The Glass Menagerie accentuates Laura’s difficulty growing up and her failure to fill her mother’s high expectations. Laura’s inability to transition successfully to adulthood by graduating high school, succeeding at job training, or building new social relationships outside her immediate family is due to her mental health issues, including a genetic predisposition to anxiety disorder and Asperger’s, which are exacerbated by her physical disability and the overbearing and inappropriate actions of her mother.

The men that her mother does bring home, abuse Lisa and mistreat her. Lisa is a nine year old girl, she is too young to be experiencing the things she does. There is probably no main income for her family either, and if her mom does get paid, she will probably use that money towards buying more drugs. This can relate to the poverty aspect because people who grow up in poverty cannot even afford to survive on minimum wage alone.

During Julia’s classes at Le Cordon Bleu, she was faced with many challenges where persistence was key. She had no idea how to cook, and she was thrown into a year long class filled with former army soldiers who thought she was not good enough. Upon entering the classroom, “the GI’s made [her] feel as if [she] invaded their boys’ club” (Child, 63).

So, it would have been very easy for her to leave that class and never have to feel that way again.
