"A raisin in the sun" was seen as changing American theatre forever. Miss Hansberry forced both blacks and whites to re-examine the deferred dreams of black America. "Raisin" is about how the Younger family will spend a 10,000 dollars insurance payment it has received after its patriarch's death - and about whether the family will move into a now affordable new home in a hostile, lily-white neighbourhood. The real drama, however, is the battle for the soul and identity of Walter Lee Younger, the family's son.

"Never before, the entire history of the American theater, has so much of the truth of black people's lives been seen on the stage," observed James Baldwin shortly before A Raisin in the Sun opened on Broadway in 1959. Indeed Lorraine Hansberry's award-winning drama about the hopes and aspirations of a struggling, working-class family living on the South Side of Chicago connected profoundly with the psyche of black America--and changed American theater forever. The play's title comes from a line in Langston Hughes's poem "Harlem," which warns that a dream deferred might "dry up/like a raisin in the sun." "The events of every passing year add resonance to A Raisin in the Sun," said The New York Times. "It is as if history is conspiring to make the play a classic." This Modern Library edition presents the fully restored, uncut version of Hansberry's landmark work with an introduction by Robert Nemiroff.
