Writing in at about the Named DesireSweet PDFEPUB #231 time Elia Kazan directed Sweet Bird of Youth on Broadway Tennessee Williams described his first successful play as being about as violent as you can get on the stage During the years sinc. I’ve never read this play before today and I’ve still never seen the film – I’m going to assume that makes me the last person in the world to have now read this play and so will not worry that this review will have lots of spoilers I’ve heard of this play before of course – I even thought I knew what happened in it from a million or so references I’ve heard about it over the years I can’t say I really enjoyed it Parts of it were so heavy handed that they made me cringe – the blind Mexican woman for example calling out ‘flowers for the dead’ was perhaps only forgivable because it was in Spanish but really and I found the all too convenient music piping up from the local bar increasingly annoying – the problem with reading this play is that I’ve no idea what ‘blue piano’ means I’ll google it later I guess And I found the stage directions nearly laughably detailed Like this one when Blanche is first introduced “Her delicate beauty must avoid a strong light There is something about her uncertain manner as well as her white clothes that suggests a moth” I’m not sure how you might act that – although I do see that moths need to avoid strong lightsThere is not a single likeable character in this play There is Blanche DuBois the white woods a kind of tragic fading beauty who hasn’t uite forgiven herself for having killed her angelic husband by telling him how disgusted she was in him over his homosexual affair conveniently while the other piece of music that plays throughout was playing This tragic end to her first husband has proven to have driven her into the arms of an endless string of increasingly younger men ending with a 17 year old student of hers in an attempt to – what Retaste her youth The explanation given in the play is that she is seeking a kind of security You might think that her life experience to date might speak against this path as the most obvious means of achieving security The problem is that Blanche suffers from anxiety – relieved only by endlessly long baths booze and flirting – she is suffering from some kind of mental illness and so is portrayed as self medicating neurotic When she first meets her sister’s Stella the star husband Stanley she even flirts with him Except of course she finds him beneath her in almost every way being particularly put off by his crudity and his beating up her sister He is portrayed as an animal – a kind of sexual and muscular beast – which women or at least some women are supposed to find irresistible This is almost a play contrasting the animal with the civilised – except that the civilised is presented as an illusion as really only a thin layer of varnish that is all too easily scratched off – as with Blanche the Southern Belle whose own life has been brought to the point of near total destruction by her own animal lusts itself shows all too clearly This is a play full of kettles and pots that are all too ready to call each other blackStella has come down in the world by marrying the meat man Stanley – but is prepared to put up with a bit of rough treatment as long as the sex afterwards makes it all worthwhile She comes across as a bit of an air head to be honest She refuses to believe the worst about either Blanche or
