We see many themes in Raisin in the Sun by Lorainne Hansbery, themes such as dreams as the main characters in the novel struggle to deal with certain circumstances that effects their lives. Everyone has a dream and everyone struggles trying to peruse that dream.
Another theme in the book that i noticed other than following your dream is the theme of “family.” Family is an important part of the book through out the play. Family sticks together through hard times and through good times. The mom in the novel tries to keep the family together and their dream of purchasing a house.
A family must over come hardships and learn from it as we see this in the novel when the insurance money got stolen. The family in the book comes together and are strong characters who can over come any obstacles as long as they stick together.
