In the beginning of the play, we instantly see how Amanda cannot stop talking about her younger years. Tom even complains that he doesn’t want to hear stories about her relationships because he has heard them many times. Amanda also later asks Laura, her daughter, when she will be seeing some of the people that notice her. After that, the rest of the book, in Amanda’s side, is all about getting Laura a nice man. Amanda’s fixation with wanting to keep her life going like the past leads to her son leaving.
As children, Adam and Charles play many games, however Charles always has to win. This reaction causes Adam to fear his brother, and leads him to let his brother always win.

Though it’s essentially an offhand comment, Fitzgerald uses this remark to establish Tom’s character. Tom employs his wealth to demonstrate his higher standing on the social ladder.
He was tormented by society because of his actions from his past, towards a child. This, as well as the death of his friend, made Tom suffer severely.

Anna May lost her son, Simon, when he drowned on a fishing trip with her ex-husband, Tony. Every night since, she welcomed dreams that were once nightmares of her son’s death. Her dreams are the crippling hold of the past that refuses to let go, reminding her of her loss every day.
