Explanation of Character Reports and how to determine your character and topic assignments for each play. For your assigned character and topic from The Glass Menagerie, complete the following in 200 words:
Explain how the assigned topic affects or influences the character assigned. Begin by identifying how the topic is impacted by the character’s flaws, his or her actions or attitudes, the conflicts which arise, any suffering or punishments experiences, and the degree of justice served (if any). Use the Sample Character Analysis on page 10 of the syllabus. Try to uncover the playwright’s message by considering what he wants readers to think about the topic, how the topic is delivered through the character, and what specific quotes, passages, events, or character relationships help to decipher the playwright’s message.
