More About This Book

Overview

Una fiesta de cumpleaños en una plantación del Delta del Mississippi: un hombre que se está muriendo de cáncer y que ha creído toda la vida que «el animal humano es una bestia [?] que en el fondo tiene la loca esperanza de ¡poder comprar la vida eterna!» reúne a toda su familia. Una mujer a la que desprecia, un hijo mendaz, otro hijo borracho, unos nietos insoportables, el médico y el reverendo? y, en el centro de todo, una nuera bella y ansiosa, «Maggie la gata», dispuesta a no dejarse arrebatar nada de lo que la vida, tan parca en concesiones, le ha dado. Una gata sobre un tejado de zinc (1955), que aquí ofrecemos en la versión definitiva fijada por el autor en 1974, es un intento de «atrapar la verdadera naturaleza de la experiencia de un grupo de personas, ese intercamcio turbio, tembloroso, evanescente ?¡tan fieramente cargado!? de los seres humanos en la tormenta de una crisis corriente». Además de este gran clásico de Tennessee Williams, en este volumen se incluye un pieza corta de la misma época, Un análisis perfecto hecho por un loro (1957), un cuadro hilarante y patético de dos antiguas bellezas sureñas en el bar de un hotel de St. Louis.Thomas Lanier (Tennessee) Williams nació en 1911 en Columbus, Mississippi, hijo de un comerciante de zapatos descendiente de una linajuda familia sureña. En 1918 se trasladaron a St. Louis. En la época de la Depresión, Williams trabajó en una fábrica, y, tras un paso no muy brillante por las universidades de Missouri y Washington, en 1938 se licenció en la de Iowa. Empezó su carrera teatral escribiendo piezas de un solo acto que le valieron en 1939 el premio Group Theater y una beca de la Author's League of America. Tras el fracaso de su primer estreno profesional, Battle of Angels (1940), combinó material autobiográfico y técnicas innovadoras en El zoo de cristal (1945), con la que ganó el premio del New York Drama Critics? Circle e inició una fulgurante carrera de éxitos: obras como Un tranvía llamado Deseo (1947), Verano y humo (1948), La rosa tatuada (1951), Una gata sobre un tejado de zinc (1955), De repente el último verano (1958) o Dulce pájaro de juventud (1959) son hoy clásicos insustituibles del repertorio contemporáneo. Escribió también ficción narrativa: la novela La primavera romana de la señora Stone (1950), y cuentos como los recogidos en La noche de la iguana y otros relatos y Ocho mortales poseídas (1974). Murió en Nueva York en 1983.

    Bio of Sun

    Name is Sun. His past is distant, but will tell when he has opened up to this clan. He grew past his cub-hood in Crystalclan. When that became pretty onactive he went away. Now hes in Tigerclan. He is very open to kits, welcome to tell them stories or keep them warm. He cant give them milk, but he does what he can. Suns name is Lionkit, but he recovered his true name. If you prefer a warrior name he also accepts LionWings. He is a red fox with ears like a fennecs. He is an excellent hunter and fighter. His fur is a dark, rusty color but glistens in the light. All for now.
