This classical play is about Blanche Dubois's visit to Elysian Fields, her encounters with her sister's brutal and arrogant husband, Stanley Kowalski. Stanley Kowalski, is a very brutal and barbaric person who always has to feel that no one is better than he. Stanley's brutality is shown in several places during the duration of " The Streetcar Named Desire". For example, his first array of brutality is evident at the poker night when he gets so angry and throws the radio out the window.
The pain we cause him. We have poisoned his atmosphere. We have slaughtered his creatures of the wild, polluted his rivers. Their religious belief is completely socio-morphic, it has nothing to do with overcoming egoism and megalomania Christ was talking about.
They are bathing in self-aggrandizement of being associated with God-Son and this provides them with spiritual comfort and pride.
This situation ends for Rev. We see here Ms. With Maxine Shannon understood that he is not as ambitious as he thought he is and that his real dream is simply to be left in peace, less burdened by spiritual and emotional repression. He decided to step back from social life into private existence, to be just an Adam.
But this temporary solution can be the path of liberation for trying to find a more existential spirituality. But behind their robotic mask they keep an indignant and belligerent posture. To erect this character in the film is the exceptional achievement of Tennessee Williams, John Huston and Deborah Kerr.
Why was Shannon successful while Blanche failed? Blanche was all alone while Shannon was helped by several quite exceptional people. Another factor is that Blanche was traumatized by the suicide of her beloved — she was tormented by guilty feelings and weakened by her irrational psychological defenses against the unbearable reality.
Shannon also has his weaknesses but generous and disinterested psychological help made him able to pull through. Hank-honk is pathetic in his readiness to always take the side of official power and in his belief that his mission in a foreign country is to teach foreigners how to behave.
Today we see exactly this psychology in how we Americans behave with innocent civilians in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Latin America, and how the conservative leaders treat poor, needy and pauperizing Americans. Today, there are not many Shannons left among the young Americans, but there are legions of Stanleys.
Almost nobody can anymore discard a job by spiritual reasons. In this sense he is a figure from Old Testament but he is not a person of power. He is punished but the loss of income and status became the path of his liberation. While Shannon is dedicated to the search for truth about himself, Stanley exists only as a social self.
For Stanley there is no other motivation, no other logic than to fight for prosperity and prestigious public image. The important questions here are how many Americans today if they will not have jobs for a protracted period of time will agree to accept jobs of killers of civilians and torturers of suspected enemies.
To be able to love otherness demands much more courage than killing, torturing and even dying do. To share responsibility in love can be compared with sharing of responsibilities in the free market economy when the competitor is allowed to make free decisions and when victory in competition is an open game without any guarantees.
The behavior of Larry Shannon as that of Stanley Kowalski become metaphors of behaviors not only in personal and social relationships but also in economic sphere. How can we define the role of the poet Jonathan Coffin in the semantic structure of the film? How can we describe the personality of Hank, the young bus driver?
What is the basic difference between Shannon and Hank? Which American pop-archetype does Hank personify? What kind of a relationship Ms. Fellowes has with Charlotte Ms.
Can we talk here about Ms. Through which visual images the film defines what Shannon tries to liberate himself from while simultaneously being afraid of losing? What is the symbolism of the gothic contour of the church, of the chain with amethyst cross, of hammock and of the iguana?About A Streetcar Named Desire.
Her concept of love is on a higher level than Stanley's. Shunning the brutality and animality of a Kowalski, she seeks some type of communication, some capacity for devotion. Desire isn't the lustful passion that Stanley regards it, but it is a spiritual need.
Speaking of Mitch, Stella asks her, "Blanche, do. Project Gutenberg Australia a treasure-trove of literature treasure found hidden with no evidence of ownership. A Streetcar Named Desire - When Stanleys hits Stella, she immediately -and passionately- returns to Stanley.
She forgives him and they embrace. This act shows the love and passion in this couple. Stanley (Stella's husband) represents a theme of realism in the play; he is shown as a primitive, masculine character that is irresistible to Stella and on some levels even to his "opponent" Stella's sister Blanche 1 / Street Car Named Desire: Stanley's Brutality Stanley Kowalski's first exhibition of his brutal actions occurs at poker night.
