The Glass Menagerie Pt 1

Williams, The Glass Menagerie (Scenes 1-5) -- Drama as Literature (EL 250)

Amanda: Tomorrow gives me no time!
Tom: Time for what?
Amanda: Preparations! Why didn'y you phone me at once, as soon as you asked him, the minute that he accepted? Then, don't you see, I could have been getting ready!

The Glass Menagerie was written after WW2. At first when I read this it surprised me that people at that time still cared about their appearance. I then remembered that people did because they want to look their best and everything. Some things in this play seem stereotypical and then some things seem like it would happen at this time.
