Key words: Tennessee Williams, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, classical tradition, Greek tragedy, Greek philosophy, American literature, American drama, gay studies

The aim of this article is to show which are the dramatic “yields” of the inclusion of the reference to the goddess Diana in Tennessee Williams’s Cat on a Hot tin Roof. In the author’s opinion, it does not deal simply with a meaningful reference; on the contrary, the accurate analysis of Williams’s text proves that it is a true nuclear and cohesive element of the whole drama.
