...fences serve as metaphors for protection for oneself and one’s family. Wilson portrays black people as family-centered people. In particular, Rose wants to fence in her loved ones. Bono tells his friend Troy: “Some people build fences to keep people out...and other people build fences to keep people in. Rose wants to hold on to you all. She loves you” (2.1.32). The meaning of Rose’s fixation on the fence signifies love for her family. Her love for them shapes all her decisions in life, which is why Troy’s infidelity breaks her heart, and yet, she manages to stay whole for her family.

...Fences. This essay compares the two plays, Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller and Fences by August Wilson. This comparison is done using Arthur Miller's definition of modern tragedy as a guide. In "Tragedy and the Common Man" (Miller 1200), Miller wrote, "I think the tragic feeling is evoked in us when we are in the presence of a character who is ready to lay down his life, if need be, to secure one thing - his sense of personal dignity." Both plays are tragedies. This thesis states that people of character and calculated thoughts may face tragic consequences in their persistent pursuit of their ideals. Anton states Aristotle's definitions of thought... The tragic figures in Death of a Salesman and...

...Fences – Comparison of Characters Introduction This essay would come out with a comparison of the central characters of the two plays: “Death of a Salesman” by Arthur Miller and “Fences”, which was penned down by August Wilson.

In both the plays, these characters, Willy in “Death of a Salesman” and Troy of “Fences” have negative shades, for they not just... are obsessed with the...

History of horse breeding During the Renaissance, horses were bred not only for war, but for haute ecole riding, derived from the most athletic movements required of a war horse, and popular among the elite nobility of the time. Breeds such as the Lipizzan were developed from Spanish-bred horses for this purpose, and also became the preferred mounts of cavalry officers...
