USE TWO OUTSIDE SOURCES (NOT INCLUDING THE TEXT!) AND QUOTE THE PRIMARY TEXTS AS WELL.
Pick ONE of the essay topics below for your paper.
A Raisin in the Sun
1. Each of the characters in the Younger family has a particular individual dream. One wants to move to a bigger home, one wants to attend medical school, one wants to rise above his conditions though does not necessarily have a plan to do so. Write an essay in which you compare and contrast the functions of dreams in A Raisin in the Sun. Consider whether there was a way to make each individual dream compatible with others’ dreams. If so, explain why the characters did not identify this alternative. Use examples from the texts along with 2 outside sources to support your thesis.
2. As we discussed in class, it can be said that each of the three female characters (Beneatha, Ruth and Mama) represent three women at different spectrums of their lives. Explain how they differ by finding examples in the text. Use examples from the texts along with 2 outside sources to support your thesis.
3. The title of Hansberry’s play makes a direct reference to the Langston Hughes poem, “A Dream Deferred.” “What happens to a dream deferred?” asked Hughes. “Does it shrivel up like a raisin in the sun?” Consider the conclusion of A Raisin in the Sun—or lack of one—and write a persuasive essay on A Raisin in the Sun in which you attempt to convince the reader that Hansberry does or does not answer Hughes’s question through the actions of her play. Explain the significance of the use of the line from the poem for the title of the play.
4. Pick a character and explain why he or she is main character in the play.
