This storyboard does not have a description.
Stanley Kowalski is the head of the household, the provider. He demands expects Stella to respect him and take care of him. If he is challenged, he will cir come to violence. "[He hurls a plate to the floor.] STANLEY: That's how I'll clear the table! "
"STANLEY:Catch! STELLA:What? STANLEY:Meat! [He heaves the package at her. She cries out in protest but manages to catch it; then she laughes breathlessly. Her husband and his companion have already started back around the corner.] "
The first key moment is gender commentary because it shows how "manly" Stanley is and it asserts his dominance from the get go. He throws a hunk of meat to his wife and just simply walks away afterwards. This connects to the prompt because it conveys how society was very male dominant and the women were supposed to just deal with it.
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 I What do you two think you 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!
This conveys how when Stanley's masculinity is threatened, he quickly becomes hostile. A man's home is his kingdom and no one is allowed to rule except for him. If someone dares to run things, it'll only end badly for them.
Playwright Tennessee Williams utilized the actions of Stanley Kowalski in A street Car Named Desire in order to convey that in our society, is the man who holds all the power. The man is supposed to provide and run the household. Women are meant to stay in their lane and clean the house essentially. They are meant to be beneath men and are supposed to just sit there and look pretty, not disrespect the man.
