Storyboard Text

  • Stanley The Abusive Alcoholic Husband of Stella a Macho Man
  • 1st Act of of Gender Male Role by Stanley
  • Explanation of Fist Key Moment
  • This is Stanley. Stanley is manly man and takes no crap. He is the epitome of macho men. He is and abusive husband and takes things like a game where he usually wins (sadly)
  • 2nd of Gender Male Role by Stanley
  • Stanley carries his bowling jacket and a red-stained package from a butcher’s. (Scene One, Stage Directions)
  • Explanation why i chose 2nd scene
  • The reason i chose that to be my first example of Male gender role is because this man is literally bringing home the meat for his family and is the bread winner. Him holding his bowling jacket exemplifies his manliness. ( Bit of KING OF THE CASTLE TYPE GUY) Williams uses description of his entrance to show gender role in our society.
  • Synthesis of both Momments
  • STANLEY That’s how I’ll clear the table! [He seizes her arm.] Don’t ever talk that way to me! "Pig – Polack – disgusting – vulgar – greasy!" – them kind of words have been on your tongue and your sister’s too much around here! What do you think you two are? A pair of queens? Remember what Huey Long said – "Every Man is a King!" And I am the King around here, so don’t forget it! (8.14)
  • I chose his scene because this depicts male domination like non other. because Stanley is fed up with the way Stella and Blanch has been talking to them. He is basically schooling them on how he is in charge. Williams uses his words to make that strong gender role in our society, well theirs.
  • Williams uses both the surroundings and description plus the dialogue to clearly show the gender role in their time period. This is like real life as to man being the head of the household but just extreme version
