A Raisin in the Sun

             A Raisin in the Sun contains many themes.
             those themes from her personal views and experiences.
             around the time of the depression had similar views and similar themes in their writings. .
             Two themes Lorraine Hansberry uses in A Raisin in the Sun is that dreams can.
             either save or destroy a person or in this case a family and the importance of family.
             values and morals. As Walter dreams bigger and bigger he seems to leave the things.
             such as his family behind. This movement away from the family is against the.
             furtherance of the values and morals of the family. Where in the past his father would.
             have been happy working for another man and caring for his family, Walter is more.
             concerned with becoming self-employed or at least in a management position without.

             we were the products of the proudest and most mistreated of the races of man; that there.
             was nothing enormously difficult about life; that one succeeded as a matter of course. .
             And, above all, there were two things which were never to be betrayed: the family and.
             the race." Lorraine Hansberry put her personal views into A Raisin in the Sun.
             Many black authors and poets around the time of the depression had similar views.
             and themes. They all seemed to have been taught family values and morals. For.
             example in Langston Hughes short story "One Friday Morning" Nancy Lee is taught to be.
