Conflict (Man vs Self)

MAMA It’s dangerous, son. WALTER What’s dangerous? MAMA
When a man goes outside his home to look for peace. (p.73)

Mama worries that if her son starts going outside to find peace then one day he might not come back. She feels that a man's house should be his safe and that there's a serious problem in that home if he can't find peace there.

Characterization & Quest of the American Dream:

Mama dream was that she wanted to buy the house for here family.

Conclusion

Moving into the house satisfies Mama's dream. She will finally be able to plant her garden that she has always wanted. At the same time moving into the house destroys Beneatha and Walter's dream. I hope if he does choose to invest money in the future he will be a little bit smarter about it.
