9780061232671: Essential Tennessee Williams CD: Excerpts from The Glass Menagerie and poems (Caedmon Essentials)

Tennessee Williams, one of America’s most beloved playwrights, reads from his own work in an extraordinary and historic recording from the very earliest of the Caedmon archive.

This CD opens with the playwright reading the wistful opening monologue and the tragic ending of his Pulitzer Prize winning memory play, The Glass Menagerie. In addition, Williams reads a collection of his light and charming poetry that skillfully displays his range and skill. And Williams ends with his uproariously wicked short story, The Yellow Bird.

From AudioFile:

In this 1952 recording, Williams reads sections of THE GLASS MENAGERIE, several poems, mostly short, and a wicked little story about a preacher's daughter gone bad. His voice is rich, his accent pleasant, even charming, and his lisp pronounced, which takes some getting used to. He has an actor's command of emotional inflection, but with no self-indulgence; he moves everything along with unsentimental briskness. In MENAGERIE, he sometimes gives speaker ascription, sometimes not, which also takes getting used to, but it works. In fact, he's better at the dialogue than the soliloquies, which could do with a little hamminess. Williams's idiosyncratic reading would entertain even if it didn't arouse interest as the author's take on his own creations.
