A Street Car Named Desire
The Many Traits of Blanch
Everyone has relatives that come and visit. Some people don¹t like their relatives and they hate when relatives visit. Tennessee Williams shows this feeling between Stanley and Blanch in the book A Street Car Named Desire. It is the things that Blanch says and does that makes Stanley dislike her. Blanch is vein, untruthful, and is seductive.
Blanch is a very vein person. A lot of the things she does is so she looks good. Stanley first discovers this in ³Scene Two²:
Stanley: Look at these feathers and furs that she come here to preen herself in!
He believes that she was swindling them, so he looks through her trunk and discovers a lot of fancy looking clothing and jewelry.
Blanch has also been noted in ³Scene Two² saying that she was vein When she was talking to Stanley:
Stanley: It looks like you raided some stylish shops in Paris
Blanch: Ha-ha! Yes-clothes are my passion!
She does not directly say she is vein but it is implied.
Another time that she is noted for being vein is in ³Scene Ten²,
this is when Stanley and Blanch are yelling at each other:
Stanley: And look at yourself! Take a look at yourself in that worn out Mardi Gras outfit, rented for fifty cents from some rag- picker! And with the crazy crown on! What queen do you think you are?
Stanley: I¹ve been on to you from the start! Not once did you pull any wool over this boy¹s eyes! You come in here and sprinkle the place with power and spray perfume and cover the light bulb with a paper lantern, and lo and behold the place has turned into Egypt and you are the Queen of the Nile! Sitting on your throne swilling down my liquor! I say-Ha!-Ha! Do you hear me? Ha-ha-ha!
He is saying that she tries to look glamorous with her clothes and her jewelry, but he can see through that and she does not look glamorous at
One of Blanch¹s strong traits is that is a compulsive liar. In ³Scene Three² she admits to Stanley that she lies a lot.
Blanch: All right. Cards on the table. That suits me. [She turns to Stanley.] I know I fib a good deal. After all a woman¹s charm is fifty present illusion, but when a thing is important I tell
the truth and this is the truth: I haven¹t cheated my sister or you or anyone else as long as I have lived.
Although Blanch lies a lot, and she even admits to it. In that paragraph she is not lying, as far as anyone can tell about what she is telling Stanley.
In ³Scene Ten² Stanley and Blanch have been talking and Stanley has been listen to Blanch lie to him.
Blanch: But then he came back. He returned with a box of roses to beg for my forgiveness! He implored my forgiveness. But some things are not forgivable. Deliberate cruelty is not forgivable. It is the one unforgivable thing in my opinion and it is the one thing of which I have never, never have been guilty. And so I told him, I said to him, ³Thank you,² but it was foolish of me to think that we could ever adapt ourselves to each other. Our ways of life are too different. Our attitudes and our backgrounds are incompatible. We have to be realistic about such things. So farewell, my friend! And let there be no hard feelings...
Stanley: Was this before or after the telegram came from the Texas oil millionaire?
Blanch: What telegram! No! No, after! As a matter of fact, the wire
came just as-
Stanley: As a matter of fact there wasn\'t no wire at all!
Blanch: Oh, oh!
Stanley: There isn¹t no millionaire! And Mitch didn¹t come back with roses Œcause I know where he is-
Stanley: There isn¹t a god dam thing but imagination!
Stanley: And lies and conceit and tricks!
Stanley had gotten sick of listening to Blanch¹s lies, so he tells her that he knows about the lies, conceit and tricks.
When Blanch lies to people she is deceiving them which can hurt the deceived, and in the end the deceiver. In
