Her delicate beauty must avoid strong light! In praise of Blanche DuBois

"Her delicate beauty must avoid strong light. There is something about her uncertain manner, as well as her white clothes, that suggests a moth."

Such a beautiful description of Blanche DuBois at the beginning of A Streetcar Named Desire. And when she remarks - “I can't stand a naked light bulb, any more than I can a rude remark or a vulgar action.”

Ah, Blanche!
