    One thought on “Eight Mortal Ladies Possessed: A Book of Stories ”

    1. Když se řekne Tenesí Viliams, hned si vybavím nějakej chlast a řeku. Pak mi vždycky dojde, že je to spisovatel a že vlastně napsal Šalina do stanice touha a Kočka na rozpálené střeše. Ani jedno jsem nikdy neviděl, ale jelikož jsou to černobílý filmy a maj blbý názvy, tak jsem předpokládal, že je to zamilovaný, drama a nuda. Takhle dobře já dedukuju. A na základě těchto dedukací jsem byl tedy řádně v šoku, když jsem otevřel tuto knížečku a místo nudných [...]

    2. All of the stories in this book were written in the early 1970s with the exception of one story written on the day of Tennessee William's mother's death around 1944. As a result the sexual metaphors and subtleties of his past short story collections are missing. I don't know if it was due to the sexual frankness of novels in the 1970s or if Williams was just plain horny, but he beats you over the head with vulgar language and one explicit and crass sex scene after another. One scene even involve [...]

    3. ¿Que pensé al momento de que ví la portada de este libro y leer el titúlo?- Este libro debe ser de terror del bueno.Y me equivoqué."Ocho Mortales Poseídas" es un libro de pequeños relatos contemporaneos muy interesantes y adictivos.Es un libro bastante explicito en algunos aspectos, pero aún así su lectura es fácil y rápida.Mi relato favorito sin duda es SABBATHA Y LA SOLEDAD, amé cada palabra escrita en ese maldito relato.Es un libro bastante divertido y lleno de anecdotas e histori [...]

    4. Libro de seis relatos cortos en los que los personajes femeninos dominan.Podemos ver las características recurrentes de Tennessee Williams,su obsesión por el sexo, mujeres ajadas, sensualidad reprimida,incluso barruntos de locura.El pimer relato nos presenta a dos solteronas, seguramente lesbianas, que comparten piso y que viven en un equilibrio más que sorprendente entre el amor y el odio, con sus conflictos psicológicos y sus deficiencias emocionales.Pertenecientes a distintas clases socia [...]

    5. Tennessee Williams focuses on female characters in this collection of short stories. After reading some of his other works, the "types" almost start to seem repetitive. The themes are always variations on social class insecurity; sexual appetites that are discreetly satisfied, openly celebrated, or starved; mental illness of one sort or another, and encroaching poverty (related to the class insecurity, of course). The male character who can easily switch between servicing powerful male OR female [...]

    6. I don't know about everyone else, but I have known women exactly like those portrayed by Williams. Maybe it comes from growing up in the South. It struck me that Williams' sexually graphic scenes may have seemed shocking forty years ago, but today not so much. That said, there is still beautiful writing here; these stories are plausible ideas for plays which couldn't be staged in Williams' day. This book leaves me wanting to seek out more of Williams' stories.

    7. I decided to read these short stories as I'd liked Williams' plays so much, but was disappointed. He has concentrated on bizarre behavior of elderly women in this short volume and I couldn't help thinking that little of it was taken from life; it had a "made-up" component to titilate the reader.

    8. I thought these stories were sometimes funny, sometimes troubling, sometimes touching, but completely amazing. Williams skillfully avoids the trap of caricaturing and presents each protagonist as perfectly human and compelling.
