Cat On A Hot Tin Roof

by Tennessee Williams, Cat On A Hot Tin Roof Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Cat On A Hot Tin Roof books, 'Big Daddy' Pollitt, the richest cotton planter in the Mississippi Delta, is about to celebrate his sixty-fifth birthday. His two sons have returned home for the occasion: Gooper, his wife and children, Brick, an ageing football hero who has turned to drink, and his feisty wife Maggie. As the hot summer evening unfolds, the veneer of happy family life and Southern gentility gradually slips away as unpleasant truths emerge and greed, lies, jealousy and suppressed sexuality threaten to reach boiling point. Made into a film starring Elizabeth Taylor and Paul Newman, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof is a masterly portrayal of family tensions and individuals trapped in prisons of their own making.

Download Die Funktion Der Maggie Pollitt In Tennessee Williams Cat On A Hot Tin Roof books, Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2001 im Fachbereich Amerikanistik - Literatur, Note: 2, Universität Hamburg (Institut für Literatur und Kultur Nordamerikas), Veranstaltung: American Playwrights, 7 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Einleitung In meiner Arbeit Die Funktion der Maggie Pollitt in Tennessee Williams ’Cat on a Hot Tin Roof’ möchte ich die Charakterkonzeption der Maggie untersuchen und ihr Verhältnis zu den Mitgliedern der Familie Politt betrachten. Mein Anliegen bei dieser Arbeit ist zu zeigen, dass Maggie zwar nicht die Hauptfigur des Stücks (diese Rolle kommt ihrem Ehemann Brick zu), aber die wichtigste Figur ist. So werde ich dann auch in Kapitel 4 beschreiben, dass Maggie die treibende Kraft im Stück ist, denn sie beraubt die Familienmitglieder ihrer Illusionen und repräsentiert hierin die Aussage des Werks, nämlich, dass Wahrheit immer besser als Illusion ist. Zuletzt werde ich fragen, ob das Ende, das Maggie für die Familie Pollitt und für sich selbst herbeiführt, für alle eine positive Wendung darstellt und als befriedigend angesehen werden kann – letzteres auch, weil Maggie durch ihre Schwangerschaftslüge selbst von der Verlogenheit der anderen infiziert zu sein scheint.

Cat On A Hot Tin Roof

by Tennessee Williams, Cat On A Hot Tin Roof Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Cat On A Hot Tin Roof books, The definitive text of this American classic—reissued with an introduction by Edward Albee (Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? and A Delicate Balance) and Williams' essay "Person-to-Person." Cat on a Hot Tin Roof first heated up Broadway in 1955 with its gothic American story of brothers vying for their dying father's inheritance amid a whirlwind of sexuality, untethered in the person of Maggie the Cat. The play also daringly showcased the burden of sexuality repressed in the agony of her husband, Brick Pollitt. In spite of the public controversy Cat stirred up, it was awarded the Pulitzer Prize and the Drama Critics Circle Award for that year. Williams, as he so often did with his plays, rewrote Cat on a Hot Tin Roof for many years—the present version was originally produced at the American Shakespeare Festival in 1974 with all the changes that made Williams finally declare the text to be definitive, and was most recently produced on Broadway in the 2003-04 season. This definitive edition also includes Williams' essay "Person-to-Person," Williams' notes on the various endings, and a short chronology of the author's life. One of America's greatest living playwrights, as well as a friend and colleague of Williams, Edward Albee has written a concise introduction to the play from a playwright's perspective, examining the candor, sensuality, power, and impact of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof then and now.

Dramenverfilmung Im Vergleich Tennessee Williams A Streetcar Named Desire Und Cat On A Hot Tin Roof

Download Dramenverfilmung Im Vergleich Tennessee Williams A Streetcar Named Desire Und Cat On A Hot Tin Roof books, Magisterarbeit aus dem Jahr 2004 im Fachbereich Amerikanistik - Literatur, Note: 1,7, Universität Augsburg, 58 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Tennessee Williams hatte Zeit seines Lebens eine sehr enge Beziehung zum Film. Bereits in frühester Jugend fühlte er sich von Lichtspielhäusern magisch angezogen: „I used to want to climb into the screen and join the action. My mother had to hold me down“. So überrascht es nicht, dass der erwachsene Williams vor seiner steilen Karriere als Dramaturg seinen Lebensunterhalt als Drehbuchautor verdiente. Seine Anstellung bei Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer stand jedoch unter keinem guten Stern und Williams wurde vorzeitig entlassen. Aus den damals abgelehnten Drehbüchern entstanden schließlich seine ersten erfolgreichen Bühnenstücke. Nicht zuletzt wegen seiner Erfahrung in der Filmbranche entwickelte Williams seinen eigenen Darstellungsmodus, den er plastic theatre nannte. Wenngleich Foster Hirsch der Meinung ist, dass diese Art der Dramaturgie die filmische Adaption der Werke Williams’ erschwert, so gehört Williams dennoch zu den wenigen Dramaturgen, deren wichtigste Werke komplett verfilmt wurden5. Die vorliegende Arbeit befasst sich mit dem Vergleich zweier der populärsten Verfilmungen seiner Dramen: A Streetcar Named Desire (Reg. Elia Kazan, Warner Brothers, 1951) und Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (Reg. Richard Brooks, MGM, 1958).
