Initially, she tells Blanche that she left Belle Reve to do her ain life. DRAMATIC IRONY – what we know is that Stella left Belle Reve, because it showed no hereafter for her, matter-of-fact like Stanley. So in this respect, she is more matter-of-fact than Stella, who merely wants to hang on. attempts to be practical and rational.
Initially did n’t desire to hear about Blanche lying to her about, naif. Turning a blind oculus to the state of affairs, seeing black and white and this is something that as the audience, we know Blanche does.
