Analysis of Suzan-Lori Parks Topdog/ underdogName:Institution:Analysis of Suzan-Lori Parks` “Topdog/ underdog”Prompt 3: The Message of the PlaySuzan-Lori Park`s play “Topdog/Underdog” is about the live s of two African-American brothers in their early thirties, who gain money from hustling ‘three card` games (Monte). The two brothers, Lincoln and Booth have become rivals of each other, in particular, the younger one (Booth) is very jealous of the elder (Lincoln), as he so bad wants to attain a level of social and economic status his brother once had because of playing ‘Monte`. Booth is discontent with the life they are currently living, he is a common street thief while Lincoln works as Abraham Lincoln`s impersonator in an arcade, where people get to fake assassinating the historical figure for some charge. This is despite him (Lincoln) being a skilled card player of ‘Monte` and a former con artist. The two also share a room in a dilapidated boarding house.

Cause its bullshit and I know it. I seen how it cracked them up and I ain`t going there. (Parks, 1999. p72)The relationship between the two brothers in the play is both complex and interesting. They often argue and insult each other, betray and swindle each other, but still find time to offer each other support, enjoyment and or encouragement. Lincoln even reaches a point of helping hi brother learn a few tricks of playing three card Monte. He explains to him that "There`s 2 parts to throwing thuh cards… Both parts are fairly complicated. Thuh moves and the grooves, thuh talk and thuh walk, the patter and the pitter pat, thuh rap and thuh flap: what yr doing with yr mouth and what yr doing with yr hands" (79). Their parents abandoned them at a young age an...
