A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. Tennessee Williams s Notebooks, here published for the first time, presents by turns a passionate, whimsical, movingly lyrical, self-reflective, and completely uninhibited record of the life of this monumental American genius from 1936 to 1981, the year of his death. In these pages Williams (1911-1981) wrote out his most private thoughts as well as sketches of plays, poems, and accounts of his social, professional, and sexual encounters. The notebooks are the repository of Williams s fears, obsessions, passions, and contradictions, and they form possibly the most spontaneous self-portrait by any writer in American history. Meticulously edited and annotated by Margaret Thornton, the notebooks follow Williams growth as a writer from his undergraduate days to the publication and production of his most famous plays, from his drug addiction and drunkenness to the heights of his literary accomplishments. At one point, Williams writes, I feel dull and disinterested in the literary line. Dr. Heller bores me with all his erudite discussion of literature. Writing is just writing! Why all the fuss about it? This remarkable record of the life of Tennessee Williams is about writing--how his writing came up like a pure, underground stream through the often unhappy chaos of his life to become a memorable and permanent contribution to world literature.

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Tennessee Williams's "Notebooks", here published for the first time, presents by turns a passionate, whimsical, movingly lyrical, self-reflective, and completely uninhibited record of the life of this monumental American genius from 1936 to 1981, the year of his death. In these pages, Williams (1911-1981) wrote out his most private thoughts as well as sketches of plays, poems, and accounts of his social, professional, and sexual encounters. The "Notebooks" are the repository of Williams's fears, obsessions, passions, and contradictions, and they form possibly the most spontaneous self-portrait by any writer in American history. Meticulously edited and annotated by Margaret Thornton, the "Notebooks" follow Williams' growth as a writer from his undergraduate days to the publication and production of his most famous plays, from his drug addiction and drunkenness to the heights of his literary accomplishments. At one point, Williams writes, "I feel dull and disinterested in the literary line. Dr. Heller bores me with all his erudite discussion of literature. Writing is just writing! Why all the fuss about it?". This remarkable record of the life of Tennessee Williams is about writing - how his writing came up like a pure, underground stream through the often unhappy chaos of his life to become a memorable and permanent contribution to world literature.

'...stupendous, superbly annotated...' -- The Guardian, February 17, 2007

'Edited with grace and sensitivity and well illustrated with innumerable

-- New Statesman, March 19, 2007

'The journals show the first signs of a remarkable talent that would blow apart the conventions of 20th-century American drama.' -- West End Extra, July 27, 2007

'This book gives us a look at the...life that permitted Williams
to create his unforgettable and perfect dramas' -- The Scotsman, March 17, 2007

...a monumental testament to a poignant life, a no-holds-barred,
worm's eye view of America's most raw and brutal lyricist.
-- The Examiner, May 12, 2007
