The Tennessee Williams Annual Review

The Journal

Current Issue:
Number 16 — 2017

The 2017 issue of the Tennessee Williams Annual Review showcases the exciting results of the journal’s newly expanded scope. Tiffany Gilbert’s opening essay studies Anna Magnani’s acting style and performance of ethnic otherness as collaborative contributions to the film adaptations of The Rose Tattoo and The Fugitive Kind. The notorious “underwear anecdote” that dogged Williams in late life provides a springboard for John S. Bak’s painstakingly researched biographical essay about Williams’s time in Vancouver: scouring interviews and letters, published and unpublished, Bak unearths important details about facts and fictions surrounding the playwright’s late career. At the issue’s heart is Alicia Andrzejewski’s reading of queerness, identity, disability, and difference in The Glass Menagerie.

Founded by Robert Bray in 1998 and now edited by R. Barton Palmer, the Review remains the only regularly published journal dedicated to the work and influence of this preeminent American playwright.
