Reviews for A Streetcar Named Desire
A Streetcar Named LIFE
Tennessee Williams explores, once again, the complexities of women in this thrilling and deep drama.
Blanche DuBois takes a break from her life and pays a visit to her sister Stella and her husband in New Orleans. There, Blanche will deal not only with her own problems but also with her sister's marital troubles and what the early 20th century society regarded as "proper" for both single and married women.
With a fierce social critique, Williams manages to create one of the best and most interesting female characters of the last century, comparable only to other great literary heroins such as Lady Chatterley and Madame Bovary. In fact, the greatness of this character has recently attracted the attention of two Academy Award-winning actresses (Rachel Weisz and Cate Blanchett) who could not help to portrait the brilliant Blanche in two different productions, in London and in NYC.
"A Streetcar Named Desire" makes an amazing and deep, yet easy, reading not only for women but anyone interested in good literature, classic works, drama or, to put it simply, life in general. by Elena
