Who was Karl Lindner in A Raisin in the Sun?
Karl Lindner was a representative from the Clybourne Park Improvement Association, and he went to the Younger's apartment to tell them that he'll offer them more money for the house than they spent because the neighborhood doesn't like the fact that they're black, they're scared of them.

Because there is a poem called both "Harlem" or "A Dream Deferred" which compares a dream to a raisin in the son. The poem is by Langston Hughes, I think
Grapes are turned into raisins by drying them out in the sunlight, but if you leave the raisin in the sun for too long, it will get too dry. There are social forces which seem… to dry out the human spirit as well, like a rasin left too long in the sun.
No, I believe that the themes in a Raisin in the Sun are timeless. Racism (not just against blacks) still exists, as does assimilation. Poverty and a family's struggles aren't… a thing of the past, they are still part of the world today. And the want to improve the lives of ourselves and our family are something we all think about all the time.
A Raisin in the Sun, by Lorraine Hansbury, takes place in a small, battered apartment in an all-black neighborhood in Chicago. The apartment the Younger family- the protagonis…ts- live in is "won over by weariness" and "would be comfortable and well-ordered if it were not for a number of indesctructable contradictions to this state of being." The Youngers, especially Ruth, are desperate to move from their shoddy and over-stuffed apartment to a real house, but a variety of factors limit their ability to do so. Thusly, the living conditions are, indeed, livable, but not enjoyable. The Youngers mostly just survive in their home, cramped, overwhelmed, and down-trodden, their dreams quashed in reality.

Ruth faints because she is pregnant and works a lot but doesn't get enough sleep, she also doesn't eat enough either.
Well I wouldn't leave one out. That's food and you could have ants crawling all over it.
They don't mention Walter's birthday
the sun represents a sun. But the title A Raisin in the sun is actually a poem. By Langston Hughes What happens to a dream deferred? Does it dry up Like a raisin in the s…un? or fester like a sore- And then run? Does it stink like rotten meat? Or crust and sugar over- Like a syrupy sweet? Maybe it just sags like a heavy load. Or does it explode? -Langston Hughes, "Harlem" well that's where the title comes from. need any more help just ask me.
Mr. Lindner offers the Younger family some monetary compensation so that the Youngers do not move into the new, white neighborhood.
