Beth White English 120 Angels in America Response The ironic relationships between the characters made me quite curious as I continued through the play. Joe Pitt, at the beginning of the play, seems an average, middle-class Mormon man. He seems to have a strong faith in God, as well as a moral compass that limits his actions to those he feels are correct in the eyes of God. His friendship with Louis is curious because Louis does whatever he wants – he’s a free spirit with no inhibitions, religious or otherwise. Joe’s attraction to Louis is not limited to the fact that he’s gay— for he also wants to live as Louis does. For Joe’s character, this is strange, since Louis is probably an agnostic or atheist. Louis himself also provides interesting irony. The author, Tony Kushner, created a great conflict between the two characters through their seemingly illogical friendship. Despite the fact that Louis loves to speak about theories on how people can fit into these systems, his life is the very contradiction of these ideological systems.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
