As one of the most prolific of America's best playwrights, Lillian Hellman has achieved within her lifetime an international prestige and stature seldom attained by a contemporary playwright. This volume contains 2 extremely popular and much revived plays of Ms. Hellman, here for the first time combined in a single edition. THE LITTLE FOXES is a remarkable documentary about the New South at the turn of the century: a bitter drama that centers on the struggle within one family over the profits from a factory they want to build on their cotton-growing land. Hatred and greed mingle in this fearful portrait of selfishness and degeneracy, as the small-hearted Hubbards wrangle over money and, along the way, manage to trample whatever is left of the honor and dignity of the Old South. In ANOTHER PART OF THE FOREST, Ms. Hell man takes another look at the same family in another part of the forest, twenty years before, in the 1880s, in the Hubbard mansion in Snowden, Alabama. She shows in this equally fearful portrait how the seeds of hatred, greed and depravity which were to follow in THE LITTLE FOXES were sown and cultivated in these younger years.
