A Raisin in the Sun

What does the platwright want us to understand?

Walter asks Ruth, “What is it gets into people ought to be close?” When they try to talk about why they are having problems, Walter and Ruth reach no conclusion. What do you think the playwright wants us to understand about the cause of their problems?

She wants us to understand that every family has thier problems. They need to come to an understanding and try to work out their differences. Most of the times though because of a lack of communication between both parties, they become envolved in a stalemate and neither party came to an agreement or an answer to solve their problem.
