A Streetcar Named Desire

By Tennessee Williams (6)

Show/Hide Info

In A Streetcar Named Desire, Tennessee Williams creates a brilliant portrait of a sensitive schoolteacher on the edge of nervous collapse. Blanche DuBois arrives at the home of her pregnant sister Stella, who has married a working-class man named Stanley Kowalski. Blanche has lost the family estate, and has nowhere else to turn. Stella’s lower-class husband, neighborhood, and squalid apartment deeply offend Blanche, and she quickly alienates the pugnacious Stanley. Although Stella does not wish to separate from her husband, Blanche tries to persuade her to leave him, and marry someone who would be her equal. The unhappy, alcoholic Blanche grasps at happiness when she forms a relationship with Stanley’s friend, Mitch, but the growing animosity between her and Stanley takes an ugly turn. Stanley tells Mitch of Blanche’s past, and Mitch breaks off their engagement. A final violent scene between Blanche and Stanley tips the unstable woman into severe illness, and the play concludes with her departure to a mental institution. With its penetrating insight into human relationships, and the illusions that both sustain and distort lives, A Streetcar Named Desire is an appropriate and noteworthy read for the high school level.
