God created the first man, Adam, out of the dust of the ground. He breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, but for Adam there was no helpmate found. So God put Adam into a deep sleep and made a woman out of a rib of the man.
Tennessee Williams (1911 - 1983) "I have found it easier to identify with the characters who verge upon hysteria, who were frightened of life, who were desperate to reach out to another person. But these seemingly fragile people are the strong people really." Unfortunately, Blanche lacked the strength to survive; just like Tom's younger sister, Rose.
