Post a New Question

Posted by on .

Also a continued post from yesterday:
I am wondering then why it's asked this way, "BENEATHA is particularly bitter, BUT Ruth defends Walter. What does Ruth SAY?"

Why does the question mention Bennie at all? And it asks, "What does Ruth SAY?" She only says, "Yes, Lena," when agreeing to Lena about Walter becoming a man. Is this really DEFENSIVE?

    When you don't want to "argue" about something... what do you say.... I say "yes?" Which interprets to go on, think it out.

    I don't understand what you are saying. Could you please explain it to me again?

    Ruth stood by Walter even when he is not being very smart. So when he finally comes to realize that "money" is not going to be the source of happiness, she agrees with Lena totally. Bennie, has to learn what is most important, just as Walter does. They are the "evolving " characters. Their "change" is what the play is about.

    So, the answer to what does Ruth say would be "Yes, Lena"?
