SAINT TENNESSEE WILLIAMS ON STAGE

The aim of this booklet is to decode the allegories and symbols in the literary work of Tennessee Williams. There can be no doubt that Williams constructs an image of himself through his theatrical heroes and heroines. Val Xavier (Orpheus Descending), Lot (The Kingdom of Earth) and other Christ figure characters are just camouflaged projections of Williams' life and times. The process of self sanctification involves his theatrical characters along with Christian hagiology and his own traumatic experiences.
