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 play’s 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 play’s thematic conflicts as mere confusion, contradiction, or eclecticism. Isaacs, for example, cannot easily reconcile Hansberry’s intense concern for her race with her ideal of human reconciliation. But the play’s complex view of Black self-esteem and human solidarity as compatible is no more “contradictory” than DuBois’ famous, well- considered ideal of ethnic self-awareness coexisting with human unity, or Fanon’s emphasis on an ideal internationalism that also accommodates national identities and roles.
The author of the passage would probably consider which of the following judgments to be most similar to the reasoning of the highlighted critics?

A) The world is certainly flat; therefore, the person proposing to sail around it is unquestionably foolhardy
B) Radioactivity cannot be directly perceived; therefore, a scientist could not possibly control it in a laboratory.
C) The painter of this picture could not intend it to be funny; therefore, its humor must result from a lack of skill.
D) Traditional social mores are beneficial to culture; therefore, anyone who deviates from them acts destructively.
E) Filmmakers who produce documentaries deal exclusively with facts; therefore, a filmmaker who reinterprets particular events is misleading us.

[Reveal] Spoiler: OA
C


Select and indicate a sentence in the passage in which the author provides examples that reinforce an argument against a critical response cited earlier in the passage.

In the context in which it appears, "realization" most nearly means

A) understanding
B) accomplishment
C) depiction
D) recognition
E) discovery

Explanation

1) The other choices are out of scope. Only C fits the ball park. The irony of the author derives from her not deep knowledge of the argument at stake.

2) The last sentence creates the perfect contrast to the claims of the critics made by Hansberry

3) B is the best. In the context, incomplete realization means that all the goals are not fully realized.

Replying to a private message.

In the third questions, the synonym of realization in the context is accomplishment (B).

Hansberry does not refute completely the ideal, the cause of the American dream, actually, all people might become rich and wealthy both morally and physically.

Rather she has a dual opinion or standing point on this, a dichotomy: it is true that she accepts the American dream itself and the targets it arrived, BUT at the same time she says that it does not fully realize, pick up, arrived, accomplish to its full goal (whatever it is THE goal of the American dream).

The vision of the American dream does not get the target 100%. As such, it did not accomplish its goal, fully.

Hope now is more clear

Could anyone please elaborate answer of the question 1. How it is been matched to the analysis by the critics about the thematic conflicts to be a mere confusion, contradiction, or eclecticism?

Those are distractin words. The core of the question and therefore C is the answer is this excerpt from the passage

Quote:

Lack of an intentional irony means lacks skills in that regards.

Hope now is clear
