  1. When I first read this, I'd just read A Streetcar Named Desire and I got bored by the lack of pace. Recently I re-read it, and it's so moving. Basically nothing happens so why it should be so moving it's hard to say. I was close to crying a lot. But it's really good, although I think my favourite Williams play is Cat on A Hot Tin Roof
  2. I know that several BGOers have a fondness for Streetcar, so I thought it deserved a thread in our newly expanded poetry and drama forum. It's the story of Blanche Dubois, a fading would-be Southern Belle who comes to New Orleans to stay with her sister, apparently to recover from a nervous condition. It soon emerges that her circumstances are a bit more complicated than that. She finds her sister living in rather reduced circumstances, but seemingly happily married to a brutish man, Stanley Kowalski, who is immediately suspicious of Blanche. As Stanley says, "The Kowalskis and the Dubois have different notions", and a subtle war ensues for Stella's loyalty, It must have been heady stuff when it first appeared in the late 1940s!
