《欲望号街车》中象征手法的应用-On Symbolism in A Streetcar Named Desire


1. Introduction  引言

Tennessee Williams was one of the most important and talented playwright of all history. One of his masterpieces, A Streetcar Named Desire, which was opened on Broadway in 1947, was an immediate success, catapulting him into the mainstream idolatry as an American playwright.


By now, scholars have paid much attention to various aspects in A Streetcar Named Desire. For example, Fang Jun and Liu Nuoya probe into the mature of the dramatic technique the poetic realism through meticulous study on the symbolic and expressionistic writing techniques and the interrelations of them in The Glass Menagerie and A Streetcar Named Desire (23). In Desire, Death and Dementia, researches have been put into analysis of the protagonist with understanding of symbolism (杨晋, 2002: 36-38) . 


2. Study of Individual Symbols  个人象征的研究

2.1 On Names
At the beginning of the play, readers are confronted with extremely obvious symbolic names of places. When Blanche arrives at her sister’s place, she says, “They told me to take a street-car named Desire, and then transfer to one called Cemeteries and ride six blocks and get off at Elysian Fields.” (Williams, 1978: 471) Thus, it is possible he represents a cemetery for Blanche. Stanislaus is the name of a king of Poland. Clearly, Stanley is the king of his household.
2.2 On Colors
When Blanche first appears, she is described as “daintily dressed in a white suit with a fluffy bodice, necklace and earrings of pearl, white gloves and hat”. (Williams 471) Blanche's white suit and gloves which are the symbol of purity shows her desire for purity and suggests that she wants to forget her sordid past, to hide her inner sins and to stay as an image of a dainty old south beauty. This is very ironic because white also is the color which is the most easily stained and destroyed. 

3. On Symbolic Understanding of Characters  对人物性格理解的象征主义

A Streetcar Named Desire can be described as an elegy, or poetic expression of mourning, for the Old South that died in the first part of the twentieth century. Alcoholism, depression, thwarted desire, loneliness, and insanity are all parts of this play. The character of Blanche Dubois is a vivid example of the use of symbolism throughout the play. Blanche is victim of her own self-delusions and Old South attitudes.
3.1 Victim of Self-delusions
Blanche arrives in New Orleans as an arrogant, fragile, and ultimately crumbling figure. Clinging desperately to her self-delusion, unable to accept the savage reality of what has happen论文英语论文网提供整理,提供论文代写英语论文代写代写论文代写英语论文代写留学生论文代写英文论文留学生论文代写相关核心关键词搜索。
