Storyboard Text

  • STANLEY
  • KOWALSKI
  • In the male dominant play, A Streetcar Named Desire, by Tennessee Williams, the playwright portrays Stanley Kowalski as the classic dominant male. He describes Stanley as "the gaudy seed-bearer," the type of man who believes in a patriarchal household, where women are submissive to men, stay at home in order to take care of their man, and do all the cooking and cleaning, while the man goes to work in order to provide for his family.
  • Elysian Fields
  • Blue Piano
  • Catch!
  • MEAT
  • Me !
  • What?
  • Moreover, in the play, A Streetcar Named Desire, by Tennessee Willaims, the playwright uses Stanley's actions, description, and words in order to describe how during the 1900s men were the providers and heads of their households. Furthermore, they were expected to go to work every day, so they could provide for their families. For example, when Stanley provided Stella with the meat, but it was her job to cook it and have it on the table when he returned. If men could not provide, they would feel like less of a man, as they would have to depend on women. However, most men in the 1900s would unfortunately die before they depended on a woman to provide. On the other hand, women were expected to stay at home and tend to their house and husband, meaning cooking, cleaning, sexual pleasure and serving the man of the household. Women basically had no say so, whatever was said by a man would go. This is like life as even now men are expected to provide and some women still choose to serve.
