English Literature - Cat on a Hot Tin Roof by Tennessee WilliamsDescribe the relationship between Maggie and Brick When the play opens we are introduced to a pretty young woman who is shouting This woman goes by the name of Margaret and lets the audience know right from the beginning that if ever she has a problem shell let you know about itAs we read through the first Act of this three Act play we learn very quickly that the relationship between Margaret and her husband Brick is one sided - with all the effort coming from Maggie It is clear their relationship wouldnt be considered normal because of their attitudes towards each other or rather Bricks attitude towards his wife The first few pages indicate that Maggie is extremely talkative with Brick hardly being able to get a sentence in edgeways however it later becomes apparent that Brick isnt all too bothered about getting his view across to his loquacious wife The first conversation we see take place between Brick and Maggie - well conversation in that Maggie went on and on and Brick would occasionally answer The conversation concerns Bricks sisters children or the no-neck monsters as Maggie so eloquently calls them She moans about her nieces and nephews for quite a while with Brick asking without interest What are they up to Maggie This conversation drags on for a while with Maggie complaining about the children running around and screaming their heads off However what is most interesting about the entire long-winded conversation is that Brick shows no interest in either Maggie or what she has to say He almost seems fed up and indifferent to anything she mentions When it comes to discussing the childrens parents - Bricks sister and brother-in-law Mae and Gooper we learn Maggies feelings on this particular subject as Maggie likes to make her views known She thinks theyve simply brought the kids round to show off
