Transcript of A Streetcar Named Desire-Scene three-Poker-Tension-Uproar
Stanleys' action: "Stanley gives a loud whack of his hand on her thigh."
Surroundings: "The raw colors of childhood's spectrum"
Stanleys thoughts:"Aw, for God's sake, go home, then!" Tennessee Williams creates an atmosphere of tension and drama through the separation of male and female in the house (the curtain which separates the two rooms in the apartment being the physical symbol of this division) and by portraying a clear dominance by the men (Stanley's dominance). Already the audience begins to sense a tense atmosphere amongst Stanley's peers.He continues to show the same attitude towards the women building up the tension further. The fact that Stanley treats the women in the same violent manner may also cause a surprised reaction from the modern audience. Stanley also encourages this growing tension by slapping Stella's thing which she seems to find disrespectful. She says, "That's not fun, Stanley."
