On this day in 1983, acclaimed playwright Tennessee Williams passed away.

In honor of the event, Literary Hub took a look all the way back to the first piece of writing that Williams ever had published.

And given the now-classic rocky relationships he would later create, it seems appropriate that he submitted an essay supposedly written by a divorced man wounded by a woman's infidelity.

Learn more about how Williams won the Smart Set magazine writing contest when he was just sixteen in Lit Hub.

Williams won the Pulitzer Prize for the plays A Streetcar Named Desire and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and is also celebrated for The Glass Menagerie and The Night of the Iguana.
