Tennessee Williams (1965)

Thomas Lanier Williams III, bedre kjent som Tennessee Williams (født 26. mars 1911 i Columbus i Mississippi, død 25. februar 1983) var en amerikansk dramatiker. Det var bare de første syv årene av Williams' oppvekst som foregikk i Mississippi. Staten, og dialekten som snakkes der, er likevel svært sentral i dramatikerens verker, og han assosieres med sørstatenes talemåter, kultur og mat. Han er mest kjent for sine filmatiserte skuespill En sporvogn til begjær (A Streetcar Named Desire) fra 1947 og Katt på hett blikktak (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof) fra 1955. Begge skuespillene utspiller seg i USAs sørstater, og skildrer lidenskapelige kvinner.
