Dramatic Devices from Williams' Cat on a Hot Tin Roof "Williams instinctively understands the loneliness of a human being - their continuous and desperate effort that is to escape the truth that's there loneliness and their subsequent failure to do so". Williams portrays this loneliness to an audience through the spatial distances on point between characters, which can be indicated at the stage management. "Margaret is alone". It is also emphasised through symbolism as well as the dialog between characters. Major Mama accuses Margaret of not fulfilling Brick in bed and of Brick's break down. After this accusation, "Margaret is alone, totally alone". By repeating this stage management Williams is emphasising that it's imperative that Maggie needs to be lonely. This suggests her isolation inside her union. Both Maggie and Brick are isolated from one another in their marriage. Maggie is, because she's "childless" and Brick is, since he drinks and also the main reason for his drinking drives him for the isolation. Williams uses a good deal of symbolism to exemplify that this solitary confinement. Brick includes a crutch for his foot; this represents his bodily demand to get a crutch and illustrates how he uses it for support. This is also reflected in his drinking; Brick uses alcohol as a mental crutch for assistance. If Maggie is pushing Brick with the truth of what has happened between himself and Skipper "Brick is without his crutch". This means that he has no support and is unbalanced. Formerly, Brick was quite isolated, cold and constantly. He always had his crutch, with no becomes mentally exposed even to the verge of threatening.
