She fantasizes about telling the invalid man she reads the newspaper to that he is “having the paper read to him by an actress” (330),
Hairspray? You don’t see your sister using that junk” (Oates 1) and her father always away for the work and never bothered to interact with Connie.

The death of her relatives causes a downward spiral in Blanche’s financial situation. Her mannerisms show a woman trapped in the lifestyle of fortune, one she refuses to leave behind even after the money has been lost. The loss of Belle Reve is devastating to Blanche and is one reason she spins out of control. As Susan Hawthorne described in her analysis of A Streetcar Named Desire, “She hangs on to what vestiges of gentility she can, but this serves only to alienate rather than to shield her. Tender and delicate, like the moth she resembles, Blanche is unable to survive in the harsh reality of modern society”
