A man who loved his mother would have cried a little bit at her funeral. Unlike Meursault’s behavior of being calm and distant at his mother’s funeral.

He wants to invest the money in a liquor store and have a partner or a friend go in on the deal with him to help him out.

Along with that, she’s married to Curley who she never really loved thus making it even lonelier for her. Also, since she’s married she can’t follow her dream of being a movie star which she confesses to George and Lennie. For instance Curley says to her “Why’nt you tell her to stay the hell home where she belongs?” This shows no one wants Curley’s wife around. Steinbeck even give her a name of her own. That just shows how much he wanted to express her isolation.
“I spoke of his mother; told him that I had seen her not long before I came aboard. He did not answer.” (Davies 146) However it is also this relationship that causes a large shift in the ways of Magnus. The man who once did not care about his mother and her well being, suddenly became defensive and slightly emotional once he learns some much needed truth. It was a rough subject in Paul's mind that could not be healed. “She is a part of a past that cannot be recovered or changed by anything I can do now.

The title Raisin in the Sun symbolizes an African-American family, the Youngers, moving into a white community the Clybourne Park, where they were not welcome. The play talks of the racial discrimination thoroughly as the Youngers were about to embark into a different society where people were only able to see the color of the Youngers, especially when Mr. Lindner went as far as attempting to bribe the Youngers not to move in.
