Storyboard Text

  • Blanche is a women with special interests that benefit her. From the beginning, Williams informs the audience about Blanche's character. It's a quick transition from the different type of women that is Stella and Blanche, and more specifically gender roles in society. "What? Two rooms, did you say?" is a way in which Blanche introduces her personality.
  • "Y'know how indifferent I am to money. I think of money in terms of what it does for you." (A streetcar names desire, pg. 67)
  • This key moment is significant in the beginning of the story because it not only introduces the character itself but it also shows what the women character is interested in. Blanche demonstrates her interest in money and why she thinks its important. This answers the prompt because Blanche's actions and wording of her interests gives an example about gender in society. Different women are interested in different stuff depending on what benefits them the best.
  • "I am going to take just one little tiny nip more, sort of to put the stopper on, so to speak... Then put the bottle away so I won't get tempted." (A streetcar named desire, pg. 22)
  • In this key moment Blanche shows how she can't handle being around stuff without her being tempted to have it. This does not only explain her temptation for a drink but it is one temptation of many others. This is a gender commentary because for women in society is very easy to fall for temptations, specially for something they really want and in this case a drink. Temptations test an individual's strength to say no, and in society for women that may be hard.
  • The character's descriptions and actions clearly help the audience understand what the author wants to demonstrate about the female gender. Blanche has made mistakes due to her actions and desires which could be said that other women act the same and have the same interests. People wish to have many stuff that could be hard to obtain but they will eventually do whatever it is possible to get what they want, even if it is good or bad.
