I don't know what happened with this book but I was thoroughly underwhelmed except for The Glass MenagerieAs I said in my review of The Night of the Iguana and Other Stories Tennessee Williams writes about broken people and people on the fringes of society Many of them are also rebels who do not subscribe to the moral code of the middle class which dictates that all drinking drugs and sex can be carried out under the cover of darkness protected by the veneer of respectability Chance Wayne of Sweet Bird of Youth and Blanche Dubois of the famous A Streetcar Named Desire are examples of these moral outcasts Laura Wingfield of The Glass Menagerie is of a different species altogether extremely introvert one act of involuntary betrayal is enough to break her as her collection of glass animalsI could muster a certain level of sympathy for Blanche the classic tragic heroine Her fall from grace as the feudal society which sustains her fades away is very clearly drawn As the play proceeds and her duplicity gets revealed we find ourselves not condemning her but rather feeling sorry for the inevitable descent into darkness of a person who has always relied on the kindness of strangers for sustenance However Chance left me cold as also did the play a jumbled cacophony of violent emotions Maybe it does better on the stage Some plays are not meant to be readThe tragedy of Laura however is exuisitely drawn in one of the most touching pieces of drama that I have ever read The Glass Menagerie stands out

So I enjoyed this bookplay It was the first time in a long time that I sat down and used my eyeballs Thankfully vacation and pool time gave me a chance to finish this buddy read about 4 months lateI enjoyed the dialog and the setting I haven't read a play in forever but it was fun to get the off stage descriptions I felt like I could seehearsmell all the stuff that was going on I never saw the movie so this was all new to meThe one thing I was totally surprised at was the rape scene at the end Um this is kind of a big deal and it've never heard anything about it ever Even I had heard people yell out Stella before but no one wants to talk about how Stan rapes his sister in law then has her thrown in the looney bin What
