In Raisin in the Sun, Lorraine Hansberry does not reject integration or the economic and
moral promise of the American dream; rather, she remains loyal to this dream while looking,
realistically, at its incomplete realization. Once we recognize this dual vision, we can accept
the plays ironic nuances as deliberate social commentaries by Hansberry rather than as the
unintentional irony that Bigsby attributes to the work. Indeed, a curiously persistent refusal
to credit Hansberry with a capacity for intentional irony has led some critics to interpret the
plays thematic conflicts as mere confusion, contradiction, or eclecticism. Isaacs, for example,
cannot easily reconcile Hansberrys intense concern for her race with her ideal of human
reconciliation. But the plays complex view of Black self-esteem and human solidarity as
compatible is no more contradictory than Du Boiss famous, well-considered ideal of ethnic
self-awareness coexisting with human unity, or Fanons emphasis on an ideal internationalism
that also accommodates national identities and roles
Indicate the best answer: The authors primary purpose in the passage is to
(A) Explain some critics refusal to consider Raisin in the Sun a deliberately ironic play
(B) Suggest that ironic nuances ally Raisin in the Sun with Du Boiss and Fanons writings
(C) Analyze the fundamental dramatic conflicts in Raisin in the Sun
(D) Emphasize the inclusion of contradictory elements in Raisin in the Sun
