he has arrived at the correct address. By stuttering and seeming so surprised, the reader is able to see Blanche's way of thinking through her words. Rather than having Stella tell the reader about Blanche, Williams lets the character reveal their own nature through their dialogue. Moreover, when Blanche first enters the apartment and is alone she immediately finds the whiskey and takes a drink. This action basically tells the reader that she has some problems and is quick to rely on alcohol to solve them. Although Blanch later says that she isn't a drunkard, her initial action of drinking reveals her true character to the reader. Although in As I Lay Dying characters generally describe what others are like, we learn more about them through their descriptions of others. While in A Streetcar Named Desire, individuals show their own thoughts in the way they handle events and interact with others. When characters voice their opinions of others in As I Lay Dying, they tend to disclose more about themselves. When Cora describes the way the Bundren's treat Addie, she actually exposes her own views that she is better because she has consistently visited Addie. Her descriptions of the others divulge her arrogance and feelings of superiority. Faulkner uses Cora's account of the other characters to show her way of thinking to the reader. In Williams' play, rather than having the characters describe one another, he uses their reactions to access their thoughts. The way Stanley responds to the loss of Belle Reve and then his sudden change in attitude convey his thoughts. Although Stanley doesn't tell how he feels, his reaction clearly demonstrates what he is thinking, and thus, what he values. In both A Streetcar Named Desire, and As I Lay Dying, character's are sometimes misrepresented by others evaluations. While the play and the novel are structured differently, characters are constantly being judged by others in both. Stanley makes numerous evaluations about Blanche. Though many of them are accurate, some are false, which shows, only through character's words and actions can their thoughts adequately be revealed. Cora makes many judgments about the Bundren family. She says that Darl is the only one who loves Addie, saying that he begged not to leave his mother's bedside when it was actually Jewel who didn't want to leave. Furthermore, neither the polyphonic novel nor the play is better or worse at accessing the character's way of thinking. However, Faulkner and Williams use these false evaluations to reveal the character of the people making the judging in their stories. Faulkner and Williams use the words of the characters within their stories to convey their thoughts and personality to the reader. In As I Lay Dying, the thoughts and ideals of each character are used to show their values. Faulkner reveals characters qualities through their beliefs; "When he aims for something to be always a-moving, He makes it long ways, like a road or a horse or a wagon, but when He aims for something to stay put, He makes it up-and-down ways, like a tree or a man" (Faulkner 36). Faulkner uses this quote by Anse to show the reader that Anse is lazy and does not like to be mo>GET ANSWER
