In my opinion this play has a few themes The first theme Do not underestimate people Hal and Claire did not believe Catherine when she said she wrote the Proof because she did not have a college degree Since the handwriting looked like Roberts writing they thought he had written it Catherine was underestimated Hal and Claire neglected to look at the fact that Catherine had the same math ability as her Dad Robert She did not need a degree All she needed to write the Proof was what her Dad taught her and her own math talent The second theme has to do with the importance of family This play reminded me of my wife and her Dad They are both very similar and they have great admiration and respect for each other the way Catherine and her Dad did My father-in-law suffers from diabetes and high blood pressure My wife is always making sure he is well-taken care of and is getting plenty of rest In fact she is always telling her Dad to rest in the same manner Catherine tells her Dad I know that if my father-in-law were bed ridden my wife would be there at his side I also know that if my father-in-law had done something great my wife would not feel as if she were in his shadow In my opinion - based on a comparison to the relationship between my wife and her father - I do not think Catherine feels overshadowed by her Dad I think Catherine is an unselfish person who simply wants to help her Dad in his time of need In Emily Dickinsons poem Im nobody Who are you the girl seems to enjoy being anonymous I think in a certain way Catherine enjoys being anonymous as well First at the end of the play she says that her Proof does not flow as smoothly as her fathers work did It
