    The play, ?Crimes of the Heart,? written by Beth Henley, is brilliantly charming, and Henley is completely deserving of her Pulitzer-Prize for this piece. My mother suggested I read this play because she says that I am very much like one of the main characters Lenny Magrath, and she said that I would be able to relate to many parts of the story.

Pecola Breedlove suffered the most because she was the result of having others? anger dumped on her, and she herself was unable to get angry.
