The paper examines Tennessee Williams' style of writing in his play ''The Glass Menagerie" together with his characterization, use of symbolism and theatrical effects. It analyzes the main theme of appearance versus reality and how the play can be considered an autobiography of Williams' life.

From the Paper:

"The second male character in the play is Jim O'Conner, Laura's gentleman caller. Although he only appears in the last scene, his role is pivotel.He is a link between Laura and the outside society .She used to have a crush on him during high-school but she is afraid to see him again due to her extreme shyness, which is shown in scene seven where she is sick and unable to sit with her mother, brother and Jim on the dinner table. Unfortunately, a little bit after Laura becomes comfortable with him, he announces his engagement and her dreams are shattered, leaving Laura more devastated and more alienated from society."
