Hap, Loman is “gonna beat this racket” and come out “number one man” in order to prove that his father “did not vain” Willy excels in his command of tasteless cant popular in the 1930’s. “Well, bottoms up! And keep your pores open!” Willy says, saluting her girl-friend. His sorrowful laments are stock phrases “where are you guys, where are you?” he shouts to his sons; “the woods are burning!” when he gropes for metaphoric expression, he uses stale expressions: “because you got a greatness in you, Biff, remember that….Like young God.

The son claims that his father “could drop it [the bunt] like a seed,” which implies that the father’s sacrifice has been gingerly placed in order to grow strong one day (8). This simile demonstrates the care with which the father tries to teach the son how to bunt. The only other simile compares the son’s sign to his father, the poem itself, to “a hand brushed across the bill of a cap” (21).

And the way the poet 's father was dragging his son along by his wrist, demonstrated Roethke 's helplessness towards his father 's manhandling.

A leading justification of why Linda presumes Biff has the ability to save Willy’s life is due to the two men’s prior relationship. Preceding Boston, Biff idolized his father who in return propped Biff on a pedestal. A direct correlation of Willy’s self-worth is matched with Biff’s success. Near the end of high school Biff began to strive to please his father carrying his father’s pride on his shoulders “This Saturday Pop, this Saturday- just for you, I’m going to break through for a touchdown.” Biff warrants his father’s approval because of the pride his father exudes. The father-son relationship is the bond Linda hopes is strong enough to save Willy.
