  • Exam Question: A Streetcar Named Desire - 1,045 words
    Exam Question: A Streetcar Named Desire Exam Question: How does Williams suggest that Blanche Dubois represents the faded grandeur of the American past? Explore the ways in which Williams presents conflict between the worlds of Blanche Dubois and Stanley Kowalski.

    ... be close to Stella and at times it seems that Blanche is jealous of the relationship between Stella and Stanley. Blanches music contrasts with the blue piano. This clear distinction is one of the conflicts between Blanche and Stanley as well as Blanche and that area of New Orleans. The polka music is first heard at the end of scene one when Blanche tells of how she was once married, but the boy died. This music reoccurs when Blanche mentions this incident later on in the play. Stanley is also a direct contrast to Blanche with the clothes he wears. At the poker night in scene three, he is wearing a solid coloured shirt, as are the other players. Stanley is in charge and dominates the grou ...

    ... oks, Inc. Why Capital Punishment Should be Abolished Unlike popular belief, the death penalty does not act as a deterrent to criminals. As stated by Alfred Blumstein, Expert after expert and study after study has shown the lack of correlation between the treat of the death penalty and the occurrence of violent crimes. (Blumstein 68) Isaac Ehrlich's study on the limiting effects of capital punishment in America reveals this to the public.

(IV.v.7-10) This means Ophelia's speech is meaningless, but this chaotic state makes those who hear it try to make sense of it. They are am ...
