The quote by Duff Brenna All literature shows us the power of emotion it is emotion not reason that motivates characters in literature To me means that it is emotion that affects characters in literature not reason or thought I Agree with this statement because many stories characters do what they feel is right not what is logically right In all literature it is a characters feelings which lead to their actions and not any logic or reasoning The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams proves this quote In The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams the characters act upon this feelings not reason or thought Tom Wingfield acts upon his emotions of frustration with family issues and a dull future by escaping them by leaving his mother and younger sister on their own If Tom would have reasoned about it he would realize that leaving his mother and sister is going to put them through great trouble and lack of money since he is the main source of income If Laura Wingfield the youngest person in the house would reason she would realize that a simple incident isnt a good reason for dropping out of an expansive collage and ruining away from any further career plans that can make a dramatic improvement in the life style of her and her family but she didnt think she just runs away from the problem because of her intense shyness If Amanda Wingfield wouldnt have let her emotions take over she would realize that she is pushing Tom her son to the edge with her constant instructions and telling a grown man how to live Therefore I agree with the quote by Duff Brenna All literature shows us the power of emotion it is emotion not reason that motivates characters in literature The Glass Menagerie proves this quote to be correct Characters in literature follow their emotional needs logical reasonable actions are most likely not to occur
