The Glass Menagerie Writing Style

Grandiose, pretentious

We thought we would let a quote do the talking here. Here we go:

"Tom appears at the top of the alley. After each solemn boom of the bell in the tower, he shakes a little noisemaker or rattle as if to express the tiny spasm of man in contrast to the sustained power and dignity of the Almighty."

See what we mean about grandiose pretentiousness?
