Through The Looking Glass: The role of memory in the Glass Menagerie
Thesis: “..Tom would have become a protagonist whose remembrance of familial things past was truly subjective, distorted, dreamlike or even nightmarish, and totally self-generated, a fantastic journey through the minds inner reaches as well as the world’s outer ones.”
