Name: Professor: Course: Name: Comparison of Two Texts Tennessee William’s “A Streetcar Named Desire” and Henrik Ibsen's "A Doll's House" reveal gender expectations cultural and society's attitudes of their time. The two authors used their work to expose the hope of each gender in their period. Women possessed little or no rights while men expressed superiority over women. The male fraternity looked for jobs and worked while the females stayed at home to do household chores and took care of the children. In "A Streetcar Named Desire" Stanly represent a heartless violent character while in the “A Doll’s House” Torvald represent fatherly and kind person. Both authors show that the behaviors and arguments of the two males reveal that they act superior to female characters (Novak 1). William illustrates the male’s attitude in that to live (Compare n. p). Further In ‘A streetcar named Desire' Blanche and Stella sustain their siblingship and Stanley and Stella gets married (Sherman 9). The family acted as a place of comfort and love but also as a source of woes and conflicts in both plays. Hence each play depicts culture belief and gender expectations of their setting period.
