Glass Meangerie - Death Of Salesman - Raising In


In the stories, іThe Glass MenagerieІ, іDeath of A SalesmanІ,
and іRaisin in the SunІ, there are many things in common. The most
common thing in all of them I felt was how all the families all had іAmericanІ
problems. In іThe Glass MenagerieІ, the іAmericanІ
problem was a family dealing with an ill member. It also dealt with a mother who
was delusional and not the nicest person. In іDeath of a SalesmanІ
the main іAmericanІ problem was alcohol. Alcoholism is something
that affects most families. IN this play the family was also struggling to keep
up with things which is something most of us face in life. Adultery also took
place in this play which takes place unfortunately in some families in America.
іRaisin in the SunІ as old as it might be, dealt with the prejudice
that is every where even in today№s world. American№s are constantly
dealing with criticism for being the wrong color, overweight, or even in some
cases the wrong religion. The other іAmericanІ problem№s were
the father drinking and the issue of abortion. Abortion is something that has
taken place more in society every day. All these families despite there problems
had a genuine thing in common. That thing was wanting their families to be
better. In ЊThe Glass MenagerieІ, all the mother wanted was for her
daughter to have someone to take care of her which was important to her. IN
іDeath of a SalesmanІ, Willy only wanted the best for his family. He
struggled in his job and was always upset when he couldn№t reach his goal
of buying something for his family. He wanted to better his career for his
family. In іRaisin in the SunІ, the main character Beneatha№s
(head of the house) son wanted to for fill his dreams in order to create a
better life for his family. He was frustrated when he realized that he might not
even be able to put pearls around his wife№s neck іlike every wife
should haveІ, according to him.
