It's the late 1940's and I could visualize the setting of the New Orleans French uarter love it and hear the jazzy blues music playing thru the window as Tennessee Williams brings to life the characters of a very well built Stanley his better half Stella and her delusional whiskey drinking southern belle of a sister Blanche who is in town for an extended visitWith two women and one hot tempered suspicious man in a dinky one bedroom flat trouble starts brewing at the onset and never lets up until the ill fated end Whoever you areI have always counted on the kindness of strangers As a first time read for me the story behind A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE was a complete surprise as were the multitude of controversial subject matters often understated in presentation throughout the play but stillA powerful and emotional drama Loved it need to get my hands on a copy of the film version with Brando and Leighfast

WhoaI did not consume this play as I was intended to I mean honestly you're not supposed to read a play Tell that to any high school English teacher ever but still Tennessee Williams didn't write this like Hopefully in sixty years a girl will read this alone in her room in one sitting so she can fulfill her goal of reading a classic every month That's not his idealThat being saidTHIS MADE ME FEEL SO MUCHA play is supposed to be acted obviously Reading it leads to a less emotional rendering with less full characters in an imagined version of what is supposed to be a concrete setting It's a lesser experience like reading a screenplay Cough cough fck you JK Rowling coughAnd still this was incredible Blanche and Stella and Mitch were heart rending There's so much tension here and the revelations and the moments of climax and action are just unreal I don't even know what to say beyond whoaGuess I should've stopped this review after the first wordBottom line FANTASTIC FANTASTIC FANTASTIC This reading a classic a month thing is the best thing I'm doing this year

review A Streetcar Named Desire

A Streetcar Named DesireD fragile southern beauty whose pathetic last grasp at happiness is cruelly destroyed It shot Marlon Brando to fame in the role of Stanley Kowalski a s. Okay first of all may I just say you should see the movie before you read the book The thing about this play is that it absolutely relies on tension And that tension is absolutely there in a uality rendition of this show But it is not conveyed on page Likewise most of Blanche’s character is in her nuance in the subtext of each scene where she acts nervous and worried and in how she is framed and in her fear and turmoil In a character like this a character full of ambiguity and hurt and angst how could an on page rendition be so sympathetic How could she gain your sympathies despite her flaws The answer is that she doesn’t Until you see the movie and she breaks your fucking heartHonestly I think there is a lot to be said about this play and its connection to the downfall of Southern white life wow we have read about that a lot in AP Lit this year There is also a lot to be said about its occasionally weird gay subtext there’s some explicit text that the movie cuts because homophobia but also the fact that this is essentially a love triangle between a woman’s husband and her sister Which is something the movie plays up um kind of a lot There’s a scene framing the two sisters as Hollywood lovers and it is weird Also I’d like to point you all to the comment underneath this status stating that Stanley is a caricature of a straight man and Tenesee Williams just doesn’t understand straight men because holy shit that is the funniest thing I have ever readBut honestly I think explaining the subtext wouldn’t be the best decision either for spoiler purposes a lot of the thematic stuff is pretty easy to understand or for my mental health I am running off far too little sleep and I don’t think this review is coherent probably What I will say is that you should see the movie and then read the play and compare the two and that I really liked this It made no impact on me when I read it but it's worth the watch
