About this Item

First edition. This is Williams's most famous play, which won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama the year it was published. Legend has it that the audience applauded for half an hour after the debut performance ended. Williams also wrote the screenplay for the 1951 film, which garnered fame equal to (and perhaps surpassing) that of the original play with defining performances by Marlon Brando and Vivien Leigh. However, many of the more sensitive aspects of the play, such as Blanche's rape and references to homosexuality, were altered or omitted in order to comply with the film industry's censorship codes. A fine copy in printed boards with a tiny nick at the top of the spine and some light rubbing. There is no fading to the spine of the book. The dust wrapper is slightly faded on the spine and has several short, closed tears, particularly on front flap fold, else a fine example of a book that is notoriously difficult to find in such a state.
