    He is of medium height, about five feet eight or nine, and strongly, compactly built Animal joy in his being is implicit in all his movements and attitudes Since earliest manhood the center of his life has been pleasure with women, the giving and taking of it, not with weak indulgence, dependency, but with the power and pride of a richly feathered male bird among hens Branching out from this complete and s

    It is the steamy summer in New Orleans in the late 1940s Old war buddies have gone to their weekly bowling league after work Meanwhile, young brides pass the time in their two flat apartment while waiting for their husbands to return It is amidst this backdrop that begins Tennessee Williams classic play, A Streetcar Named Desire, which still stands the test of time today and became a classic film featuring Marlo

    Whoa.I did not consume this play as I was intended to I mean, honestly, you re not supposed to read a play Tell that to any high school English teacher ever, but still Tennessee Williams didn t write this like Hopefully in sixty years a girl will read this alone in her room in one sitting so she can fulfill her goal of reading a classic every month That s not his ideal.That being said.THIS MADE ME FEEL SO MUCH.A play

    Okay, first of all, may I just say you should see the movie before you read the book The thing about this play is that it absolutely relies on tension And that tension is absolutely there in a quality rendition of this show But it is not conveyed on page Likewise, most of Blanche s character is in her nuance, in the subtext of each scene where she acts nervous and worried and in how she is framed and in her fear and turmoil In a

    4.5 starsTragic, raw, and suffused with striking imagery and symbolism, this play is a must read and now one that I must also see Williams does a tremendous job of evoking the atmosphere of New Orleans during the 1940 s the music, the heat, the people The prose is lyrical and truly astonishing at times I felt as if I were a participant in each and every sceneThe sky that shows around the dim white building is a peculiarly tender blue,

    It s the late 1940 s and I could visualize the setting of the New Orleans French Quarterlove itand hear the jazzy blues music playing thru the window as Tennessee Williams brings to life the characters of a very well built Stanley, his better half Stella, and her delusional, whiskey drinking southern belle of a sister Blanche who is in town for an extended visit.With two women and one hot tempered, suspicious man in a dinky one bedroom flat,

    They told me to take a streetcar named Desire and then transfer to one called Cemeteries and ride six blocks and get off at Elysian FieldsThere is a certain high you feel when you read a classic It s not one that can be repeatable or interchangeable It attaches on to you and if it s good enough It might never leave your system Enter, our setting New Orleans in the late 1940s, post second world war and the American Dream is thick in the atmosphere Jazz a

    There s a sort of invisible thread from Madame Bovary to A Streetcar Named Desire, which in its route gets tied up in a hot whorehouse and wraps vainly around the cosmetics section of a pharmacy in the Southern United States before knotting at its terminus in New Orleans I find it almost criminal how often people mistake Blanche duBois whimsy for female frailty, for I think she is an almost unnaturally strong character far, far so than her timid sister Stella
