In A Streetcar Named Desire several of the characters use illusion to make themselves more sociably acceptable This is true especially for Blanche Du Bois She will lie or elude any chance she gets if it will make her look good Stella uses the illusion of a happy marriage to make her life bearable Some people such as Blanche would much rather live in a dream world of blissful ignorance than face the facts On the contrary Stanley is a business type of guy that thinks that false happiness isnt real happiness It his hard to tell whether or not Blanche is a nonstop liar or just out of her mind She is so terrified that people will hate her for not having a perfect past that she lies about everything She just cant realize that while she may be in love with the fake others hate being in an ignorant state Mitch may have stuck by her if she had only told him about her past I dont mind you being older than I thought But all of the rest of it-- Christ That pitch about your ideals being so old-fashioned and all the malarkey that youve dished out all summer Oh I knew you werent sixteen anymore But I was full enough to believe you were straightMitch page 117 This shows the response that she got to all of her deceit I think she does this because she feels so terrible that she found out about her dead husbands doings and she would never want anybody to feel bad about knowing her mis-doings Maybe one day she will be able to let someone get to know the real Blanche that way they can truly understand her Im afraid however that Blanche believes that a woman cant be accepted without illusion I know I fib a good deal After all a womans charm is fifty percent illusionBlanche 41 Stella also pulls a blanket over
