A brother, a son, a friend, Tom Wingfield the narrator and a character in the play, The Glass Menagerie, which is based on TomÃÂs memory of his many experiences living with his mum and sister during the Great Depression.
As this is a recollection, the play has a hard time presenting the events objectively as the mind, most often times distort the facts of events.
The menagerie is beautiful on the outside but easily broken much like the family. However, when one examines the story through a lens focused on characterization and how each character is depicted a conclusion may be drawn that the title serves as a hint for audiences to pay closer attention to Laura as she is the one most closely connected to the menagerie.
Laura is presented as an extremely shy and sensitive person.
As the play progresses we see the relationship and conversations between Tom and his mother Amanda.
In this we see Amanda’s character (not the actor) as overbearing, fantastical and controlling.
