Overview

 

William Styron’s riveting and humorous play about a group of Marines who stand up to the military machine In the summer of 1943, a young Marine named Wally Magruder arrives at a Navy hospital in the American South, stricken with what doctors diagnose as a severe case of syphilis. Trapped in the stifling confines of the urology ward, Magruder and his fellow patients rebel against the authoritarian Dr. Glanz, a physician who delights in the power that sickness gives him. But as they seek to reclaim their identities against dehumanization, the ward becomes a hell more real than any of them could have imagined. Inspired by Styron’s own experience in a military hospital, In the Clap Shack is a searing indictment of military brutalization and a brilliant defense of individualism and personal freedom. This ebook features new manuscripts, rare photos, and never-before-seen documents from the William Styron archives at Duke University.

    The Forgotten Warrior's Prophecy

    The snows flake will turn to a full size blizzard. The dash of life my have to dash for his life. Flames flower will soon smoke and smolder until it dies out. The wind as it rushes will start to slow to a breeze until the air is still. Theres only one hope. One hope for the warriors. A pearl in the ocean.
