    A Streetcar Named Desire A Streetcar Named Desire Tennessee Williams is known for his powerfully written psychological dramas.

    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. There are a number of ways that Blanche seems to represent the faded grandeur of the American past. Perhaps the most obvious one is her difficulty fitting in with life in New Orleans. From the beginning we see Blanche does not fit in with the people of her new community, nor her physical surroundings in her new home.

THANKS - ASHLEY In the play, A Streetcar Named Desire, author Tennessee Williams does a wonderful job developing the character of Stanley Kowalski.

On the other hand, Stella, Stanleys wife, is mainly displayed as being the loving type, and because that is basically the only character trait she displays, it is difficult to really understand her as a person. The character of Stanley Kowalski is developed much like a real person, having numerous personality traits. One charac ...

    Streetcar Named Desire Tennessee Williams A Streetcar Named Desire is considered by many critics to be what is called a flawed masterpiece. This is because Williams work utilizes and wonderfully blends both tragic and comic elements that serve to shroud the true nature of the hero and heroine thereby not allowing the reader to judge them on solid actuality. Hence, Williams has been compared to writers such as Shakespeare who in literature have created a sense of ambiguity and uncertainty in finding a sole view or aspect in their works. Because of the highly tragic elements encountered in Streetcar, many immediately label it tragedy. Nevertheless, the immense comical circumstances encounter ...
