by Tennessee Williams
Susan Myer Silton
Tennessee Williams's Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece is set in the steamy French Quarter of New Orleans during the restless years following World War II where Blanche DuBois, a fragile and neurotic woman, is on a desperate prowl for someplace in the world to call her own. After being exiled from her hometown of Laurel, Mississippi, Blanche arrives on her sister's doorstep and an electrifying battle of wills ignites between Southern belle Blanche and her working class brother-in-law Stanley Kowalski. Nerves fraying and beauty fading, Blanche is both repelled and intrigued by Stanley's primal brutishness—even as he threatens to reveal her darkest secrets and destroy her illusions.
