Characterisation Walter Walter Lee Younger is one of the main characters of the drama “a raisin in the sun", written by Lorraine Hansberry. He gives the impression of being an immature and short tempered person, who seems to only be focused on pursuing his dreams and therefore is very career driven. Walter Lee is a 35 years old African-American male, who lives in an apartment south of california with his wife, his mother, sister and son. He dreams of opening his own liquor store and getting wealthy. Especially in the first his character is introduced as impatient and aggressive. During different conversations, for example the conversation between him and his wife on page 26, he does not hesitate to speak out his thoughts, which shows that he is direct but also does not set boundaries on himself. By doing so, he also reveals that he is impatient (p.26). Him slamming the door and insulting his family members, shows that he has a short temper and therefore gets annoyed very fast when he is provoked. But only towards his son travis, he is always friendly and understanding. He shows that by giving him the money which his wife was hesitant on doing. After his mother announced that him and his wife are expecting another baby,...

he leaves the apartment, instead of confronting his wife about it. That indicates that he is self centered and often only thinks about himself and his dreams. But it also shows signs of immaturity, because he chooses to run away instead of addressing important matters. Moreover, in the first, as well as in the second act he often mentions that he feels misunderstood by his family. By not supporting his dreams and instead buying a house, he feels like his mother has betrayed him. While this is followed by acceptance, he still shows signs of self doubt (p.106-107). Also important to mention are the negative character traits that follow in the second act, such as his offensive and mean behaviour. Because of his short temper, he is easily provoked, and gets offensive easy. And because he cannot control his anger, he expresses it by insulting others and acting mean. For example by insulting other peoples' looks (p.83). Walter starts drinking when minor inconveniences occurs. That again shows his immature and and sensitive character. However, as soon as thing start to go well on his behalf, he gets motivated and enthusiastic. When mama revealed that she left money for walter, so he can spend it on his liquor store, his whole mood and behavior changed and he got hopeful. That part of the drama is an important part, because in the second part of the second act, he starts to evolve and change as a character. Instead of being aggressive and mean, he starts to act nice towards the other family members. The cause of this is the money he received from his mother. That indicates that he acts depending on his mood. That again supports the fact that he sometimes acts immature (p.106/108). In opposition to the previous scenes, he acts happy and energetic in the last scene of the second act. Because of the money he got to spend on his liquor store, he is motivated and shows no signs of his previously mentioned anger and aggression. He even takes his wife out on a date and shows confidence by doing so. But if that is compared to his mood before he received the money, major changes in his behavior can be seen. That supports the fact that his he acts depending on his mood and also that his motivation is career driven. That again makes him appear self centered and childish. His good mood is also affecting his speech. While he usually talks rude and direct, he begins to speak politely. Being visited by Mr. Lindner, he acts nice instead of usually rude. Even when he was revealed the news by Lindner, that his family was not welcomed in their future neighborhood, he responds calm, even though he is clearly angry and annoyed. That is important to mention, as he used to scream and insult people when he felt provoked. However, when Walter found out that he lost all of the money, his mood started to change again. His behavior starts to worsen. But instead of being aggressive and offensive, he expresses his disappointment by being passive aggressive and being very talkative. He begins to talk about how he wants to accept Mr. Lindners offer to stay away from the neighborhood in exchange for the money. That shows his desperation but also his hopelessness (p.144). Instead of being optimistic, he is disappointed and upset. When it was revealed that Walter lost all of the money, including his sisters share of the money, it showed that he is not reliable and he also starts to get disappointed in himself. And because of his frustration he starts to lose control and panic. He starts to make fun of the situation in an exaggerated way (p.144). In the following, he leaves the scene, which makes him appear mysterious but also frustrated. In the last act, he fully evolves his Character. Instead of accepting Karl Lindners offer he suddenly talks about his family history. That shows that he is proud of his family. The sudden change of his opinion also indicates that he was affected by his mothers speech and therefore is caring about his family's well-being. All around, instead of being closed up, rude and selfish, he shows that he cares about his family and feels pride. To sum up, it is important to mention that Walter Lee hat a major character development. His character development is fast and difficult. Walter Lee started as a rude and aggressive Husband, who only cares about wealth and his dreams. He evolved into a selfless and caring person. There is almost nothing left of his previous character traits. Throughout the drama he realizes the importance of family and also starts to make good decisions. Walter Lee is the Character with the most development in the drama.
