Christopher 1 Taylor Christopher Professor Wicks LIT 209 11 September 2013 A Raisin in the Sun: Literature Response 1) In Act I, on page 43, Mama states that the flu is something that sounds “respectable” to white people, revealing that respect is an important theme in the play. List three things that Walter re- spects (your list might include both ideas and material objects). The number one thing Walter probably respects the most is money. In page (26), one of his first quotes is, “Check coming today?” On page (74), Mama states that freedom is everything and Walter responds back, “No--it was always money, Mama. We just didn’t know about it.” Walter eventually respects his family as well as his pride in his family on page (148) when he informs Lindner of the hard-working man his father was and how the family was not going to allow Lindner’s monetary bribe to manipulate their decision to move into the white neighborhood at Clybourne Park. In addition, Walter also re- spects the idea of the American dream. On page (109), he is very animated in how he delivers the message of the lifestyle of the American dream to his son Travis and is very enthused about potentially living it. 2) Describe how the relationship between Asagai and Beneatha helps us better understand the re- lationship between Walter and Ruth Younger (in what ways are the two relationships similar or different?).

    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.
