Hi! My name is Stanley. I exist in T. Williams Play to counterbalance the feminism of "other" people and exert my masculinity.
"My clothes 're stickin' to me. Do you mind if I make myself comfortable?" Scene 1
"I want my baby down here. Stella, Stella!"(Scene 3) By begging Stella to come back after the big fight at the poker table, Stanley reveals his insecurities despite his masculine front nature.
Stanley's sudden need and desire for Stella to come back downstairs explicitizes the male gender inbalance between society's desire for men to be strong and powerful, yet the human quality of fragile emotions.
"I can't marry you....You're not clean enough to bring in the house with my mother" Scene 5
The relationship between Blanche and Mitch is one with a reverse relation in which the masculine figure serves as a check on the feminine figure and not vice versa. This inversion was clearly evident in the contextual setting of the play.
A Streetcar Named Desire features gender roles and qualities within the symbolic light of two pervasive, inverted relationships. With one case the man being dominant and with the other the female, Tennesse Williams paints the moral of gender qualities as a mere abstract and idiomatic component of mankind that can't be defined in a simplistic manner.
