A Raisin in the Sun

What's with the characters?

8. Both Mama and Walter seem defeated for a while in Act Three. However, we know from the play’s general tone that it cannot end in defeat for those good people. In spite of their apparent defeat and despair, we sense that he playwright is preparing us for another reversal. What is it that rouses each character from defeat to the joyful, triumphant note on which the play ends?

What roused them is that they still have hope they hold on to the fact they can still have thatbto depend on, they also have their dreams which they can hold on to.
