Tennessee Williams, The Glass Menagerie (200-word Drama Character Report)

Tennessee Williams, The Glass Menagerie (200-word Drama Character Report)

Students must write a (minimum) 200-word analysis of the character JIM for the themes of family, love and expectations. Consider connections to Amanda, Laura and Tom. The analysis should consider that each individual in the play has at least one flaw in his or her character (i.e. pride, naivete, selfishness, deception, immorality, etc.). Focus your analysis on what your character’s major flaw(s) would be. Evaluate how the flaws affect his or her choices and actions. Consider if he ultimately recognizes where he went wrong. Does the play suggest that the character has taken ownership of the consequences of his actions? Your analysis should conclude by proposing what you believe the playwright wants readers/viewers to think about your character (meaning the lasting impression we are supposed to have). Include as well how themes of the play are delivered through your character. Most importantly, make reference to the specific quotes, passages, events, or relationships involving your character that help you decipher the playwright’s message. the website for the play: http://www.pval.org/cms/lib/NY19000481/Centricity/Domain/105/the_glass_menagerie_messy_full_text.pdf
