Life is a lonely tale of furor, as Tennessee Williams provides though his play, " The Glass Menagerie. " Williams encompases Laura in isolation via a world by which they wish to are part of by using numerous symbols.

Similar to glass Laura is quite fragile, her soul and image encounters the possibility of being easily broken and damaged. Her figure is disastrously transparent as it is simple to decipher.

Yet, in a diverse light, glass reflects a rainbow of personality and beauty. Exactly like the rainbow radiated by glass Laura assists characters in achieving a feeling of beautiful and colorful self-awareness.
