This is clearly evident in A Streetcar Named Desire, one of Williams?s many plays. In analyzing the main character of the story, Blanche DuBois, it is crucial to use both the literal text as well as the symbols of the story to get a complete and thorough understanding of her. Before one can understand Blanche?s character one must understand the reason why she moves to New Orleans and joins her sister, Stella, and brother-in-law, Stanley. By analyz

    As the debate over pornography and its place in society grows hotter every day, several authors in particular shed a new light on the subject.

    During the course of this play the only two female characters that appear are Gertrude and Ophelia. Often we find that both are left deliberately open and sketchy in their portrayal leading some critics to argue that Shakespeare does not feel the need to concentrate on these characters in a play based mainly around male tragedy and corruption, while leading others to believe that their ambivalent nature is a precise and natural quality captured purposefully through their actions. For Gertrude a vital scene is that of Act 3 Scene 4. In summary, this scene is where Hamlet visits the Queen, pr

    The term “homosexuality” is a relatively new term coming into existence as recently as the late 1800’s , early 1900’s. For a long time, homosexuality was viewed as a disease or even a mental illness. The American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual listed homosexuality within its pages until December of 1973. This change left people believing that homosexuality was a choice, as if they could choose the people who their bodies displayed feelings of attraction towards.
