“A Raisin in the Sun” (CRR)


  In Lorraine Hansberry’s, A Raisin in the Sun, the Younger family faced a lot of difficulties, and went through many struggles. They lived in poverty, and had to face racism, but that never stopped the Younger family from dreaming big. However, problems started occurring when Walter’s dreams started causing disputes in the family. He dreamed of owning a liquor store so he could invest in it and buy a house to get out of living in poverty. Walter was blinded by this dream, and that’s what Hanberry was trying to prove through out the story.

Dreams can blind someone, just like they did to Walter. He wanted to move into a house so bad, and when he finally did move into one , he wasn’t satisfied because things did go like his plans went in his dream. Hansberry wants to show that even though you might not get everything that you want in life, you have to learn to appreciate what you do have. In Walters occasion, he learned to appreciate his family, and took pride in his new house being completely aware that his family had just moved into a white neighborhood.
