Exceeding boundaries - Tennessee Williams and the Grotesque

Tennessee Williams scholar Dr. Annette J. Saddik helps contextualize A Perfect Analysis Given by a Parrot by providing listeners with a bit of background on where the pay falls within TW's cannon.  In her book as well as the podcast Dr. Saddik argues that the grotesque is not only the key to unlocking  Williams' later plays/performance, but it is actually the key to understanding all his works.  In addition, she helps us understand the meaning of the Parrot in the play.
