Miller uses Loman’s character to highlight the falsehood of the dream to the audience. New York Times writer Brooke Atkinson suggests that Willy does “not seem to be concerned with the quality of the product he is selling, his core values are based on things that are ephemeral at most.” What emphasises Lomans blind faith is his persevering idealism and naivety throughout the novel, he makes several references to plans for the future, frequently mentioning that “someday I’ll have my own business” and that he will “get a little place out in the country”. His idealism bears resemblance to Steinbeck's own ‘Lennie’ who remains ignorant of his reality and immerses himself in a fantasy in which the audience knows will not change. However, the difference between Lennie and Willy Loman is that Loman purposely chooses to remain in a fantasy, his blind faith in the American Dream is perhaps rooted with significant experiences in his past.
