As she walks across the floor, her heels clicking on the wood panels, she tucks a stray lock of hair behind her ear.

  • The Glass Menagerie Vs The Death Of A Salesman - 557 words
    The Glass Menagerie vs. The Death of a Salesman In both The Glass Menagerie and The Death of a Salesman there are startling similarities and differences. After reading and analyzing both plays, these aspects become evident. We see these differences in their styles, acts, scenes, characters, endings and uses of symbolism. The two authors are very similar. I believe that the two combined many autobiographical tidbits hidden within the plays. For example, I do not believe that is was by mere coincidence that the main character of The Glass Menagerie, Thomas Wingfield, had the same initials of its playwright, Thomas Tennessee Williams. Another autobiographical aspect is that of using the idea of ...
