Stejně jako ony nechtějířešit psychologické problémy jedince, ale snaží se na příběhu několika lidí dobrat se pravdy lidského zážitku, ukázat, že nejsou "ani ničemové, ani hrdinové, nýbrž jen cesty a scestí, kterými se ubírají lidé"

Camino Real. [A play] by Tennessee Williams( Book )
74 editions published between 1948 and 2010 in 6 languages and held by 1,375 libraries worldwide
In this phantasmagorical play, the Camino Real (pronunciation: Cá-mino Réal) is a long highway, a dead end, a police state in a vaguely Latin American country, a nightmare, and an inescapable condition. Characters from history and literature -- Don Quixote, Casanova, Camille, Lord Byron -- inhabit a place where corruption, starvation, indifference and greed have immobilized anyone who tries to escape. Then, into this netherworld, the archetypal Kilroy arrives -- a sailor and all-American guy with "a heart as big as the head of baby." Like others before him in the Camino Real, Kilroy is robbed, conned, turned into a patsy, and he very nearly breaks ... but not quite. When this experimental epic opened on Broadway in 1953, it confounded the critics, but not the audiences. The play's iconic/ironic humor, playful conceits, and towering concerns about society's demand for conformity, the courage of the artist, and the power of compassion have made it a classic

In a few hours he will really have her, because the one-year marriage agreement that has kept them under the same leaky roof--but never in the same bed--is about to run out. Baby Doll becomes the pawn in a battle between her husband and his enemy
