In the opening scene, Williams structures the scene to highlight the extremes in American society and their struggle to coexist in 1940s America. Blanches pretentions to be upper class is clear when introduced to Stellas black neighbour. From a plantation Estate family, Blanche would be shocked to see her sisters neighbour is black, let alone her landlady We own this place, so I can let you in. Williams develops the awkward conversation, once inside, as Blanche still aims to maintain an air of superiority. Eunice: its real sweet.Blanche: Is it?Eunice: Uh, huh, I think so. So youre Stellas sister?Blanche: Yes [wanting to get rid of her] Thanks for letting me inWilliams causes the audience to feel uncomfortable watching the differences between the two characters demonstrated in Blanches minimal and often monosyllabic responses. By juxtaposing the two women, Williams demonstrates through the dialogue and stage directions both the black womans struggle to be respected as an equal in 1940s New Orleans, and the alienation and dislocation felt by a white woman descended from a plantation family who has had to sell her estate since the end of slavery. Williams immediately creates a scene of New Orleans as a melting pot of cultures with its blue piano, but also one of decay and tension: which invests the scene with a kind of lyricism and gracefully attenuates the atmosphere of decay .Can you identify:
