Reader's note

A bright 1974 edition of Penguin Plays of Tennessee Williams! This wonderful paperback holds within it three plays: 'Sweet Bird of Youth', 'A Streetcar Named Desire', and 'The Glass Menagerie'. Writing in 1959, at about the time when Elia Kazan directed Sweet Bird of Youth on Broadway, Tennessee Williams described her first successful play as being 'about as violent as you can get on the stage. During the nineteen years since then I have only produced five plays that are not violent.' First among these he presented in London in 1948 and in which he employed every device of scenery, lighting, and music to evoke nostalgia. The following year, however, he scored one of his biggest successes with A Streetcar Named Desire, in which a woman's pathetic fantasies of primness and respectability are stripped down and violently exposed in New Orleans.
