Blanche DuBois[edit]

  • They told me to take a streetcar named "Desire", transfer to one called "Cemetery", ride six blocks and get off, at Elysian Fields.

Dialogue[edit]

Stella: But there are things that happen, between a man and a woman, in the dark, that sorta make everything else seem unimportant.
Blanche: What you are talking about is brutal desire. Just desire. The name of that rattletrap streetcar that bangs through the Quarter, up one old narraw street and down another.
Stella: Haven't you ever ridden that streetcar?
Blanche: It brought me here, where I'm not wanted, and where I'm ashamed to be.
