Synopsis: G. K. Hall's three series of critical essays give comprehensive coverage of major authors worldwide and throughout history. The full range of literary traditions and schools is represented. Each new volume is carefully conceived and developed to fill a gap in the literary criticism available today. Volume editors are established authorities on the lives, works, and critical receptions of their subjects. They are uniquely qualified to ensure the spectrum of critical controversies, trends, and techniques inspired by their subjects in their own countries and abroad, in their own eras and today. Each volume features: an introduction which provides the reader with a lucid overview of criticism from its beginnings illuminating controversies, evaluating approaches, and sorting out the schools of thought the most influential reviews and the best of reprinted scholarly essays a section devoted exclusively to reviews and reactions by the subject's contemporaries, original essays, new translations, and revisions commissioned especially for the series previously unpublished materials such as interviews, lost letters, and manuscript fragments a bibliography of the subject s writings and interviews a name and subject index Few people are indifferent to Tennessee Williams's gripping dramas, which include "The Glass Menagerie," "A Streetcar Named Desire," and "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof." Some deplore his preoccupation with sex and violence while others praise his determined exploration of desire and compulsion; some hail his contribution to theatrical art while others suggest that he sacrificed his talent for popular success. This comprehensive volume includes contemporary reviews of each play,commentary on his life and work, a chronology of his plays and short story collections, and an introduction tracing the scholarly work done on Williams to date.
