Overall, this essay is going to be directed towards informing the readers about all the different foreshadowing events that occur during the play. For example, there are subtle hints in every known conflict and plot twist. Some are very clear, while others take a few times of reading to realize. To make things easier, chronological order would be most helpful.
I agreed with the idea of adding in the stealing food part because I don’t think that the play has to be the exact same as the book. Books are hardly ever the same as the movies nowadays.

Which leads me into my next statement. I apologize for going slightly over that 3-page mark, but I cut as much as I could.
The plot of a literary work is defined as the main events (storyline) of, in this case, a play, or novel, movie, etc., devised and presented by the writer as an interrelated sequence. The plot generally consists of an exposition, a main conflict, rising action, climactic event, falling action, and a resolution.

Using the opening stage directions of SCENE THREE as your starting point, explore the variety of Williams’ dramatic uses of colour and symbolism in the play as a whole.
One last point that I believe will tie everything together by the end is that of romanticism in relation to nationalism. Although these themes sound similar they each have their own distinct differences, and I believe intertwined is what made this play great and gave the audience something to gravitate to because it was relatable in their own lives, and soon enough it will be explained just how.
