She frets again about walking in front of the poker players, but Stella accompanies her.

As the nurse speaks to Blanche, her voice echoes eerily. Stanley says the only thing Blanche could have possibly forgotten is her paper lantern, which he tears from the lightbulb and hands to her. The nurse holds Blanche, who struggles in her grasp.

The plays of William Shakespeare were one of the major literary influences on the composers of the Romantic era, from Mendelssohn at its beginning, to Tchaikovsky at its end.
