Blanche carries loneliness in her life and it was to find love. Blanches’ character played her out to be a very freaky person who tries to seduce me to get what she wants from men. She is portrayed as a prostitute and a liar. Blanche lies starts to be revealed when Stanley tells Stella lie number one on (page 2227) “She moved out to the flamingo! A second-class hotel, which has the advantage of not interfering in the private social life of the personalities there! The flamingo is used to all kinds of goings-on.
