Undiscovered Country: The Later Plays of Tennessee Williams

Overview

Critics and apparently audiences would prefer to believe that American playwright Williams (1911-83) wrote nothing again after his 1961 Night of the Iguana. English scholars take another look at the many plays he wrote during his last two decades, many of which have never been published and languish in manuscripts strictly guarded by relatives. The 15 original essays are not indexed. Annotation c. Book News, Inc.,Portland, OR
