Scene 11 What way has Stella embraced the same type of escape from reality that Blanche chose?
Answers 1Add Yours
She is torn between her husband and her sister, and she is very aware of the decision she has to make. If she believes that Stanley raped Blanche, then she would have to leave Stanley. If she believes that Blanche is crazy, then she has to send Blanche away. Stella seems to know, deep down, that Blanche was telling the truth. But it is finally Stella who is forced to choose magic over realism; she chooses to escape reality and just pretend that Stanley did not rape Blanche.
