Drama Analysis of "A Raising in the Sun"


I will be writing on the five major characters in the story “A Raisin in the Sun.” In the story all of the characters are different in there own ways but are all very much the same. In the story the five main characters are Lena Younger, Walter Younger, Joseph Asagai, Ruth Younger, and Beneatha Younger.



First I will start with Lena Younger, who is better known as Mama throughout the story. Mama in the beginning of the story is the head of the Younger household, she later lets her son Walter be the head of the house after she realizes that she is stopping him form being a man. Mama is the one that if anyone has a problem or need advise they go to for help. Mama is a proud, strong, independent black woman. Mama reminds me of the character in the television show “Mama’s House” because nothing happens without her knowing and no big decisions are made without them first being heard and approved by her. Mama is also the main character of the story, the story mainly follows the things that she does and wants to be done. In my family everyone listens to my grandmother and she does not even live in my house.



Walter Younger wants to be the man of the house, but he cannot in the beginning because Mama thinks that things should be done her way. All Walter wants to do is be a man, someone who can support his family without needing any help from others and be able to have his dreams come true. Walter in my eyes is someone I would consider a man’s man because all he tries to do is make a better life for his family and have a job he likes that is respectable. By the end of the story Walter dreams come true, he becomes the head of the house and makes things better for his family.



Joseph Asagai is actually much more important of a character than what most people think, the reason I say that is because he gives the Younger’s an outside perspective of what is happening to them. Joseph has the ability to just sit back and see everything unfold. Joseph is also important in the story because he makes Beneatha think more about herself, her culture, and her family.



Ruth Younger who is Walter’s wife is what I consider a very good wife, the reason I say that is because she supports her husband and does what she thinks is right. Sometimes all a man needs is the support of a good woman to be motivated. The one thing I did not like about her character in the story is that she takes a backseat to most of the other characters; her role in the story is mostly that of supporting character because she is around everything important but none of it happens to her.



Benetha Younger who I consider a young lady who just seems to be starved for attention, that is all of a sudden she because someone who becomes miss let us save everything and everyone. When Joseph comes into her life she becomes someone from Africa and then all of a sudden cares about everything that is happening to Africans, when before she did not care at all.



Now those are all the major characters of the story “A Raisin in the Sun”. They are all different but their individual stories are all in the same book of life because they are all a family and care for one another.
