Premiering in 1944 and winner of the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award, ""The Glass Menagerie"" was Tennessee Williams' first popular success. The play introduced Williams' notion of plastic, or sculptural, drama as he incorporated both sound and lighting into his stage directions in an attempt to heighten the audience's emotional experience. This updated ""Bloom's Modern Critical Interpretations Guide"" is an essential resource for those seeking to deepen their appreciation of this riveting character study.
