Falling in love, then, is falling in love with ourselves. The beloved reflects our divinity inside us.
Many of Tennessee Williams' plays have cemented their status into American literary and pop culture. Since they were first written, they've been performed on stages both large and small with some degree of regularly through the decades. Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, The Glass Menagerie, and A Streetcar Named Desire come to mind. Williams, however, has over 40 lesser-known one-act plays to his credit, dating back to the 1930's.
The tale of Orpheus, the mythical musical prodigy who went into the underworld to rescue his wife Eurydice, has inspired several plays, but in my mind Tennessee Williams's version is the most interesting.
