Tennessee Williams: Creativity Liberates Us

Anna Magnani and Tennessee Williams on the set of The Fugitive Kind, 1959.


Interview with Tennessee Williams
Conducted by James Grissom
New Orleans
1982


Creativity liberates us. The mind that fails to embrace its particular gifts will wither and recognize only reaction--anger and lust and hunger. Creativity alters everything, and I'm not speaking of pursuing professional work--I'm talking about everyone on the face of the planet embracing where their creative impulses take them, remove them from the grinding despair of what we call reality.

Surround yourself with creative-thinking people. The world will fail to pull you to its dusty bosom if creativity lifts you above it.

Creativity is the true spark of God within all of us.
