Cat on a Hot Tin Roof - Tennessee Williams, New Edition (Modern Critical Interpretations)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tennessee Williams's second Pulitzer Prize-winning play 'Cat on a Hot Tin Roof' confronts homosexuality, father-and-son relationships, greed, manipulation, aging, and death. It is considered today with 'A Streetcar Named Desire' and 'The Glass Menagerie' as among his finest works for the stage. In this new offering in the Bloom's Modern Critical Interpretations series, Harold Bloom offers his critical eye to the characters of Brick, Big Daddy, and the deceptive Maggie the Cat, presented here with a bibliography, a chronology of Williams's life, and a handy index.
