Review: The Glass Menagerie


The Glass Menagerie
The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I have to admit I love this little play. I especially love teaching it to my AP Literature students. It’s short, but rich in character study and provides some excellent examples of symbolism. Someone from my class has used this play to answer Question 3 of the AP Lit exam every year since I began teaching the class. That’s how loaded with literary merit this piece is.

The Glass Menagerie is the final piece in what is really the backbone of my class, beginning with The Great Gatsby, then The Grapes of Wrath. What we read before and after these three changes, but I can’t imagine ever teaching the course without Gatsby, Grapes, and Glass.

    • You just stalk me everywhere, don’t ya? haha I only posted this because The Song of Ice and Fire is killing my 2013 reading challenge at GoodReads. I needed another book I’ve read this year to catch up. See ya tomorrow! (And I STILL have some White-Out on my arm!)
