Fantasy and Illusion in A Streetcar Named Desire - “Illusions commend themselves to us because they save us pain and allow us to enjoy pleasure instead. We must therefore accept it without complaint when they sometimes collide with a bit of reality against which they are dashed to pieces” (Sigmund Freud). Illusion can be a part of our lives; however, if taken to the extreme, it can lead one to forget reality. Every individual has problems in life that must be faced with reality and not with illusion, even though it might throw one into flames of fires....   [tags: A Streetcar Named Desire Essays]

Exposing the Truth in A Streetcar Named Desire - Tennessee Williams’ A Streetcar Named Desire is a play that needs no introduction. This complex piece of drama is most readily associated with Marlon Brando’s iconic portrayal of Stanley Kowalski’s lamenting cry in the streets of New Orleans. Stanley screams STELL-LAHHHHH!, and his “heavenly-splitting violent” cry only emphasizes the voicelessness of the female characters (Williams 2322). Despite Blanche’s ability to hold her own in verbal sparring matches or Stella’s lively demeanor, both women are oppressively held under the thumbs of various men....   [tags: A Streetcar Named Desire Essays]

Blanche DuBois in A Streetcar Named Desire - While watching A Streetcar named Desire, the character of Blanche Dubois at first appeared to be a weak self-absorbed southern woman, when really what started coming from her character was a flawed personality. What is not known is whether this is something that runs in the family, or has only shown itself through Blanche. Since this was during a time when mental illness was not yet studied deeply, the way Blanche is treated while succumbing to her illness and how she was sent off to the mental hospital was rather archaic....   [tags: A Streetcar Named Desire Essays]
