  • "After Blanche Dubois moves in with her sister and brother-in-law, Stanley, she sets in motion her own journey of self-discovery."@en
  • "It is a very short list of 20th-century American plays that continue to have the same power and impact as when they first appeared - A Streetcar Named Desire is one of those plays. The story of the fading and desperate Blanche DuBois and how her sensuous and brutal brother-in-law, Stanley Kowalski, pushes her over the edge is now classic. Arthur Miller's rich perspective and lucid insights make this a unique and essential new edition of A Streetcar Named Desire. Also included are Williams' essay "The World I Live In" and a chorology of the author's life and works."
  • "Fading southern belle Blanche Dubois depends on the kindness of strangers and is adrift in the modern world. When she arrives to stay with her sister Stella in a crowded, boisterous corner of New Orleans, her delusions of grandeur bring her into conflict with Stella's crude, brutish husband Stanley."
  • "Blanche goes to New Orleans to visit her sister Stella after the family estate dwindles to nothing. She is raped and driven mad by her brutal brother-in-law."@en
  • "A Streetcar Named Desire shows a turbulent confrontation between traditional values in the American South - an old-world graciousness and beauty running decoratively to seed - set against the rough-edged, aggressive materialism of the new world. Through the vividly characterised figures of Southern belle Blanche Dubois, seeking refuge from physical ugliness in decayed gentility, and her brutal brother-in-law Stanley Kowalski, Tennessee Williams dramatises his sense of the South's past as still active and often destructive in modern America. In addition to the full text of the play, this edition contains a chronology of the playwright's life and work; an introduction giving the background to the play, a discussion of the various interpretations; notes on individual words and phrases as well as photographs from stage productions."
  • "The Pulitzer prize-winning play of a woman betrayed by love. Illustrated with scenes from the New York, London, and Paris productions."@en
  • "Contains the text of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play in which the aging Southern belle Blanche DuBois loses her fragile grip on reality after an encounter with her brutish brother-in-law."@en
  • "A repressed widow visits her sister in New Orleans and is abused and eventually driven mad by her brother-in-law."@en
  • "This definitive new edition of Tennessee Williams' classic play includes a new introduction by Arthur Miller, Williams' essay "The World I Live In," and a brief chronology of the author's life."@en
  • "Shows the decline of the land-owming Southern artictocracy and sexual frustrations."@en
  • "Blanche Dubois, a haggard and fragile southern beauty finds her pathetic last grasp at happiness cruelly destroyed in large part by her brother-in-law Stanley Kowlaski."@en
  • "A young widow warped by a tragic marriage comes to live with her sister and brother-in-law in New Orleans where further violence causes a mental breakdown. Music, 11 scenes, 6 men, 6 women, 2 interiors, 1 exterior."@en
  • "Literature Online includes the KnowledgeNotes student guides, a unique collection of critical introductions to major literary works.

  • "Repressed widow visits sister in New Orleans after family estate dwindles to nothing. She is raped and eventually driven mad by her brutal brother-in-law."
  • "A streetcar named desire is one of the most remarkable plays of our time. It created an immortal woman in the character of Blanche DuBois, the haggard and 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 sweat-shirted barbarian, the crudely sensual brother in law who precipitated Blanche's tragedy."@en
  • "A southern belle on the run from her past seeks refuge with her sister in New Orleans. But she finds herself locked in a battle of wills with her crude, volatile brother-in-law."@en
  • "This is one of Tennessee Williams most famous plays. It introduces us to the virile and explosive character of Stanley Kowalski and his wife Stella, in the setting of a steamy New Orleans summer. Stella's sister, Blanche Dubois, comes for a visit and her torid sexuality and tainted past adds heat and lust to an already explosive family picture."@en
