Moderator Henry Schvey, professor of Drama and Comparative Literature at Washington University in St. Louis since 1987, has lectured on Tennessee Williams both in the U.S. and abroad, and has published numerous essays on Williams. He is currently working on two projects: one about Tennessee Williams’ conflicted history with St. Louis, and the other a study of Williams’ paintings and their relationship to his plays. His most recent publication is a study of the influence of D.H. Lawrence upon Williams titled, “After the Fox” (Tennessee Williams Annual Review, 2018). His coming-of-age memoir, “The Poison Tree,” was published in 2016.
