This storyboard does not have a description.
Stanley Kowalski from the beginning of the play is seen as a man who is passionate about his life in every aspect. The way in which he carries himself makes him seem as the typical chauvinistic male of he time which contributes to the play as a whole and how society of the time viewed the role of a man.
Scene 2 Page 35 "You're simple, straightforward and honest, a little bit on the primitive side I should think. To interest you a women would have to-..."
This description of Stanley by Blanche helps give the reader a clear pin point of the type of man he truly is. It shows how the man in society has a sort of brute dominance or so is portrayed in the play. It shows how people like Stanley were able to control and obtain the desire in which they seek out.
Scene 3 Page 60 "You can't beat on a women an' then call' er back! She won't come! And her goin' t' have a baby!...You stinker! You whelp of Polack, you! I hope they do haul you in and turn the fire hose on you, same as last time!"
This commentary on Stanley helps shed light on his brutish nature and the way he treats his wife. He feels as if he can hit her and she will be expected to still come back to him, which she does. Through his he is able to continue his sporadic behavior. He is portrayed as a man that represents the male dominated society in which he lives and thrives in.
These key moments help bring together the ideals of society at the time in which reliance of women on men was seen as a common normality. Stanley symbolized the hurt, but also the happiness for Stella, and this helps bring how people have the right intentions, but live a fantasy as to how their life should really play out.
