Beyond Black and White: Aspects of Race in Tennessee William’s A Streetcar Named Desire
Halmstad University, School of Teacher Education (LUT).
2003 (English)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
Abstract [en]
This essay brings up aspects of race in A Streetcar Named Desire by analysing the three main characters (Stanley Kowalski, Stella Kowalski and Blanche DuBois) and the presence of music from a racial point of view. The essay highlights how Stanley, despite his white appearance, fulfils criteria for a stereotypical black man. By discussing female sexuality, traces of blackness are observed also in Stella and Blanche. moreover, Tennessee Williams’s choice of black music puts emphasis on the racial discourse: The importance of ethnical background and the feeling of racial and cultural belonging are significant factors for the overall discourse. The binary oppositions black and white are discussed, but the aim of the essay is to reach a conclusion beyond those poles and to show how things in A Streetcar Named Desire are more complex than just black and white.
