Lorraine Hansberry’s play A Raisin in the Sun (1959) asserts that in life, those with less don’t go there in one day but through a prolonged time of struggle and strife . The first scene of the novel describes that a family that once was united and loving evolved into one that continues to survive in the conflict of society. In order to do this the author describes the furniture of the house and explains how through time the decor seemed to get worn and torn out. This section gives the audience the sense that the moments you once had can be replaced by ones you don’t want.
