Running Head: A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE What is the difference between how Blanche presents herself and what she really is? Why does she choose to present herself so differently? Blanche lives a different life from her reality. She draws a lot of attention with mainly her sincere and mostly fragile personality which can be depicted as well to be illusionistic and thus of her own mind. This implies that she lives a life of illusions so that she can have the ability to protect herself from the threats which are coming from the outside of her own fears. She is additionally full of lies which are depicted by her song of the moon which she uses mostly to manipulate others. Further, with her song, she explains about her life which indubitably full of lies which are used mainly to make Stanley believe her and more so to make him happy. Since she is leaving a double life, she has had her imagination to compose the song so that Stanley can believe her especially her mendacity which coherently makes her happy. Moreover, her delusions are in no doubt helpful to her as it helps her to flashback on her childhood memories where she was usually happy and safe. In this regards, this false life Blanche is living can be found to be because it makes her to cope up with the daily life which is full of stress and that by living this way, she has the ability to reduce her daily fear and stress relating to uncertain future of her surroundings. She is also doing this so that she can be able to live and interact well with the people around her (Williams, Hooper, & Hern, 2012).
