Some literary conflicts take the form of acharacter struggling to overcome fear,addiction, emotional damage or other cripplingpersonal issue. In many stories, the protagonist battles an unjustelement of government or culture. Conflict: Is an inherent incompatibility between the objectives of two or more characters or forces.Conflict creates tension and interest in a storyby adding doubt as to the outcome.

Ronnie constantly bickering and hurling insults at Benjamin and Benjamin being demeaning and showing off in his conversations to Ronnie."Why don't you go back home and race bullfrogs, or whatever it is you do..." (Hwang, 1151)"You probably call yourself, "Oriental," right? Maybe I can help you. (Hwang, 1153) Ronnie not being willing to accept his Chinese heritage willingly."Sure, I'm Chinese. But folks like you act like that means something. Like all of a sudden, you know who I am." (Hwang, 1553) Benjamin being told he can only be seen as being a white person even though he was adopted by Chinese parents."Well, you can't judge my race by my genetic heritage." (Hwang, 1153) In this play by David Henry Hwang, we meet two characters; Benjamin, a white guy who is looking for a specific address in Chinatown and Ronnie, the Chinese street performer Benjamin ends up asking for directions.They both make unclear assumptions about each other pertaining to their culture and color of their skin early on and are later educated on how they both prefer to be viewed and that their identity is not what it seems. This play has all forms of conflict. Some being external and some being internal. Although I believe in the end both characters have a greater understanding towards how they both view themselves and the identities they prefer to be recognized as, no real change is seen betweeneither Benjamin or Ronnie.
