What would be a good essay thesis for A Streetcar Named Desire?  What should I include in it?

Expert Answers

An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles

It is very important that you understand that this work is a play, a drama--not a novel.  A good thesis would be "how does Tennessee Williams fulfill an American version of a tragedy as opposed to the classical definition of a tragedy according to Aristotle."
