Great Introduction to Sweet Bird of Youth by Williams, explaining the autobiographical and violent nature of much of his work. ( )

I enjoyed these this collection. I'd never read or seen Streetcar before, and it was not at all what I was expecting. Honestly I found the whole thing pretty disturbing, but very well done and realistic. The Glass Menagerie was my favorite, as it was least ...troubled? and I related to the sister the most; it was also more interesting in that it was based on his own family life. I want to read more of Williams' work after this little collection. ( )

=============================================================

He was a born dramatist as few are ever born. Whatever he put on paper, superb or superfluous, glorious or gaudy, could not fail to be electrifyingly actable. He could not write a dull scene… Tennessee Williams will live as long as drama itself.

If these words came from a critic, I would not pay any special attention to them. But they did come from no other but Peter Shaffer himself, the author of Equus (1973) and Amadeus (1979), the closest British approximation to Tennessee – at least in terms of popularity. Only after finishing the three plays in this volume did I realise the hidden wisdom in Mr Shaffer's words.

There is something especially compelling about the plays of Tennessee Williams. They are hot and cool at the same time, hot because they invariably deal with sex in one way or another, and cool because they never degenerate into cheap pornography. They often contain a great deal of (usually mental but sometimes physical) violence, but they always remain stylishly written mixtures of fiercely dramatic dialogue and evocative stage directions, both regularly adorned by marvellous poetic flights. They are dark, brooding, disturbing and superbly crafted pieces of drama. They deal with human nature in a profound and uncompromising manner.

The three plays in this Penguin Classics edition may be seen as a very abridged version of Tennessee's most successful years. In March 1945 The Glass Menagerie was the first massive success on Broadway for the dramatist who had just turned 34. It ran for the impressive 563 performances. When A Streetcar Named Desire took Broadway by storm in December 1947 and lasted for 855 performances in the course of two years, everyone knew that this fellow was here to stay.

During the 1950s Tennessee had a string of successes, though none of them was measured by such an amazing run as Streetcar. Still, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1955) and Sweet Bird of Youth (1959), with 694 and 375 performances respectively, at least came close. But then Tennessee's constant anxiety about the transitory nature of his success started becoming reality. He continued to write plays until the end of his life more than twenty years later. But during the 1960s and 1970s – The Night of the Iguana (1961) was his last Broadway hit – he had to put up with lots of negative criticism, lacklustre first nights and embarrassingly short runs.

Enough preliminary rambling. Let us have a look at the plays.

Spoilers ahead!
