Hi, I'd like to knwo if anyone has read the book 'Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf' by Edward Albee. What are your views on how it relates to the 'American Dream'.

I read it two years ago when I happened to find it on a garage sale. To be honest, I didn't think I caught its theme. I understood the story. But... ermm, what was it exactly that the book or the authour wanted to convey?

I think it was the fact that in some way everyone lives in somewhat of a phantasy world and that people have different ways of avoiding reality so that they won't have to face their fears. It also had to do a lot with the difficulties of marriage. "It's easy to fall in love but difficult to stay in it."

Ah... so, it was more about marriage stuff. I had thought it was insinuating the concept of loneliness, say, even one got married?

Thanks for your mention about this book.
