Willie’s dialect helps convey to the viewers the relationship developed between the two servants and how a big factor in their close bond is because they are the same race. Sam seems to have just as close a relationship with Hally having spent the same amount of time with him as he has with Willie, but Hally never uses the term “boet” to him or vice versa. Willie’s usage of it and Hally’s lack of usage emphasizes the barrier race can create within relationships.ImageryHALLY: […] Can you remember what the poor thing looked like? Tomato-box wood and brown paper! Flour and water for glue! Two of my mother’s old stockings for a tail, and then all those bits and pieces of string you made me tie together so that we could fly it! Hell, no, that was now only asking for a miracle tohappen.Hally’s in depth description of what the kite that Sam made looked like helped to convey his social status and further emphasize the kite’s symbolic idea of hope. Hally described the kite as being made of materials one would naturally attain from garbage cans and these details show to the viewers how low on the social ladder Sam is because he can’t even afford proper paper or string.

Despite its minimal material, Sam still believed the kite would fly because he’s accustomed to working with the little he’s allowed to have, but sinceHally’s used to grand things, he didn’t believe the kite could fly and these beliefs help to convey both characters’ general mindset.ALLEGORYHALLY: […] Yes, our title: “A World Without Collisions.”For Hally’s paper regarding an annual event of cultural or historical significance, Hally writes about the Ballroom Dance that Sam and Willie commonly attend. The characters speak about how at the Ballroom Dance everyone is in high spirits and they’ve all got their
choreography down so flawlessly that no one bumps into one another or makes a mistake. This event then becomes a greater representation of the type of world that the characters desire to live in; a world without violence or disagreement, a world with peace. The event as a whole symbolizes that world and society and each of the dancers symbolize different groups of people, for example, blacks and whites. This allegory allows the viewer to understand the characters’ hopes and desires on a much smaller scale. The fact that Sam has already experienced this event and Hally hasn’t foreshadows their decisions at the end of the play where Sam
