Annotation

Discusses the role of Hemingway’s ghost in Williams’s play based on the turbulent relationship between Zelda and F. Scott Fitzgerald. Covers Williams’s incorporation and interpretation of familiar biographical elements, including Hemingway’s dislike of Zelda’s disruptive influence on Scott’s artistry. Explores Williams’s thematic treatment of masculinity, sexuality, and androgyny within the play as well as each author’s anxieties over their own creative abilities.
