All stories have a protagonist in which that character is the main character of the plot Sometimes there is more than one protagonist This is the case for The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams in which the plot revolves around the Wingfield family The Wingfield family consists of Tom a thirty-something warehouse employee Amanda a loving mother who is a little too overprotective of her children and Laura Toms older sister who is incredibly shy Although there are three protagonists to this play Tom is a more predominant character than the other two This play is mainly about Tom and how he deals with the difficulties in her life After his father ran away and abandoned his family Tom assumed the role as the man of the house Because of this he feels obligated to stay at home and look over his mother and sister Not only is Tom a character in this play but he also serves as the narrator further putting him into the spotlight Because all of what happens in the play is through Toms memory the audiencereader is exposed to the play through Toms eyes and memories Moreover because all the audience knows is what Tom tells them the play is completely told through Toms bias Although Tom loves his mother and sister very much he wants to break out of the systematic life that he leads He aspires to become a poet and years for adventure I think the main story in this play is Toms dilemma between leaving his family and going off to chase his own dreams or staying at home and taking care of his mother and sister Unlike the other storylines in the play Toms is one that runs throughout the play from the beginning to the end Laura and Amandas storylines are ones that pose their problem and resolves it without any interruptions Because Toms storyline is one that is given the most
