What is your opinion Tennessee Williams' The Glass Menagerie?
Williams short story titled The Glass Menagerie is a highly autobiographical work which focuses upon a family tragedy and the repressive years of his early adulthood. The Wingfield family possesses both a son named Tom and a daughter named Laura. Tennessee Williams' birth name was Thomas Williams and he had a sister named Rose. The Wingfields surname starts with the letter W like Williams' family name. The Glass Menagerie focuses upon Laura Wingfield and her family's efforts to attach her to a gentleman caller named Jim O'Conner. O'Connor is a man Tom Wingfield knew in high school prior to his days spent toiling in a shoe factory scribbling lines of poetry on shoe boxes. Like Tom Wingfield, Tennessee Williams worked in a shoe factory before he studied play writing in New York and pursued a Hollywood career in script writing. Throughout the brief work of fiction, the reader uncovers Laura's painfully shy nature and how this stems from her insecurities about her bad leg. Similarly, Rose Williams suffered from her own struggles from a mental illness. Laura's bad leg symbolizes Rose's mental illness. Laura fixates on a glass unicorn more than any other part of the menagerie and such an interest symbolizes her uniqueness since unicorns unlike other general animals are mythological creatures. Tennessee Williams and his sister Rose shared a close bond and he viewed her as something special akin to a unicorn. Also, her struggles with mental illness further set her apart from other animals just as the mythological unicorn is unlike other animals. By the end of The Glass Menagerie, the Wingfield family's efforts to make a match for Laura fails and she collapses due to her bad leg at several points in the story. These physical collapses symbolize Rose Williams' struggles with mental illness. Eventually, she received a prefrontal lobotomy which necessitated she spend the rest of her life institutionalized and kept separate from general society as unicorns remain separate from bears, rabbits, and other animals.
