Summary (From the publisher):

With the New York production of A Streetcar Named Desire in 1947, Tennessee Williams's reputation was established once and for all as America's leading dramatist since O'Neill.

The winner of both the Pulitzer Prize and The Drama Critics Circle Award, Streetcar is a work of great lyric power and deep, compassionate understanding. Set in New Orleans, it is one of Tennessee Williams's unsurpassed portraits of a beautiful, sensitive woman in misplaces circumstances - Blanche DuBois, whose life is undermined by fantasy and the memory of a tragic love - and the resentment and passion she arouses in her brutish brother-in-law, Stanley Kowalski.

  • "In Streetcar Williams found images and rhythms that are still part of the way we think and feel and move...In this play as in no other, Williams was able to do his particular thing, to take the fragments of his divided self and turn them into the dramatis personae of an ideal conflict." Jack Kroll, Newsweek
