About Abuse

Emily Evan's Blog and Renee Belville's Bolgs both have a focus on abuse in the play A Streetcar Named Desire. Renee's blog paid more attention to Stella's acceptance of abuse and denial. Just as long as he fixed what he broke everything was back to normal “The radio is fixed. It didn’t land on the pavement so only one tube was smashed” (64). Renee also mentioned that drinking was a big factor in Stanley's behavior according to Stella, “He promised this morning that he was going to quit having these poker parties, but you know how long such a promise is going to keep. Oh well, it’s his pleasure…”(65). In Emily's blog she is more concerned with static's in regaurd to marital abuse and rape. I think that Renee and Emily where both very informative in their blog presentations and supported their points with useful links.
