Tennessee Williams is one of the most popular and important American playwrights of the twentieth century. He is best known for his "Southern Gothic" style, which often portrayed the struggles of old-world Southerners trying to adjust to modern society. In A Student's Guide to Tennessee Williams, the life and work of Williams are examined, offering accessible insight for young readers. Each work is placed in historical and biographical context, with special emphasis placed on curriculum-related works The Glass Menagerie, A Streetcar Named Desire, and Cat On a Hot Tin Roof, in addition to many other lesser-known works.
