'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.
