Walter Lee Masculinity

128 Words1 Page
I honestly believe Ruth in the play did not have much of a impact on Walter Lee 's masculinity.
Walter Lee ignores Ruth For most of the play and what she really wants for the family. Walter chooses to only focuses on what he believes the family should have.Walter Lee 's behavior towards her is taking a real toll on Ruth ,this is what has contributed to the deterioration of their relationship.
Walter 's mother had far more of a impact. His deceased father had more of a impact and one could argue Travis who I like to compare to Walt Jr form Breaking Bad. Travis comes in eats breakfast and doesn 't do or say anything important,yet has a big influence on the decisions of the other characters, especially Walter Lee.
