Stella’s Choice - Re-read A Streetcar Named Desire



Tennessee Williams’ A Streetcar Named Desire reveals Blanche’s tragic fate in the period of social change from the perspective of sexual conflict, and reveals the contest between the declining traditional civilization of the South and the emerging industrial civilization in American history. The play renders symbolism to show incisively and vividly the collision between the industrial civilization of the north and the planting civilization of the south, as well as the collision between personal fantasy and the reality of that time. In order to highlight the theme better, the writer skillfully uses various symbolic techniques to make the tragic fate of the heroine full of strong appeal, thus successfully deducing the tragedy of the fall of modern society.
