What people say:

"...this essential collection.... Strongly recommended for all public and academic libraries, for Williams fans as well as Williams scholars." — Choice

"The addition of Tennessee Williams to the list of subjects in this distinguished series of critical essays confirms his international status among twentieth-century authors. In celebrating his achievement, the critics in this collection offer analysis rather than censure, place Williams' plays in the context of critical thought and provide directors with a basis for mounting the plays afresh." — Studies in Theatre Production
