A Window of Opportunity

The one small window in the Younger’s house has a significance beyond its physical appearance. It could be seen as a “window of opportunity” and the sunshine beaming through is happiness. This little window is the only source of natural lighting in the whole house. It is no wonder that Mama’s plant is struggling to thrive and survive. At the end of the play I was relieved when Walter took charge and decided the family would move to the new house. This is one of the rare grown up actions he has taken in the whole play and it was nice to see him mature. The new house has a whole lot of sunlight. Happiness and new opportunities will surely embrace the Younger family at their new dwelling.

  1. i agree over here. i was also gald to see walter taking the charge. now he has become the man his mama wanted him to be. i think that mama knows that walter can run this family and the decision he took for the new house made him a man just like his father. mama was so proud of him.

  2. Emily, I agree what you said about Brother. He wasn't actin' like much of a man now was he? I hope you all can learn a lesson from my foolish son, but he stepped up into his manhood and acted like his daddy. You all are right, I am proud of him.
