  • Blanche Named Desire: Character Analysis: Stella Kowalski '

    1. In terms of casting for Stella Kowalski, the actress would have to be young and gentle looking. She would also most likely be of average beauty. In the play Stella is described as, “…a gentle young woman, about twenty-five, and of a background obviously quite different from her husband” (1778). This meaning that her husband is rough looking while Stella is delicate and small. Another example of Stella being slightly delicate is how Blanche refers to her. Blanche calls her a “precious lamb” (1781). Even though the name is endearing, it is a term most commonly used when speaking to small children or to babies as a lamb is very small and very delicate. The actress would also have to have a “radiant smile” (1784). So the actress would need to be young, gentle looking and is delicate in figure and in the way she presents her lines to the audience. 2. Stella’s reactions to Stanley: • When Stanley yells up to Stella, she responds “Mildly” (1778) • When Stanley throws the package up to Stella, she “cries out it protest but manages to catch it: then she laughs breathlessly” (1778) • Stella is always eager to be with Stanley like asking to go watch him bowl (1778) • Stella is protective of Stanley when Blanche asks, “Will it be decent?” (1783) and Stella responds, “Stanley is Polish, you know.” (1783) • “She jumps up and kisses him” (1788). • Stella tries to be commanding; “You come out with me while Blanche is getting dressed” (1790). • Stella is the submissive partner, “Stanley…

  • Character Analysis Lady Brett Ashley

    My initial feeling towards Lady Brett Ashley is that she is a woman with a false sense of self-understanding. She behaves as if she is in control, doing what she wants and taking what is hers, but is clueless to the fact that what she is after won’t give her contentment. Her aimless attempts to fill what is missing in her life at the expense of her lovers and friends makes me feel that she is a manipulative and harmful person. However, as the story continues and I reflect further on Brett as a…
