The two plays collected in this volume represent Genet's first attempts to analyze the mores of a bourgeois society he had previously been content simply to vilify. In The Maids, two domestic workers, deeply resentful of their inferior social position, try to revenge themselves against society by destroying their employer. When their attempt to betray their mistress's lover to the police fails and they are in danger of being found out, they dream of murdering Madame, little aware of the true power behind their darkest fantasy. In Deathwatch, two convicts try to impress a third, who is on the verge of achieving legendary status in criminal circles. But neither realizes the lengths to which they will go to gain respect or that, in the end, nothing they can do--including murder--will get them what they are searching for.… (mere)

The plays were definitely really good and I would love love love to see them performed, but I think one of the things that amused me most was Sartre's introduction. He was of course an admirer of Genet's work and he and a few influential others kept the man out of jail for the latter part of his life because they said Genet was a genius, but from the introduction it totally seems like Sartre's favourite thing about Genet was that he was gay. So avant-garde and anti-establishment! Oh, Sartre. ( )

Genet' "The Maids" is an intense theater experience on paper or live. ( )

An analytical view of the bourgoisie existentalist drama most sublime :) ( )

These two plays by Jean Genet both deal with themes of murder and subtle homoeroticism. However, it is the former story, The Maids, that is most dazzling as an examination of envy, control, and murder. The characters are so wrought by mania and the line between reality and fantasy is so blurred that the reader is sucked into the madness of the two sisters plotting to kill their mistress. The same amount of tension is present in Deathwatch, but is is harder to empathize with the characters. Together though, this volume of existential drama is unable to be dismissed. Highly engrossing and thought provoking. ( )
