Format: Taschenbuch
Tennessee Williams's masterfully written drama explores the extremes of fantasy versus reality, the Old South versus the New South, and primitive desire versus civilized restraint. Its meager 142 page spine is no indication of the complexity and significance that Williams achieves in his remarkable work. A strong aspect of the play is Williams's amazingly vivid portrayal of desperate and forsaken characters who symbolize and presumably resolve his battles between extremes. He created and immortal woman in the character of Blanche DuBois, the haggard and fragile southern beauty whose pathetic last grasp at happiness is cruelly destroyed. She represents fantasy for her many outrageous attempts to elude herself, and she likewise represents the Old South with only her manners and pretentions remaining after the foreclosure of her family's estate. The movie version of A Streetcar Named Desire shot Marlon Brando to fame as Stanley Kowalski, a sweat-shirted barbarian and crudely sensual brother-in-law who precipitated Blanche's tragedy. He symbolizes unrestrained desire with the recurring animal motif that follows him throughout the play. A third major character, Stella Kowalski, acts as mediator between her constantly conflicting husband and older sister. She magnifies the New South in her renounce of the Old pretentions by marrying a blue collar immigrant. Conflicts between these and other vividly colorful characters always in light of the cultural New Orleans backdrop provide a reader with a lasting impression and an awe for Williams's impeccable style and intense dialogue.

Format: Taschenbuch
It's amazing how much of its original power this play has maintained even though by all accounts it should be dated by now. After all, we have come far, have we not, from the south in those backwards years? Or have we? This was one of the works that we read in my AP English class this year and I was surprised how well a group of 11th graders were able to identify with the sexual tension, the deceptions, the characters and the plot. Blanche's hopeless situation is still quite poignant and Stanley's animal magnetism is something all of them could relate to. After reading the play countless times (and seeing various performances), I can say that this short play packs quite a wallop. Williams fits in a myriad of human emotions into this one short play. If for some reason you missed this one, read it and then rent the movie with Marlon Brando. With memorable characters like Stanley, Stella, Blanch and Mitch who have made their way into our everyday vocubulary, and a sizzling dialogue, it's a lasting work. The movie Body Heat is the closest modern parallel I can think of in terms of setting and mood.

Format: Taschenbuch
Elysian Fields in New Orleans, sweaty, sultry, and steaming, embodies the perfect setting for A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams, a play centering on the themes of desire, domination, and destruction. Blanche DuBois epitomized the fading Southern belle, so obsessed with her aging beauty that she refuses to be seen in the glaring light and invents a "make-believe world" where her values endure. Stanley Kowalski represents the brutish, ape-like animal who thrives on women, alcohol, poker, and bowling. Stella Kowalski portrays the gentle sister and wife, torn between her worship of her husband and her loyalty to her fragile sister, Blanche. The action begins as Blanche arrives unexpectedly at the Kowalski's apartment. Immediately, the reader can observe the sexual tension between Blanche and Stanley. The play focuses on the conflict between these two characters, symbolizing the struggle between the gentility of the old Southern values and the brute force of the new, Northern values and also the battle between the nonconformist and conventional society. These themes so often surfaced in Williams's life that before perusing the play, the reader should scan a biography of Tennessee. The reader would be amazed at the incredible similarity between the family and acquaintances of Williams and the characters in his plays. Also, after finshing the play, the reader should rent the 1951 film version, which won the Best Picture Oscar and showcased vibrant, memorable performances by Marlon Brando and Vivien Leigh, offering a different, more happy ending to the drama. I highly recommend this play not only for its beautiful prose, but for its lasting presence in written classics and its creation of unforgettable characters to which all can relate.Lesen Sie weiter... ›

Von YNA am 20. Januar 2015
Format: Kindle Edition
We were requested to read the play „A streetcar named desire“ (1947) by Tennessee Williams as part of the English curriculum. Coincidentally, I have been already introduced to Williams’ bizarre and unique world by none other than my mother.
A few years back, she found in our quite reasonably-sized library the play I would come to appreciate and fully understand only much later on.
I read it and was fascinated by the extravagance of Lady Blanche DuBois, intimidated by lower-class Stanley Kowalski and as torn between these two contrasting characters as gentle Miss Stella DuBois-Kowalski.
Reading the play many years later again, I discovered it anew with a different perception and love for setting, plot and characters.
We see the development of the group dynamics and how the changes also disturb the relationship between the main characters. It is not a typical love triangle, but rather a fight for dominance, superiority and approval.
While reading, I always had to distinguish between bitter truths and sweet lies, harsh realities and untrue conceptions. Much like Blanche’s view of the world, not acknowledging the cruel and the bad, still living in the past’s glamorous and long since outdated traditions, I also did not come to realize what was happening in the play and what Tennessee Williams’ intentions truly were when reading the book at a younger, more innocent age. Which was probably a good thing.
What came as shocking to me, was the revelation of Blanche’s husband’s true sexuality, or rather the answer to why he’d committed suicide. Thus the state of Blanche’s mind and what drove her to such a distorted perception of reality became clearer to me.
