A Raisin in the Sun
Jazmin, Lance, Michael, Desia Period Two
Man vs Self
Man vs Self connects with the theme we chose because this conflict deals with characters choosing the right choice between what they want and what they should do.
"And we have decided to move into our house because my father-my father-he earned it for us brick by brick. We don't want to make no trouble for nobody or fight no causes, and we will try to be good neighbors. And that's all we got to say about that. We don't want the money," (pg.149).
This quote shows even though Walter wanted to take the money from Mr. Linder he did what was right for his family, by not taking the offer and setting a good example for his son.
Characterization & Quest for the American Dream
"Just tell me where you want to go to school and you'll go. Just tell me, what it you want to be-and you'll be it... Whatever you want to be-Yessir,"(pg.109).
