Possible CST topic

For my CST Report I was thinking about doing something on Jim's treatment of Laura in "The Glass Menagerie" and how it may seem that he is trying to flirt with her, but really he's just being friendly because he has no clue about the intentions of setting up the visit.


I might talk about Tom's unique role as narrator. When I read the play it was surprising to me that Tom leaves at the end. I just never think of the narrator of a story to be anything but a good, trustworthy character in a play. Especially since the play was a "memory." Why would a person want to tell a story about how they abandoned their family at the end? Or maybe he did so out of guilt? These are ideas I might want to explore.

Which do you all think is a better topic? I am still working on possible theses, but I wanted to see what you all thought about my topics before I finalized anything. Feedback and questions just usually help me develop my ideas better. Thanks guys!

Hey Lorin, they both sound great but what principle (or principles)of CST would you be using? I'm just wondering. I'm going to post what I'm thinking of doing after I comment on Andy's so please post on mine!!
