Over the course of the last month I have read the classic plays of Tennessee Williams Williams first successful play, The Glass Menagerie initially opened in Chicago in the spring of 1944 and then moved to New York three months later What he dubs a memory play, The Glass Menagerie focuses on a family much like Williams own family, and hones in on the human emotions that allow a family to function Containing seven scenes all in one location and four characters, The Glass Menagerie is powerful pie [...]
Reread for class 2017Still a great play I originally read this 5 or 6 years ago for my high school English class and it is so interesting now getting a new perspective in a university class.
The Glass Menagerie is a great domestic tragedy with three very distinctive characters the strong, proud Amanda, the weak and innocent Laura, and the realistic dreamer, Tom One finds in this play an elegiac portrait of misery, rather than a scalding enactment of taboo There is no one tragic event here, but a general condition of pathos Instead of a classic conflict, The Glass Managerie depicts a lack of cooperation We find in the Wingfield home no crime, but a chronic, aching social and economic [...]

I am completely blown away The Glass Menagerie is a perfect mirror of the dysfunctional American family An overbearing, yet well intentioned mother abandoned by her lover A son filled with Hollywood style dreams of adventure but living a life of monotonous toil A defective daughter who has little interest in anything, besides the glass animals she collects week and frail as herself.The way Tennessee Williams pits all of these characters against each other, and how all of their desires come toget [...]
The Glass Menagerie is a weird one for me There s a better word for it than weird I m a crap writer though I ll leave it at that There s no thesaurus mindreader thing for what I m feeling.There are stories that we know every word of before we ve ever read, seen or heard them The Glass Menagerie is one of those for me We d act out scenes and make references like we actually knew what we were talking about My mom especially loved the rise and shine routine Remember that scene in Joe Versus the Vol [...]
The scene is memory and is therefore nonrealistic Memory takes a lot of poetic license It omits some details others are exaggerated, according to the emotional value of the articles it touches, for memory is seated predominantly in the heart I really enjoyed this play, a lot than I thought I would It s a very short play but it managed to elicit all sorts of feelings from me,especially pity, mainly because the characters all carried some sort of burden or regret There s the pushy, abandoned by h [...]
Early this month, my 15 y o daughter, Jillian who is studying in an all girls school, asked me to write a monologue for the 7 y o Noli Me Tangere character, Crispin Each of them in the class was given a character in the novel with the objective of introducing all the characters to the class I used to write drama scripts in high school Alamat ni Mariang Makiling and college The Silent Mourner but those were a 2 3 decades ago So, to help out, I read that chapter in Noli and wrote one Jillian deliv [...]
A modern play, to me, about disillusionment Main characters include Amanda delusional, childish, dependent, desparate mother , Laura inhibited, painfully shy daughter , Tom restless, dreamer, poet, narrator son , Jim optimistic, hopeful, gentleman caller A play about misdirected dreams and ambitions Amanda places her dreams in her children Tom places his dreams in adventure and traveling the world like his absentee father Laura places her dreams of happiness in her glass menagerie collection But [...]

A lot of the literature I ve read for school this year has disappointed me It s great that we got to read and watch The Glass Menagerie as part of my AP Lit class, because I reclaimed my title as extremely obsessive fanboy extraordinaire.There s just so much to love in this play Williams writing is exquisite and his utilization of symbols leaves myriad room for analysis His deep and damaged characters call for discussion Amanda Wingfield, the ambitious and heady mother of Laura and Tom, Laura, t [...]
Read this for class and I really liked it So much symbolism
What is it with the Scottish school syllabus, that it s so obsessed with early twentieth century American playwrights This is the second Tennessee Williams I ve had to teach this year and not so much as a Shakespeare to be seen The Scots playwrights don t fare any better there s a ton of Scottish poetry on the syllabus, but even for Liz Lochhead the poetry s all we get.Anyway, my copy of The Glass Menagerie has a favourable quote from Arthur Miller on the back, which I think falls under the gene [...]
I really enjoyed reading this one Im a fan of details and this one had a ton of them, it mentioned the american hostorical background without really mentioning it But one could see how it is years after civil war and southerns have lost their slaved and their aristocracy Society is getting industrialized , the way of life has been changed and the binary btw city urban life is shown by the Toms wish to become a sailor Everyone should become something, do sth, leisure is no praised, art is no lon [...]
4 stars but somethings are unrateable Tennessee Williams to me is special I find his work deeply moving And while reading a play is moving, seeing it is an entirely different experience I remember seeing both this play and the movie, and it is unforgettable I also have the experience, after taking a Tennessee Williams class in college, or maybe it wasn t a class, maybe just somehow it was incorporated in American Dramatic Theater I remember feeling the compelling need to read or see every single [...]

Tennessee Williams proclaims THE GLASS MENAGERIE the saddest play I have ever written It is full of pain It s painful for me to see it The dysfunctional family portrayed in this drama brought back memories of Williams own unhappy life while living in St Louis It is a story about a mother deserted by her husband long ago, still living in the youth of her past, who is constantly worried about her grown son s nightlife and job stability as well as her terribly shy and slightly crippled daughter s m [...]
Blow out your candles, Laura An American theatre classic Even on the printed page it s a killer.
One of my favorite plays I remember talking about it with a friend in high school, where we realized that from his perspective the play was about Tom, and from my perspective the play was about Laura I guess it just depends who you are and where you are at in life I m surprised I ve never marked this as read before, and now I ll go off on a play spree Being different is nothing to be ashamed of Because other people are not such wonderful people They re one hundred times one thousand You re one t [...]
A domineering mother directs the destinies of the son and daughter, thereby stifling their individualities and aspirations The theme isn t fresh but Tennessee Williams, with masterful strokes of his pen, draws forth the drama that tucks the hearts of audience We feel the tension, the frustration, the struggle, and ultimately the resignation We sympathize with the children for having to sacrifice their dreams but we also pity the mother for trying to fill the role of the father and to revive a pa [...]
