Tennessee Williams on Marian Seldes


Marian, captured by Susan Johann

Fabulous Marian. True Marian worship–what the Catholics reserve for the Blessed Virgin– can and should be applied to her. Take this Rosary and this prayer to her, and let her know that she has been–more often than I’m sure she cares to realize–the light on the shore that got me back home, safe and sound. I adore that woman.
From a conversation with Tennessee Williams in 1982. Marian carried the small, wooden rosary that Tennessee bought for her–crafted in Jerusalem–with her all the time.
