Quote #10

STELLA
Blanche, do you want him?
BLANCHE
I want to rest! I want to breathe quietly again! Yes – I want Mitch… very badly! Just think! If it happens! I can leave here and not be anyone’s problem… (5.85-7)

Look at Blanche’s reasons for wanting to marry – she needs security and safety. This is so different from the passion between Stella and Stanley.
