I’m looking for my sister, Stella DuBois. I mean—Mrs. Stanley Kowalski.
They told me to take a street-car named Desire, and then transfer to one called Cemeteries and ride six blocks and get off at—Elysian Fields.
She showed me a picture of your home-place, the plantation. A great big place with white columns.
But you are the one that abandoned Belle Reve, not I! I stayed and fought for it, bled for it, almost died for it!
Why the Grim Reaper had put up his tent on our doorstep! . . . Stella. Belle Reve was his headquarters! Honey—that’s how it slipped through my fingers!
