The most obvious example of imagery is the glass unicorn in Laura's glass menagerie. The unicorn is unique just as Laura is unique. When the unicorn is broken, it becomes just ordinary as Laura's life will now become ordinary.

Amanda and her "gentleman callers" are also symbolic of an almost dream world she thinks she remembers from her girlish days.
