Storyboard Text

  • Brief Introduction
  • Steve
  • Stanley
  • Mitch
  • Key Moment
  • "If I didn't know that you was my wife's sister I'd get ideas about you!"
  • "My, but you have an impressive judicial air!"
  • Explanation
  • "Don't play so dumb. You know what!"
  • "More laughter and shouts of parting come from the men. Stanley throws the screen door of the kitchen open and comes in. He is of medium height, about five feet eight or nine and strongly, compactly built... Since earliest manhood the center of his life has been pleasure with women, the giving and taking of it..."
  • Second Key Moment
  • "There is such a thing in this state of Louisiana as the Napoleonic code, according to which whatever belongs to my wife is also mine--and vice versa."
  • Explanation
  • "I AM THE BOSS"
  • The first key moment of gender commentary occurs when Stanley imposes his masculine characteristics upon Blanche. By demonstrating that whatever Stella owns is his he emphasizes the key ideas of society in the 20th century. Women in this time period were still considered second class citizens. Stanley in this manner is able to show that men are the head of the house, men are the ones that make the rules, men are the ones that they should respect and tend to.
  • Synthesis of Both Moments
  • "WE OWN EVERYTHING"
  • "That's how I'll clear the table! [He seizes her arm] Don't ever talk that way to me!... What do you think you are? A pair of queens?"
  • "Mr. Kowalski is too busy making a pig of himself to think of anything else!"
  • In this quote the author portrays a scene of uncalled violence. In this manner Stanley is able to emphasize the physical inequality that exists between genders. This reaction further helps to emphasize the wide gap that existed between males and females in the 20th century. This physical abuse towards the innocence of females serves to reveal the fact that women must accept the mistreatment that they receive in order for life to continue.
  • "We are sorry!!"
  • Both of these quotes serve to reveal the fact that women in this time period held no say in what they could do, say, or own. Stanley throughout this play makes it very obvious that he is the one with power. His dominant male characteristics, reveals that society during the 20th century was a society that revolved around physical attributes, rather than characteristics that define the morals and beliefs of an individual.
