Tennessee Williams eBooks

Tennessee Williams was an American playwright, with many of his works considered classics. Born in 1911 in Mississippi, and was raised in a female-dominated environment. His father disliked his son’s frailty, due in part to illness as a small child.

The family moved to Missouri when Williams was eight. While there, Williams began writing, and eventually enrolled in a journalism program at the University of Missouri. He entered writing contests hoping to win money.

Williams was taken out of school by his father and put to work at a shoe factory, though within three years he had left the job and had a nervous breakdown. He enrolled at Washington University before moving to the University of Iowa.

Throughout the 1930s and 1940s, Williams worked as a playwright. In 1939, he moved to New Orleans to write for the Works Progress Administration. In 1944, he wrote one of his most famous plays, The Glass Menagerie, which was an immediate success.

Williams followed that with A Streetcar Named Desire in 1947. Over the following decade, he earned two Pulitzer prizes, Three New York Drama Critics’ Circle Awards, and a Tony Award, amongst others. His plays were also adapted for film.

His plays of the 1960s and 70s were not as successful. The stress of negative press combined with the death of Frank Merlo, Williams’ long-term love interest, and Williams fell into a nearly catatonic depression. Though he continued to write up until his death in 1983, Williams produced much less. He received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1980, and has had numerous forms of posthumous recognition.
