Understanding the ‘Terrible Passions’ in A Streetcar Named Desire and Woman’s Struggle for Identity
The project of this study is to investigate how the censorship is arrived at in the film adaption of “A Streetcar Named Desire” and see how feminist criticism is related with the debated discussion of gender representation in cinema. The research scrutinizes woman’s struggle for identity under the social and historical context in the U. S. as the creation of cultural production is merely for entertainment, and the artistic value appears to be undervalued.
