Music becomes emotions : the musical score in two productions of A Streetcar Named Desire
Tomaž Onič, 2016, original scientific article

Abstract: From today's perspective, Alex North's score for the 1951 film A Streetcar Named Desire, which was considered remarkable even at the time, can claim legendary status. The titles of the 16-track score suggest that the music focuses on the characters, the setting, main motifs, crucial events and states of mind. The film soundtrack could thus be denoted as integral to and harmonized with the dramatic action. This is not the case in the 2008 staging at the Slovene National Theatre in Maribor, where the music composed and selected by Hrvoje Crnić Boxer seems to focus on the protagonist only. The performance revolves around Blanche and could be interpreted as a psychoanalytic study of the play through her subconscious. Analysing the musical layers of these two considerably different productions of Williams' play opens new interpretative aspects of this complex theatre and film classic from the Deep South literary tradition.

An examination of lexical choices in Slovene translations of British and American drama
Darja Darinka Hribar, 2005, original scientific article

Abstract: The article examines lexical choices preferred by a noted Slovene translator of dramatic texts. It is based on the assumption that in spite of the fact that lexical choices offer much greater freedom in translation than, for instance, grammatical choices, they are subject to a number of intratextual and extratextual factors defining the genre, the kind of translation, and specific features of individual plays. Although examples are taken from only one set of translations of Tennessee Williams's A Streetcar Named Desire, they also refer to other working and published versions of dramatranslations into Slovene, including Albee's Whos Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Miller's Death of a Salesman, Pinter's plays, and Shaw's Pygmalion. The shifts considered in the article relate to register, i. e. factors of language variation affecting lexical choices related to the field, mode, and tenor of discourse.

Anamarija Potočnik, 2011, undergraduate thesis

Abstract: The Glass Menagerie, A Streetcar Named Desire and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof are the most successful Tennessee Williams' plays and among the most significant plays of the twentieth-century. The psychoanalytic approach was used to analyse the three Williams' plays, since they are full of recurring themes such as social isolation and loneliness and memorable characters with complex personalities. The characters of the Williams' plays are all based on real people from Williams' life or Williams himself, so the comparison to Williams' biography was crucial for the description of characters and for clarification of the literary functions of the Oedipus complex. The paper was not restricted to the Oedipus complex only, but it also included some other psychoanalytical concepts such as declarative memory, object-relational conflict and homosexual panic for better understanding of the characters and literary functions of Oedipus complex in The Glass Menagerie, A Streetcar Named Desire and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. The plays reveal Williams' life story. The sources of research were the three plays, literature about the author and psychoanalytic articles about Williams and Williams' plays.
Keywords: Tennessee Williams, Oedipus complex, The Glass Menagerie, A Streetcar Named Desire, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, psychoanalytical approach.
