This storyboard does not have a description.
In the play, Stanley portrays the classic stereotype of a man. He is described as loud, obnoxious, dirty, and violent. For example, "Stanley carries his bolwing Jacket a red stained package from a butcher's". Two part of this quote show his masculinity. One being he was coming back from a bowling alley which are generally a male dominated place full of loose testosterone, and the fact he is carrying a chunk of meat like a savage. Which throughout society providing food on the table has been known as a mans job.
"You see, under the Napoleonic code- a man has to take an interest in his wife's affairs- especially now she's going to have a baby".
Throughout the play Stanley constantly makes allusions to Napolean. Historically Napolean is a great leader, soldier, and intelligent man. He is the epitomy of the character everyman should have. By Stanley referencing him so much in a way it is almost like he strives to follow the French leaders ways and idolizes him. Thus further exemplifying Stanleys role as a dominant male or other wise known as an Alpha male.
MITCH I’m out again. I oughta go home pretty soon. STANLEY Shut up. MITCH I gotta sick mother. She don’t go to sleep until I come in at night.
While at the poker table one of Stanleys friends, Mitch has a moment of weakness by declaring he has to go home because of his mom. You can tell Stanley had a negative insight on the subject because he quickly tells Mitch to shut up. Displaying Stanleys pride in upholding masculinity especially when playing a game such as poker. Also it gives him an alpha male status because Mitch does not retaliate back to the shut up instead he blurts out reason backing up his statement. Therefore among the group Stanley appears to be the leader.
Both moments display the menatality of Stanley. It shows who he looks up to and even how he makes vertain to maintain his dominant male stigma. Throughout the play it only progresses more and more through the actions of the character and how submissive the people around him are. In society men who do not act like this are often times viewed as weak and are often times treated that way. In all societies there is one male that leads the pack, and in the case of this play Stanley appears to be the man in charge.
