"All work is autobiographical if it is serious. Everything a writer produces is sort of his inner history, transposed into another time" Tennessee Williams

Williams has been called one of the most subjective and autobiographcal of playwrights

From the fabric of his own childhood and emotional experience he has created some of the most haunting characters and memorable dramas the stage has ever known

The Southern experience is at the root of his creative vision - the South portrayed as an Ante-Bellum mansion of faded elegance, inhabited by gentle dreamers, misfits and fugitives - characters twisted by time and circumstance, and by their own inhibitions and passions

The World of Tennessee Williams attempts to capture pictorially the man and the playwright

It is a lavish celebration of the life and works of Tennessee Williams, containing some 200 illustrations, including rare and previously unpublished photographs, letters, rehearsal notes, manuscript drafts, posters, review clippings and fascinating memorabilia

It includes an Introduction by Tennessee Williams

This large format hardback used copy is in very good condition, with dust jacket
