Laura and The Glass Menagerie

4 April 2015
The purpose of this paper is to introduce and discuss the character of Laura in “The Glass Menagerie,” by Tennessee Williams.

This paper analyzes the lead character, Laura. It draws metaphoric comparisons between Laura and her collection of glass animals. Laura is portrayed as a relatively silent character, with the least lines in the play, however she is the only family member who is capable of keeping the family together.
“The menagerie and Laura are symbolic of each other. Laura loves the delicate glass ornaments, and they are fragile, just like she is. The unicorn loses its horn, and is now less than perfect, just like Laura and her handicap. She is also just as odd as a unicorn, which is a mythical creature, and Laura is just as unusual and odd.”
