Tennessee Williams (1911–1983) The plays of this American writer include The Glass Menagerie, A Streetcar Named Desire, The Rose Tattoo, and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. In these, as in many of his later works, Williams explores the passions and frustrations of a disturbed and frequently brutal society. Williams won a Rockefeller Fellowship, two Pulitzer prizes, a Kennedy Honors Award, and a Medal of Freedom. The playwright’s deceptively easy manner, informal speech, and carefree air reminded Karsh of various characters in Williams’ work—ordinary-looking men hiding an unsuspected fury which invariably erupts on stage, often in tragedy.
