Willy Loman

Death of a Salesman

"WILLY: Biff Loman is lost. In the greatest country in the world a young man with such—personal attractiveness, gets lost. And such a hard worker. There’s one thing about Biff— he’s not lazy."This quote demonstrates Willy's belief of the American Dream. If you are well-liked, then you will make it big and definitely succeed, if not then tough luck.

Willy Loman was a 63 year old salesman who was self-deluded and insecure, that he died believing he was a hero to his family. Willy constantly fails to accept help or the fact that he fails to realize his own failures.

Description

Willy Loman

"WILLY [small and alone]: What-what’s the secret? BERNARD: What secret?WILLY: How- how did you? Why didn’t he ever catch on?"This quote shows Willy completely desperate asking a young men for not only help on why his son did not succeed like him, but help on how to achieve his dreams for himself.

"CHARLEY: You want a job?WILLY: I got a job, I told you that. [After a slight pause] What the hell are you offering me a job for?CHARLEY: Don’t get insulted.WILLY: Don’t insult me. "Even though Willy is struggling and is in need of a job, he's too stubborn and proud to take the help he is being given.

The dead plant represents Willy. He is already dead to me yet he keeps giving himself all this false hope and lies to keep pn going, and that's his water. All of this is only makes it harder, that's why in the end his only solution to save his family is to "accidently" kill himself to give his insurance money to his family.
