Description

Tennessee Williams' plays are performed around the world, and are staples of the standard American repertory. His famous portrayals of women engage feminist critics, and as America's leading gay playwright from the repressive postwar period, through Stonewall, to the growth of gay liberation, he represents an important and controversial figure for queer theorists. Gross and his contributors have included all of his plays, a chronology, introduction and bibliography.

Reviews

"Robert Gross and his contributors have made an important contribution to Williams scholarship and merit a round of applause for their production of the mutiple-gendered selves of America's greatest playwright-showman." -- Philip C. Kolin, Modern Drama
