Book #14: The Glass Menagerie, by Tennessee Williams

Book #14: The Glass Menagerie, by Tennessee Williams

The Glass Menagerie is obviously a well-known American classic, so I’m not sure there’s anything special I can say about it that hasn’t already been said. It’s a lovely, tragic story about the broken Wingfield family set in St. Louis in the 1930s. This is really just one of the plays everyone needs to read. It moves quickly and easily, and it has such an important role in pop culture (like many of Tennessee Williams’s works) that you kind of just have to read it.

I’m very happy to be starting our section on Williams in my American Drama class. I’ll be reading four more of his works before moving onto another playwright, so here’s hoping that I enjoy them!
