The Glass Menagerie


1.     Critics are divided over William’s motivation in this play. Is he trying to get rid of Laura’s memory(bases on his sister Rose, who went mad and whom he deserted), or is he replaying the traumatic leaving? Which makes the most sense to you? How do you read the last line, “Blow out your candles, Laura---and so good-bye…”?
