- Discusses Tennessee WIlliams' "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" and Arthur Miller's "Death of a Salesman" in regards to Ann Douglas's thesis of Americans appropriating the concept of terrible, truth-telling, phallicly-empowered "monsters" in order to lay low the influence of mothers whose influence over their children has stretched way outside the bounds of childhood and adolescence. These works are explored as "sites," are considered such as much as physical spaces such as churches, temples, in which readers program themselves -- subtly, slowly, alter their brain registers -- so like we now assume is the case with repeated visits "alt" mediums they "emerge" "outside" with different "programs" as to how to engage with "reality."
