How different can two people who are sisters really be Very different is the answer anyone would find when examining the differences between the main characters of the play A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams The plays main female characters are Stella and Blanche Dubois These sisters are very different in many ways from their personality and attitude to their thoughts concerning the treatment of women Even though they grew up together and were raised by the same people Their relationship is a prime example of just how different two people can be The beginning of these sisters differences seems to stem from their different personalities Stella is a very easygoing person for the most part and she hardly ever gets upset over anything She never tries to argue with Stanley her husband for any of the crude and annoying things he does Stella also exhibits a great amount of contentment with what she has and where she is in life When her sister comes and finds out that she lives in squalor and her husband is nothing more than a drunkard Stella appears not to mind her sisters complaints at all Blanche on the other hand is a very uptight person indeed She seems to try and set herself apart from the rest of the characters and she always tries to make herself appear younger and more proper than she truly is Blanche was also raised to be a southern bell she has always acted properly but she has never truly been proper These sisters personalities are very conflicting even though they were raised in the same environment The next spike that drives the two farther apart is their conflicting attitudes Stellas attitude is one of a very weak and frail individual to afraid to speak out on her own She shows these traits plainly every time she gives in to Stanley or allows him to hit her or break things
