By Tennessee Williams

They are filled with the conception of existence because it is, and the fervour for all times because it must be, that have made The Glass Menagerie and A Streetcar Named Desire classics of the yankee theater.
Only the sort of performs (The Purification) is written in verse, yet in them all the method of personality is when it comes to poetic revelation. even if Williams is writing of derelict roomers in a brand new Orleans boarding condominium (The girl of Larkspur Lotion) or the thoughts of a venerable touring salesman (The final of My sturdy Gold Watches) or of antisocial kids (This estate is Condemned), his perception into human nature is that of the poet. He can compress the elemental that means of life—its pathos or its tragedy, its bravery or the standard of its love—into one small scene or a number of moments of dialogue.
Mr. Williams's perspectives at the position of the little theater in American tradition are contained in a stimulating essay, "Something wild...," which serves as an creation to this collection.
