In the stories, ³The Glass Menagerie², ³Death of A Salesman²,
and ³Raisin in the Sun², there are many things in common. The most
common thing in all of them I felt was how all the families all had ³American²
problems. In ³The Glass Menagerie², the ³American²
problem was a family dealing with an ill member. It also dealt with a mother who
was delusional and not the nicest person. In ³Death of a Salesman²
the main ³American² 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.

³Raisin in the Sun² as old as it might be, dealt with the prejudice
that is every where even in today¹s world. American¹s are constantly
dealing with criticism for being the wrong color, overweight, or even in some
cases the wrong religion. The other ³American² problem¹s 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 ŒThe Glass Menagerie², all the mother wanted was for her
daughter to have someone to take care of her which was important to her. IN
³Death of a Salesman², Willy only wanted the best for his family. He
struggled in his job and was always upset when he couldn¹t reach his goal
of buying something for his family. He wanted to better his career for his
family. In ³Raisin in the Sun², the main character Beneatha¹s
(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 wife¹s neck ³like every wife
should have², according to him.
