In Williams’ plays there is longer satisfaction in the end which keeps the comedy along with the tragedy. In “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof,” Meg locks up Brick’s liquor and urges him to get her pregnant so that Big Daddy can die knowing that the land is going to his favorite son and that he has a grandkid on the way. This is a comedic ending because everyone is satisfied with what is to come and though there is tragedy, the comedy outshines it. “A Streetcar Named Desire” ends with tragedy because Stanley has to live with the guilt of causing Blanche to go insane and get sent to the mental hospital. Tragedy is best displayed in Tennessee Williams’ plays through the situations he puts his characters in and their dialogue.
