A compilation of eight transcribed panels that were featured at The Tennessee Williams Scholars' Conference. This study explores issues involving Williams' drama, fiction, poetry, and films in a discursive format designed to probe and debate the legacy of America's famous playwright.

Book News
This collection of lively transcribed panel discussions, taken from those presented at the March 2006 conference, includes commentary on re-reading, teaching, and interpreting a wide range of aspects of Williams's production and life, including his early and late work, his attention to his contexts, and his relations with Carson McCullers, Lillian Hellman and William Inge. Participants describe the various ways they teach the plays, analyze Williams's connections with and uses of the bizarre, and exchange information about the surprising finds they have made in the playwright's unpublished materials and discuss the relevant ethical and aesthetic considerations. Editor Bray (English, Middle Tennessee State U.) has done a masterful job of indexing this oral record. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
