A Streetcar Named Desire depicts the cultural tension which pervades post-World War II. It was the attempt by an ambitious, idealistic American nation to prove that it could defeat Nazi Germany and its superiority to the international community. Stanley Kowalski (an ex-soldier) was an engineer in the American Army. He later returned to his home. He returned to normal life after many years of fighting. It was an excellent opportunity for hardworking people, who were able to expand their sales business into new territories. It is also a better option for someone who has mastered technician tasks like Mitch, whose ambitions were wide-ranging and his expectancy was liberal. America was described as a melting pot that allowed for intercultural blending. The scene was set in New Orleans.
The brutality of wars made people tired and threatened their lives. There was also discord in commerce, domestic life, and sexuality that hampered peace. This war saw America undergo a significant transformation than the one that occurred during World War I. Before, armies were assembled with a well-known denizen and the time-aggrandized milieu. The reality was not as it seemed, however, because the entire squad was mixed up by different classes, regions and ethnicities. Because Assiduity was so used to war exertion that it required a lot of diligence, It took a lot of effort to absorb the large number of military personnel. The principles of running the business were also discovered. Norman Mailer wrote The Naked and the Dead (1948), partly based upon his experiences during the Philippines Campaign in World War II. It was a story about how war heroes became more cultural than chivalrous. William’s play also had the same idea as that published one year earlier. It is Mailer’s relentless story of a new America that Mailer tells, in which atrocious force and street penetration are repelled by ancient principles of culture. Despite the pot-conflict being too prevalent, William’s New Orleans setting brought to the public attention another contradiction. This was the skirmish with the Southern upper crust spade-workers against the fountainhead of Reconstruction (1865-1877). The “Civil War” was the end of the South’s “Civilization Period”. Many of the Southern elite had to sell their homes to show their subtlety. They were forced to do so because they could not deal with the new economy without sacrificing their customs. Southern were extremely poor as they held no economic place. Because the traditional way allowed a Southern woman to marry an affluent landowner to maintain equilibrium, it was gradually becoming backbreaking. In the 1980s, it was difficult to identify the location of A Streetcar Named Desire because of its ethical and social code about women. Despite contributing to the war effort, the conditions were considered temporary even for the women. The code stipulated that women had to stay at home with their husbands and children. They had to have the same family values as their husbands, and be able to attract men. A code stipulates that she must be a woman for marriage. She was unable break the taboos of her society (though there were some exceptions). Due to cruel rules of discrimination sexually, she was paralysed from any occupation and made a slave of the male society.
This position allowed her to dream unavowed and fantasize if she complied with social norms. This nuncupatory code is reflected in Streetcar. This moral code was more strict for insanity than for homosexuality. Blanche Dubois’ time in Laurel has earned her a poor reputation due to her deplorable aptitude for homosexuality as well as a marked propensity toward aberration. These are all reasons why she is unfit for office. Streetcar was published in 1995. It was praised for its boldness and honesty about social taboos. The play was not as controversial as some might think, but it still contains many amazing elements that make it a jaw-dropping success.
It covered things such as: Blanche’s costume and etiquette; Stanley’s oral, somatic and visual force; representations of social groups; Blanche’s outlandish conceit and the eventual presence of the asylum. Many critics considered William a perverse playwright and debauchee, but his plays still hold a significant place on today’s stage.
