Hi, need to submit a 250 words essay on the topic Five paragraph : ABOUT drama; fences by August willson.
(Wilson, 37) Cory exposes his deepest feelings towards his father’s lack of concern to his family, especially towards him. But this is not totally true. Wilson depicts a typical man in that era who doesn’t show vulnerability to which Troy believes showing affection is one. At the same time, he cannot like Cory because he is not able to turn his son to be like him.
We build fences for two main reasons. to keep people out, and to keep them in. A fence is a major symbol in the play which connotes the reasons of the Wilson’s characters behind building one. Troy wants to keep his family and he takes building the fence as a sign of the thing he is getting tired of – responsibility. Unfortunately, this fence keeps people out – his family.
