This storyboard does not have a description.
"Stanley carries his bowling jacket and his red-stained package..." (Page 12)
"When you're done, go do my laundry.
Stanley portrays many stereotypical traits of men during the 1900's, wanting to control everything in their grasp. Stanley demonstrates these qualities in taking dominance over his wife's entire possessions.
"You see under the Napoleonic Code- a man has to take interest in his wife's affairs- especially now that shes going to have a baby." (Page 48)
Tennessee Williams uses an abundance of imagery and description of Stanley's appearance to depict the manhood that he portrays to the characters around him.
Williams presents statements abut gender throughout this play, with the use of stage directions as well as diction to convey Stanley's full primitive-male character witnessed by the audience. As society predicts this stereotypical man he is, Stanley's actions and dialogue confirm his character traits predicted by the audience in Williams' writing.
