The play was a major success because of the great measure of its development and the subsequent production offered by the Steppenwolf Theatre in Chicago. As a result the play was made into a film based on the audience reaction (Letts, 12).
The poet T.S. Eliot is quoted and referenced in the play due to the fact that the main concept put across is that of life. Letts uses quotes from one of his poems ‘The Hollow men’ which is a poem that talks more about broken souls.

There was also need to connect with most of the audience that were within that background.

Her presence does not affect me as a reader as her character represents a real life situation in Oklahoma (Letts, 16).

This is due to the fact that she portrayed the role of being a devoted daughter despite the crisis that was in the family and the fact that her mother was an addict. For instance, during a family dinner in act two she stood up in front of everyone and declared that she was going to run things from then henceforth. This scene shows that she ...

A perfect example was in 1947 in America by Clyfford Still. In Europe, there was “Popular Art” that was started in the early 1960s by Lichtenstein, Hamilton, Ramos and Indiana. The movement also was too elitist and celebrated the postwar consumer culture. An example in Europe was Lichtenstein, Drowning Girl in 1963.
