  • "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."
  • "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

  • "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."
  • "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."
  • ""Tennessee Williams's atmospheric play of 1959 about Chance Wayne, the one-time heart-throb of his hometown who returns hoping to break into the movies and find the girl of his youth. Accompanied by faded movie star Alexandra Del Lago, grieving in a haze of drugs and alcohol for her lost youth, he discovers that time will shortly catch up with him and wreak a terrible retribution for his past actions. In its exploration of corruption, ageing and the effects of time, the play offers a magnificent study of the dark side of the American Dream."--Cover p. [4]."
  • "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."
  • "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 masseur-gigolo takes a has-been actress from Hollywood to his home in the South, believing that her money and faded glamour might help him achieve a life-long dream."@en
  • "Tennessee williams knew how to tell a good tale, and this steamy, wrenching play about a faded movie star, Alexandra Del Lago, and about the lost innocence and corruption of Chance Wayne, reveals the dark side of the American dreams of youth and fame. Distinguished American playwright Lanford Wilson has written an insightful Introduction for this edition. Also included are Williams' original Foreword to the play; the one-act play "The Enemy: Time - the germ for the full-length version, published here for the first time; an essay by noted Tennessee Williams scholar, Colby H. Kullman; and a chronology of the author's life."@en

Schmidt, lighting by John Gleason, costumes by Nancy Potts, music composed by Cathy MacDonald, sound by Gary Harris, directed by Jules Irving."@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."
  • "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
  • "Literature Online includes the KnowledgeNotes student guides, a unique collection of critical introductions to major literary works. These high-quality, peer-reviewed academic resources are tailored to the needs of literature students and serve as a complement to the guidance provided by lecturers and seminar teachers."
  • "Looking for a benchmark in movie acting? Breakthrough performances don't come much more electrifying than Marlon Brando's animalistic turn as Stanley Kowalski in A Streetcar Named Desire. Sweaty, brutish, mumbling, yet with the balanced grace of a prizefighter, Brando storms through the role--a role he had originated in the Broadway production of Tennessee Williams's celebrated play. Stanley and his wife, Stella (as in Brando's oft-mimicked line, "Hey, Stellaaaaaa!"), are the earthy couple in New Orleans's French Quarter whose lives are upended by the arrival of Stella's sister, Blanche DuBois (Vivien Leigh). Blanche, a disturbed, lyrical, faded Southern belle, is immediately drawn into a battle of wills with Stanley, beautifully captured in the differing styles of the two actors. This extraordinarily fine adaptation won acting Oscars for Leigh, Kim Hunter (as Stella), and Karl Malden (as Blanche's clueless suitor), but not for Brando. Although it had already been considerably cleaned up from the daringly adult stage play, director Elia Kazan was forced to trim a few of the franker scenes he had shot. In 1993, Streetcar was rereleased in a "director's cut" that restored these moments, deepening a film that had already secured its place as an essential American work."
