The Glass Menagerie by Prof. Harold Bloom


The Glass Menagerie by Prof. Harold Bloom

Thomas Lanier Tennessee Williams won the New York Drama Critics Circle Award in 1945 for his memory play, The Glass Menagerie ; it was his first success. His protagonist, Tom Wingfield, recalls events at his troubled home in St. Louis, where his suffocating mother, Amanda Wingfield, badgers him to locate a gentleman caller for his sister, Laura, a shy, lame girl who occupies herself with music and a collection of glass animals. Readers approaching this semi-autobiographical Southern Gothic drama will appreciate the quick-reference study helps offered here, such as the biographical sketch and character list. Advanced students will value the selective critical extracts and annotated bibliography.
