Tennessee Williams had an arduous life, living with a dysfunctional family. This paper overviews his family life and explains how it gave birth to two of the greatest plays in American history, "The Glass Menagerie" and "A Streetcar Named Desire".

From the Paper:

"Tennessee Williams wrote some of America's most famous plays. His life was riddled with obscurity and pain. He had an absent father, an eccentric mother, and a mentally ill sister. Tennessee used his writing as a form of escape and reflection of his life. Two of his most famous plays, The Glass Menagerie and A Streetcar Named Desire, are perfect examples of his literary talents and use of incorporating his own life into his scripts."
