The Glass Menagerie - Tennessee Williams - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the play The Glass Menagerie:

Single parenting of a sickly girl in St. Louis.

My favorite Tennessee Williams quote from the play:

"Memory takes a lot of poetic license."

Questions to ponder while reading The Glass Menagerie:

Can you dream too much?

How do you recover from disillusionment?

My thoughts about The Glass Menagerie:

Sometimes you have to move on.

Sometimes you have to go to work.

Sometimes life sucks.
