What is hubris flow in all 3 characetrs: tom, amanda and laura in glass menagerie??

I am a little confused with this one because Hubris means to be over confident and arrogant. The one that I could see that feature in would be the mother of the kids because she sets unrealistic expectations for her daughter. She is foolish that the man that Tom brigs home for dinner will automatically be charmed by her and ready to marry her daughter. She practically forces Laura on him and pretends to be a very cordial southern belle. Laura does not display confidence in the least let alone hubris behavior so I am not sure what you mean except maybe in relation to her confidence in Her glass menagerie. If she is over confident that she can escape into the world, it is really non-existent but just a fantasy.
