I say that Ouiser is the antagonist because her attitude is always terrible like something bad is always happening to her. When Annelle came in to the hair salon, Ouiser was not very welcoming when she just started asking a bunch of personal questions to her and forcing her to talk about something she obviously didn’t want to talk about. Of these two, I believe the most challenging character to play would be Ouiser because you would’ve to almost be in a bad mood yourself so you can play the character better. My favorite character of the play is Annelle because she started from nothing and got a job and made friends out of it. From there, she found her boyfriend who she married and now has a child with.
Although the protagonists of “Fahrenheit 451” and “A Streetcar Named Desire” live in two drastically different societies, both are not satisfied with their current way of living and desire a change and improvement in their life. In “A Streetcar Named Desire”, the title of the play itself signifies Blanche’s desire to escape from the reality of her life, as she is haunted by her past and is currently living a life of insecurity, due to the loss of Belle Reve. Ironically, the streetcar named Desire did not bring her to what she truly wanted, an end of all her problems, and she in fact lost her sanity. The reason for Blanche’s tragic ending is due to the avoidance of her problems, shown metaphorically in the form of a flimsy paper lantern on top of a lamp. It temporarily hid all her secrets and simultaneously covered the reality of life from Blanche’s eyes, but when Mitch rips off the paper lantern Blanche realises that all was revealed.

Tennessee Williams is acclaimed for his ability to create multi faced characters such as Blanche Dubois in the play, A Streetcar Named Desire. She comes to New Orleans after losing everything including her job, money, and her family’s plantation Belle Reve, to live with her sister Stella. During her time there she causes many conflicts with Stella’s husband Stanley and tries to get involved with the people there, all while judging them for their place in society, although she is imperfect too. Through her, Williams has created a complex character. She is lost, confused, conflicted, lashing out in sexual ways, and living in her own fantasies throughout the entirety of the play.

Men naturally are deemed as having higher status than women in society. The status of women relies on affiliation by association, their religious status, children, and race, therefore obtaining power proves to be a challenge for many.

To begin with, Tituba gains power by instilling fear in the city. During the beginning of the act, the Puritans regard Tituba as powerless and defenseless because of societies racial perceptions.
Hilly is a cruel character, one that people shouldn’t listen to in the first place, but her societal status and threatening stance on life makes everyone deathly afraid to get on her bad side, especially Celia. The fact that Hilly treats Celia with such spite for marrying her ex-boyfriend and everyone goes along with it is astonishing and yet, in Jacksonville, it is the norm. Celia is not a terrible person for being raised in Sugar Ditch, but she is treated like one. Her love for Hollywood couture makes her glamorous, not obnoxious, and her love for her black maid makes her caring, not daring. Furthermore, we can conclude that the society around her values friendship and status—however corrupt.

As subject of the family losing their plantation is brought up, Blanche instantly puts the fault on Stella making her the guilty one because she was never around to help.

Music publishers occupied buildings on each side of West twenty Eighth Street, and a few may be found in offices round the corner on Broadway, or simply west of Sixth Avenue. At just one occasion or another, between 1893 and 1910, the subsequent publishers were situated on the Alley (note that many enraptured from one address to another).
