Blanche is in many ways a wounded soul. She represents the epitomy of a happily ever after becoming the nightmare the next day. She is also a victim of society. She's a 'fallen woman' as far as society is concerned. She is emotionally damaged, which is why she literally and symbollically avoids the light.
