The title A Raisin in the Sun refers to a poem whose first line begins, "what happens to a dream deferred". Of course, the answer is that it withers on the vine and becomes a raisin. So, understanding that, then, it is easy to see how this would apply to the Younger family as their dreams are put on hold by the greed and lack of consideration from one among them.
