Week 4 dql I think the most tense and compelling moment from quotA Raisin in the Sunquot was when Walter discovered that Willy had run off with his investment money The tone of the drama went from a somewhat serene and happy family ready to move into a quotrealquot house to complete despair and anger Walter screamed out quotThat money is made from my father39s eshquot The tension increased as the rest of the family learned that Walter had given Willy all of the remaining 6500 from the insurance check including Beneatha39s college money only to nd that Willy took the money and ran Everyone in the family was furious at Walter and his own mother began to hit him in the face The author used tone as I mentioned above to create a scene of incredible anger disappointment and frustration The style of writing also increased the tension and drama as some of the characters lines were printed in all capital letters with exclamation points The characters themselves contributed to the tension of the scene as each reacted in his or her own way to the loss of the money The plot was affected by this moment as the reader slowly begins to realize that Walter has dashed much of the family39s dream in his poor choice of investment The setting also contributed much to this tension as the family39s apartment was packed and ready to move into a house a change from the other settings in which the house was furnished Overall this drama had quite a few tense moments and in each case the author did a great job of expressing the emotion of the story through the use of plot characters style language and setting The scene described above however was probably the most tense moment of the story even more so than the ending in which the reader wonders just what choice Walter will make about moving to the new house
