Two Maids, tragic and exasperated dregs of society, struggle every minute with their plainness, their vulgarity and their dirt (things that 'beautiful', 'gentle' and 'good' Madame impose to them) till the end of the play when they reach a sense of catharsis, they fly freely far away from the hell of the world. The two maids of the myth express the thought of the writer himself: Genet imagines a better place in the society and wishes to release himself from the anxiety that people caused him. The role of the play is his own accusation of society, which had been unfair to him and despised him. The Madame that the two maids are serving is the symbol of the world of the unaffectionate people who according to Genet they must die. Around this thought and the passion for revenge the myth of the play is woven. An outcast in life, the writer, likes and feels compassion for his equals while he hates those who harm him. The whole play hides a tragic grandeur: the refusing of Man to be enslaved.
