These six plays span nearly twenty years of theatre and display the range of Lillian Hellman's dramatic gifts. The Children's Hour (1934), her first play, was considered shocking at the time; it concerns the devastating effects of a child's malicious charge of lesbianism against two of her teachers. Days to Come (1936) is about the tragic consequences of strike-breaking in a small Midwestern community. The Little Foxes (1939) and Another Part of the Forest (1946) together constitute a chilling study of the financial and psychological conflicts within the Hubbards, a wealthy and rapacious Southern family. Watch on the Rhine (1941), the story of how fascism affects an American family and the refugees they harbor, won the New York Drama Critics Circle Award. The Autumn Garden (1951) is a poignant yet humorous drama set at a summer resort near New Orleans.… (mais)

Wow, Lillian Hellman does NOT hold up well. With the exception of The Little Foxes, which I still enjoyed, all of the plays in this collection were dated and pretty disappointing. (The Children's Hour has its moments, though.) ( )

As a collection of plays, this is a work worth looking into. Watch on the Rhine and Children's Hour stand above the rest, I feel, but all of them are good powerful works. Hellman's tone is constant throughout--she deals with serious issues, stereotypes and prejudices, familial promises, feelings and compromises. The characters here come across as real, though are in some cases perhaps a bit dated--but, in the end, this is necessary for her themes to come across as they often deal with the passage of time in America. I think Watch on the Rhine especially is effective even on the page, but I'd say all these are worth reading even for a contemporary reader, particularly one who wants to understand more about where we've come from, and for one who can appreciate the most subtle of dramas, and the most subtle tragedy at times as well.
