Fences is not the name of an August Wilson play simply because the fence built in Maxson’s backyard is a major plot point. Instead, fence structures affect the lives of the characters in both symbolic and real ways, symbolizing the ties and ruptures in relationships that take place in the backyard (Lowe, 2020). Rose’s desire to build barriers adds more depth to her character, as she sees fences as useful and important things. Bono noted that Rose wanted to build a fence to keep her loved ones inside. The fence reflects Rose’s love for her, and Rose’s desire for the fence shows that she represents care and affection. Fence, on the other hand, irritated Troy and Corey, who reluctantly worked to finish Rose’s project. Plus, Bono said, some people see fences as barriers that drive them away. According to Bono, Troy betrayed Ross and drove Ross away from him. Just like he has no obligation to his marriage, Troy has no obligation to complete the fence. Only in the show’s final scene, with Troy dead and the family reunited, does the barrier seem complete. In the end, the integrity of the fence represents the strength of the Maxson family and, ironically, of the man who separated them but ultimately brought them together in death (Frank, 2020). continue…
The invisible but powerful fences that created the circumstances for the Maxon family in Wilson’s Fences are systemic racism and poverty. These two issues have been persistent and pervasive across many generations, trapping individuals like Troy Maxson in a cycle of struggle and preventing his family from achieving prosperity. The fact that Troy is an African-American man living in a predominantly white society adds to these challenges, creating additional invisible boundaries that limit his opportunities.
Troy is referring to how he feels the world has given him a limited set of options, because of racism and poverty. He believes that, no matter what decisions he makes in life, he will only ever achieve a certain level of success or failure due to these external factors.
Cory is more like Troy than Lyons. Cory has many of the same fears and doubts that Troy had as a young man, such as feeling trapped by circumstance and struggling to define his identity against oppressive forces. While Lyons may understand these things on an intellectual level, Cory experiences them viscerally like Troy did at his age
At the beginning of Wilson’s Fences, I felt some sympathy for Troy but also frustration at his stubbornness and refusal to take responsibility for his actions. As the play progresses and we learn more about Troy’s past, however, my feelings towards him changed to respect and admiration. His story resonated with me in a way that made me understand why he acted out the way he did.
The protagonist in Wilson’s Fences is Troy Maxson. He wants nothing more than to provide a better life for his family and be respected by society despite all the odds stacked against him. He is constantly fighting against racism and poverty throughout the play, as well as trying to make up for past mistakes in order to give Cory a chance at a brighter future
17. Cory joining the military at the end of Troy’s play symbolizes a commitment to continue his father’s legacy and pursue a better life for himself and his family.
18. My play would be about growing up in my hometown of South Lake Tahoe, California, exploring its beauty and culture while navigating my own identity as I matured into adulthood. It would focus on how being part of this small mountain community has shaped me as an individual, teaching me lessons that have served as great foundations for both personal growth and resilience through difficult times.
