cage (illustration)/ kavez (ilustracija)



Again, another illustration inspired by  Tennessee Williams'  play. Cat on a Hot Thin Roof is one of his better known plays, probably due to the film version that has won so much acclaim. This would be one of the rare cases where I like the book and the movie equally. I'm sure that primarily has to do with the wonderful performance of Paul Newman and Elizabeth Taylor. The play is actually a lot more open and daring than the movie, that feels to some extent like a censored version, but as I said the suburb acting makes out for it. Rereading the play, I felt more than ever, sympathetic with the Maggie the cat character.


Maggie: I'll win, all right.
Brick: Win what? What is the victory of a cat on a hot tin roof?
Maggie: Just staying on it, I guess. As long as she can.


Ponovno jedna ilustracija nadahnuta dramom Tennessee Williamsa. Mačka na vrućem limenom krovu je jedna od njegovih poznatijih drama, vjerovatno zbog filmske verzije koja je bila toliko cijenjena. Ovo bi bio jedan od rijetkih slučajeva kada mi se film sviđa koliko i knjiga, a to je sigurno zbog sjajne izvedbe Paula Newmana i Elizabeth Taylor. Sama drama je puno otvorenija i hrabrija od filma, koji je u nekoj mjeri cenzurirana verzija, ali kao što sam rekla sjajna gluma to nadomješta. Sada kad sam ponovo čitala dramu, više nego ikad suosjećala sam sa Maggie.

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.
