Essay Topic 1
Write an essay on the character of James Lingk. He does not speak much, but when he does his words express a deep-seeded fear of life and desire to be loved. Why does he buy into Roma's pitch so readily, and why does he remain as loyal to the man as to his own wife? Does the author imply a deeper emotional bond from Lingk's point of view? What does Lingk ultimately represent in the frame of the play?
Essay Topic 2
The framing device of the first act only gives us brief glimpses of the characters, and it never puts all of them in the same room. Moreover, it gives us information about the contest in small portions. How does this affect the way the view experiences the play? What speculations does it create? How is the audience prepared for the second act?
Essay Topic 3
The past is an amorphous entity in Glengarry Glen Ross. The older men are nostalgic for it, and the younger men dismissive. Write an essay about the past in this play. What does it mean to men like Levene and Moss? Have they embellished it to make themselves feel better about the present? What about someone like Williamson? How does he regard the salesmen that come before him?
