Our TownThe Skin of Our TeethThe Matchmaker

This omnibus volume brings together the definitive texts of three outstanding plays by one of America's most distinguished writers Thronton Wilder was eually prolific and successful as a dramatist and novelist Our Town 1938 and Th. One major thing that is pointed out in this play is that people walk through life without ever really seeing anything and this is shown on many an occasion not really being noticed until it is too late to do anything about People that are alive do not have the worries that life will be short because they are still living it They do not worry about spending each second like it was their last because it is not They live life on a day to day basis not worrying about whether or not they live it to its fullest because there will always be time The worst part is that life could end at any minute And when that person has not lived a full enough life they will have no one to blame but themselves for not appreciating it when they had it It is often said that people do not miss things until they are gone and this is one example If only people could miss it when they still had it then losing it would not be such a tragedy because they would have been happy either way I thought this was an excellent review by SHAYLYN on com my thoughts exactly
