English 530: The Life and Literature of Tennessee Williams

The mythic man and writer: a SOL research guide through the landscape of Tennessee Williams


This research guide is designed for School of Letters students ready to take the deep dive into all things Tennessee Williams. Featured here is a carefully curated collection of digital resources (biographical, primary and secondary) that can be accessed through the duPont Library website as well as the open web. Links to general research and writing help are also provided. These selections are by no means comprehensive, but are intended to provide a sound start to your work.

I am your embedded librarian, Courtnay Zeitler. Besides my Library Science degree, I also have my MA in English, with a concentration in American Literature. I'm available by email, phone, chat or Zoom, and if you scroll down a little bit, you'll find out how to contact and/or make an appointment with me.

Remote Research and Research Help

We are both excited and determined to provide you, the student, with the very best access to the best academic resources and assistance in using those resources. Journals, databases, e-books, audio & video files: we have everything you need to enrich your experience as readers, researchers and scholars. We cannot "gather" in the library, but duPont's Research Help Office is open for business.
