Fences

Fences
By: August Wilson


The book Fences is about the struggles that many African Americans faced and still face in the 20th century. The book has characters that are struggling to get by in their lives due to hardship. So because of the hard situations that they are put in, they may have to do things that they most likely would not do if they weren't put in that situation. The book is great with helping the people who read it understand the feelings and emotions of the characters. Because the book also explains the backstories of some of the main characters you get to understand why the characters may have acted the way they do and why their personalities have come to be. We also get to see how the characters affect each other and how that influences who thy become or what happens to them in the future
