"With Colleen Dewhurst in the lead role of Miss Amelia, Edward Albee's adaptation of Carson McCullers's most famous novella had its Broadway debut at the Martin Beck Theater on October 30, 1963. The play, startlingly frank in its depiction of grotesque people and bizarre situations in the Deep South, drew raves." "This modern Southern Gothic play combines the gifts of McCullers and Albee to give us an unforgettably dark love triangle among Miss Amelia, cafe-owner; her estranged husband Marvin Macy; and her cousin Lymon."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Seminar paper from the year 2006 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 1.0, Dresden Technical University (Institut fur Anglistik/Amerikanistik), course: Images of the American South, 22 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: This paper is going to examine how the southern-born writer Carson McCullers creates the lonely picture of an individual living in hopeless spiritual isolation in a southern town. The South used to be a rural area with its own distinctive culture and a "strong folk tradition, preserved mainly through music and language" (Forkner 91). It will be discussed how this image had to give way to the new reality of the South by the time of the 1940s. It had turned into an interchangeable urbanized society which excluded the individual which did not correspond to southern norms. Furthermore, by analyzing the main characters of The Ballad of the Sad Cafe, the paper points out the unique dreariness of McCullers' visions, looking for reasons in her childhood as well as in her adult life. Focusing on her work The Ballad of the Sad Cafe, the paper underlines that McCullers was always questioning the national identity of 20th century America in general, and the transforming southern society
