A streetcar named desire

Is there any examples of Anagnorisis in either A streetcar named desire or Wuthering heights?

In a Streetcar named desire Anagnorisis is shown later in the play where Stanley finds out the truth about Blanches past and reveals it to Stella. It's here we learn about her true nature, with Anagnorisis further being shown when Mitch confronts Blanche about what Stanley told him about her, with Blanche confirming her terrible actions in the past.
Haven't done Withering heights so can't say anything about ot. Hope this helps.

With Streetcar you could use Stanley/Mitch/Stella learning about Blanche's past. Or even after this, when Stanley sort of forces Blanche to see the reality of her situation (when she is in her tiara and he is cruel to her in scene 10). Maybe even the final scene?
