Part D: Theme Analysis
Quote:"You need somebody. And I need somebody, too. Could it be--you and me, Blanche?"
Mitch and Blanche are drawn together by their mutual need of companionship and support, and they therefore believe themselves right for one another.
With Mitch living with his dying mother, Mitch is noticeably more sensitive than Stanley’s other poker friends. Mitch hopes to marry so that he will have a woman to bring home to his dying mother.
Part D Cont'
Mitch doesn’t fit the bill of the chivalric hero of whom Blanche dreams. He is clumsy, sweaty, and has unrefined interests like muscle building. Though sensitive, he lacks Blanche’s romantic perspective and spirituality, as well as her understanding of poetry and literature. She toys with his lack of intelligence—for example, when she teases him in French because she knows he won’t understand—duping him into playing along with her self-flattering charades.
Even with friends, he feels lonely and wants to be with his dying mother.
Wants to find a wife
