The Glass Menagerie and Expressionist Theater

Collector: Ann V.

Who says a play must be realistic? Certainly not Tennessee Williams, who chose to use expressionistic techniques to tell his tale of Tom, Amanda, and Laura Wingfield. A three-lesson unit module has readers examine how Williams uses these techniques to express his nostalgia and filial piety ideas. After identifying the techniques Williams employs and finding examples from his play, learners use their evidence to craft an essay about expressionism in The Glass Menagerie.
