Seminar paper from the year 2008 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 1,3, Catholic University Eichstatt-Ingolstadt (Sprach- und Literaturwissenschaftliche Fakultat), language: English, abstract: A Streetcar Named Desire is a lyrical drama about the decline and fall of Blanche DuBois." (Londre, 1979: 78). In this quotation Felicia Hardison Londre indicates that both the character and the inner development of the protagonist Blanche are the focus of attention in "A Streetcar Named Desire." At first glance, Blanche DuBois may seem superficial, even a bit ridiculous on account of the importance she attributes to her looks and to her former social status. However, in my way of thinking, the protagonist's behaviour is in a certain way symptomatic of society itself, even of humanity as a whole. That may be why "Walcott Gibbs referred to A Streetcar Named Desire as 'a brilliant impacable play about the disintegration of a woman, or if you like, of a society.'" (Nelson 1961: 121). Therefore, I consider it crucial to allow insight into the multiple facets of Blanche's personality. All the same, before approaching the caracterization, it is in my opinion necessary to provide you with some basic information about the writer of the play and its contents."

Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: 1,7, RWTH Aachen University (Institut fur Anglistik I), course: Hauptseminar "American Drama," language: English, abstract: Tennessee Williams, born Thomas Lanier Williams, is not only known for being a "talented, perceptive and influential American playwright" (Day 1987, vii), but also for his frequent use of symbols. "A Streetcar Named Desire" (1947), the work which will be dealt with in this paper, is a good example for of usage, since it contains a lot of different kinds of symbolism, for example concerning colours, names, music and many more. Numerous works will be found, if anyone searches for essays about symbolism in Williams' works. Moreover, it is common knowledge that Streetcar is a play which deals not only superficially with a woman going insane, but a play which "bring s] into violent contrast a neurotic woman's dream world and the animalistic realism of her brother-in-law" (back of the book in the Diesterweg edition). But since there does not seem to be any work which deals with the question of how exactly Williams drew this contrast by use of symbolism, it will be my aim in this paper to analyse this question. Consequently, I will try to point out the main symbols with which Williams underlined the contrast between realism and illusion, especially considering names, colours, clothes, light, music and certain rituals of the main characters. In the second part of this paper, I will deal with the question to what degree the main characters Stanley and Blanche are strictly opposed to each other or may have something in common. I will also deal with the meaning of the ending concerning realism and illusion. Therefore, what will be discussed are the most striking antinomies and similes in the main characters' attitudes. A general conclusion about the topic of symbolism in Tennessee Williams' Streetcar will be given in the end. To introduce the reader to the topic an"

Seminar paper from the year 2004 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 1,0, University of Freiburg (English Department), course: 20th Century American Drama, 15 entries in the bibliography, language: English, comment: Good paper: to the point, strong in argument and well researched. Can't ask for more. Form: very good English, citations etc., abstract: This paper investigates the opera adaptation of Tennessee Williams' play A Streetcar Named Desire by Andre Previn. Particular attention is going to be paid to the relation between the original play and the changes made in the opera or caused by the change of genre. Naturally an adaptation of a play into an opera necessitates a shortening of the original text to turn it into an opera libretto. The music added to the play may also change its atmosphere, mood - it might even be an interpretation which is not contained in the play to that extent. Thus this paper follows up on these possible differences and examines whether Andre Previn succeeded in writing an opera A Streetcar Named Desire meeting the high expectations caused by the popularity of the play."

Seminar paper from the year 1999 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: very good, University of Paderborn (American Studies), course: Proseminar: New Orleans in Literature, 11 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: This paper will compare and contrast the written form of Tennessee Williams' play $6WUHHWFDU1DPHG'HVLUH1 with the 1951 movie version.2 It will explain and discuss the major differences between the two, focusing on the issue of censorship as it was an important factor in the development of the play from its Broadway form into a film. As this paper will show this was due to the fact that during the 1940s and 50s the world of theater in America was much more permissive than that of film. This paper will also examine Williams' concept of a 'plastic theater', an innovative approach by him which utilized music, sound effects, movement and lighting to express abstract themes. His idea of a 'plastic theater', was closer to the world of film than to the traditional form of the stage and is evident in $6WUHHWFDU1DPHG'HVLUH. It influenced the adaptation of the play to the big screen. [...]
