The Glass Menagerie

The Glass Menagerie” is an autobiographical play by Tennessee Williams. “The Glass Menagerie” is kind of autobiographical play by Tennessee Williams.Where for its prototype is taken his own family: a strict father, an emotional mother, and a daughter suffering from mental illness. The play is penetrating and it depicts a pernicious memory of memories, aggravated by depression from obsessive reality. Minor notes, like Chekhov’s, desperate positions and piercing pity of endings.The theater always shows more, and what to understand, it is necessary to look deeper. After all, in the conditions of a scene it is impossible to show the reality, we can only reflect it approximately, primitively designating: the lame main character – any of our complexes, its glass menagerie – the fragile inner world of a person who is not self-confident, including, to some extent, almost everybody.
