''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.
