In life music can be used to relate to peoples feelings. From the style of music to the rhythm and many other elements music can be used to help show things that should be related and certain feeling of happiness, sadness, hopelessness, and many others. In the play A Streetcar Named Desire music and sounds helps relate parts of Blanches life to help portray the feelings she has had in her life. The sounds of the trains, varsouviana music, and the blue piano may seem irrelevant at one moment but as multiple scenes include these sounds can reveal a hidden meaning and help provide foreshadowing in the continuation of reading the play. The sounds do not only show that life is not always what you hope it will be but, also shows how sometimes people who may need help in life can go throughout life with these pleads of help being unanswered. Causing a ‘snow ball’ effect that can lead to a break down. In the play A Streetcar Named Desire music and sounds used in the play help show Blanche’s feelings and her continued pleas of help that go unanswered.

Just like in life there comes a moment when Blanche must admit what happened because of what she says, “boy I had married broke away from me… A few moments later- a shot”(96). This truth though may not want to be what she wants to believe did happen and so she must admit what she has done. Just as in life things might happen that people do not want to think about and do not want to admit but must because with time the guilt can be as big as a train and be blaring to come out.
