What is landmark drama?

The blurb at the back of the book I'm reading, "A Streetcar Named Desire" says that it's a landmark drama. What is a landmark drama?
It means that it is a landmark in drama. I.e. a game-changing, important play.

Have you enjoyed it so far?

Yes, a lot! Wow, and I thought it's some type of drama, ignoring the glaringly obvious meaning!
Silly me! :smile:

Haha great news! It happens all the time, english lit. jargon can be a mind bender. Have you got a book of literary terms? I had one at university, and it was a life saver.

Tennessee Williams is incredible, you should watch/read some of his other plays. I suppose you have watched the Marlon Brando film too?

Glad the mystery is resolved.

Yea I know...
No, I've only watched parts of the movie...
But Stanley just looks so much more normal in the movie! In the book, he sounds very animalistic...
