Essay Topics

Essay Topic 1

Stanley is obviously having a good time making Blanche squirm as he reveals her deception. Why do you think he enjoys this so much? What does Stanley stand to gain from finding out the lies about Blanche? Do you think Stanley feels badly at all about Blanche's life up to this point? Why or why not?

Essay Topic 2

Mitch is an interesting character from the start. He doesn't seem to be like the others, and yet, he doesn't really seem to have a grip on his life or his future. Why do you think Mitch falls for Blanche? Why do you think he can't get past her sordid past? Would these two have made a good couple? Why or why not?

Essay Topic 3

As a last resort, it seems, Blanche heads to her sister's apartment to seek refuge. Why do you think Blanche decided to go to her sister? What does Stella have to offer that no one else can? What do you think Blanche expects from Stella?
