OMG! He's cute!
Hey Sugar, how old are you handsome?
Could this be the place?
What's the matter honey? Are you lost?
Let's meet our new contestant: Blanncchhheeee Duboissss!!!! Some call her the Human Mess because her entire life is well.... just one big mess!! She hits on young boys and drinks until she can no longer stand, give it up for the one and only... Ms. Blanche!
I flirted with your husband!! And I liked it!
In the very beginning of the novel, Blanche is described as a very beautiful lady whom seems to be dressed very elegantly. " Her appearance is incongruous to this setting. She is daintily dressed in a white suit with a fluffy bodice, necklace and earrings of pearl, white gloves and hat, looking as if she were arriving at a summer tea or cocktail party in the garden district."
Get in line boys! There's enough of me to go around!
They describe Blanche as a very elegant woman whom looks out of place in this old town. She is seen as sophisticated and seemingly to good for her surroundings. In reality, woman are seen to be highly fashionable and are looked upon as a blessing. This reflects to gender in our society for the reason that women have always been revered for their beauty and elegance.
In Scene 2, Blanche and Stella are having a conversation when Blanche says " "I called him a little boy and laughed and flirted. Yes, I was flirting with your husband!"
Blanche is an unstoppable, flirtatious woman that seems to find interest in just about every man, even her brother-in-law! Woman are known as the ultimate temptation, and we are shown that through Blanche's constant flirting. Blanche's action reflects those of many women in our current society whom use their beauty to tempt men into doing what they want.
Tennessee Williams uses the character of Blanche to strongly generalize majority of women. This is like life for the fact that women's roles have changed dramatically over the years and that they have more power than they ever have. Temptation plays a big part in this, and Williams uses Blanche to effectively portray women.
