quickness with which he shirked from an altercation with his boss, to serve as a proper role model. In the later half of that same chapter, however, Jason recounts “I had no idea mom could be so bulletproof”(193) when depicting how she stood up to the spoiled, highschool thieves. Far more than just a juxtaposition to the father’s frailness, the mother’s action serve as an idealized metaphor for Jason’s own struggles.
