A Street Car Named Desire
This storyboard does not have a description.
Since the earliest manhood the center of Stanley's life has been pleasure with women, the giving and taking of it, not weak indulgence, dependently but with the power and pride of a richly feathered male bird among hens. Scene 1
"She cries out in protest.. her husband and his companion have already started around the corner." Scene 1, page 14
This shows the gender role in this book because he is forcing a meat packet upon her when she cannot handle it. Williams uses these actions from Stanley to describe the dominance in a patriachial society. he throws the meat packet upon Stella without having a care in the world if she needs help with it or not
"And I am the king around here, so don't forget it!" scene 8, page 107
This demonstrates the patriarchal society as Stanley continues to degrade Stella by using the word "king." As he uses this word it shows readers that he feels that he is the ruler of everything and has total control.
Life is like this because in this time period men dominated the society and were seen as more powerful. Tennessee Williams uses Stanley's violent actions and words to portray the patriarchal society in A Street Car Named Desire. It demonstrates that all men care about is power amoung women and others
