Book Description :

The landmark play A Raisin in the Sun takes its title from a Langston Hughes poem which poses the questions "What happens to a dream deferred? Does it dry up like a raisin in the sun?" Focusing on a working-class African-American family in Chicago who save enough to purchase either a business in a black neighborhood or a house in a white neighborhood, the plays exposes issues of racism and gender as the women of the family make important decisions that push against both racial and gender lines. This volume discusses gender in the play, looking at how the female characters fight both racism and male chauvinism, how the play is dominated by strong female characters, and how characters resist the stereotype of the emasculating female. The book also presents contemporary perspectives on race and feminism in the twenty-first century. Contributors include Barbara Ehrenreich, Jewelle L. Gomez, and Sharon Friedman.

Quicklets: Learn More. Read Less. Lorraine Hansberry was born May 19, 1930 and grew up, like the characters in A Raisin in the Sun, in Chicago's South Side. She attended the University of Wisconsin at Madison, but left in 1950 before graduating. She then moved to New York City where she began working as a writer. A Raisin in the Sun is her most well known work. It was first produced on Broadway in 1959, and its success made Hansberry the first African American playwright to win the Best Play of the Year Award from the New York Drama Critics. Hansberry's promising career was cut short, however, when she died January 12, 1965 of pancreatic cancer. A Raisin in the Sun has become a landmark in American literature and drama. James Baldwin gave high praise to the work, writing that never before in the entire history of the American theater had so much of the truth of black people's lives been seen on the stag. First produced in 1959 when Hansberry was only 29 years old, it won the Best Play Award of the New York Drama Critics. It has since been adapted for film, television, and musical theater, and has been performed thousands of times around the United States, as well as on stages around the world in over 30 languages. Along with the popular and critical acclaim of the original stage production, these various adaptations of A Raisin in the Sun have been nominated for multiple Tony Awards, Cannes Festival Awards, and several Golden Globe awards.

Book Description :

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A Raisin in the Sun is a play by Lorraine Hansberry that debuted on Broadway in 1959. The title comes from the poem Harlem also known as A Dream Deferred by Langston Hughes. The story is based upon a black family's experiences in the Washington Park Subdivision of Chicago's Woodlawn neighborhood. A Raisin in the Sun was the first play written by a black woman to be produced on Broadway, as well as the first play with a black director Lloyd Richards on Broadway. Waiting for the curtain to rise on opening night, Hansberry and producer, Phillip Rose, did not expect the play to be a success, for it had already received mixed reviews from a preview audience the night before, A Raisin in the Sun portrays a few weeks in the life of the Youngers, an African-American family living on the South Side of Chicago in the 1950s. When the play opens, the Youngers are about to receive an insurance check for $10,000. This money comes from the deceased Mr. Younger's life insurance policy. Each of the adult members of the family has an idea as to what he or she would like to do with this money.

Book Description :

Charles J. Shields, the New York Times bestselling author of Mockingbird, masterfully delivers the moving story of the life of the woman behind A Raisin in the Sun, the most widely anthologized, read, and performed play of the American stage. Written when she was just twenty-eight, Lorraine Hansberry’s landmark A Raisin in the Sun is listed by the National Theatre as one of the 100 most significant works of the twentieth century. Hansberry was the first black woman to have a play performed on Broadway, and the first black and youngest American playwright to win a New York Critics' Circle Award. Yet so much of her life has escaped public knowledge: the influence of her upper class background, her fight for peace and nuclear disarmament, the reason why she embraced Communism during the Cold War, and her dependence on her white husband—her best friend, critic, and promoter. Many of the identity issues she struggled about class, sexuality, and race with are relevant and urgent today. This dramatic telling of a passionate life— a very American life through self-reinvention— uses interviews with close friends in politics and theater, privately held correspondence, and deep research to reconcile old mysteries, and to raise new questions about a life not fully described until this, the authoritative biography of one of the twentieth century’s most admired playwrights, Lorraine Hansberry.
