Analysis Of ' Cat On A Hot Tin Roof '

- Bound by Southern ideals, growing up in the 1940s and 1950s was a battle of change and resistance. As outside social influences began to meander into the lives of those living in the South, children were veering off the path of what a normal, obedient Southern child should act like. As observed in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, “A Good Man is Hard to Find,” and The Princess and the Frog, defying Southern norms was difficult.
