Zeb 1 Adam Zeb Hajra Naeem English February 8, 2016 “Death of A Salesman” In the play “Death of a Salesman” written by Arthur Miller, the character Willy Loman has flaws in his character that make him responsible for his own misfortune. Willy fails to realize his personal failure and betrayal of his soul and family through the meticulously constructed deception of his life. Willy tries to make himself feel better by lying to himself. Although Willy’s death is unfortunate, if one closely examines his pride, bad temper, and his lies, one can see that these flaws will eventually bring him to his demise. Throughout the play, Willy demonstrates his sense of pride while talking to his family and friends.
This helps us understand why he strived for this feeling. Clearly, he was constantly feeling bad and wanted to feel good for once. He wanted to be accepted and not doubted. He didn’t want to take to heart what his brother said, but he so desperately tried to please him, he chose a path that gave him what he wanted and kept it from his brother. Sonny was described as a smart boy, and that he was.
Over the course of the play, he is presented as a complex person who hides deep insecurity beneath bluster and drive, relying on his handsome and athletic sons to compensate for his own sense of inadequacy. His willful hopefulness and exaggerated expectations betray him in the end by rendering him incapable of accepting himself or his children for who they are (Nadine). In this play, Willy would be a representation of failure to the American dream. Willy believes that personality, not hard work and innovation, is the key to success. Throughout time, Willy wants to make sure his boys are well-liked and popular.
His aspirations for goods make him want stuff that he neither required nor could manage to pay for. Willy believes that he wishes to purchase his wife a new refrigerator even though she is satisfied with what they have. As he strives to live the American dream he honors those who have been victorious at doing so, like his successful brother. Additionally he penalizes those who did not make any efforts towards that ideal or achieve it, like his son Biff, and for the most part prominently himself. The unattainable dream that he has lived all his life was struggling to achieve has brought him to complete disappointment and a loss of wisdom in his judgments.
He deals reality with extreme arrogance . Besides, the interaction between Willy and the main characters Linda, Biff Loman and Happy Loman reveals sides of his personality such as; being obsessive, angry or desperately motivated by the American dream. His aggressive behavior seemed to be a result of the things going around him, starting from his job, a salesman earning a little amount of money and his son 's Biff incapability to settle his life, and as the play evolves, they lead to his suicide. Willy lived in an imaginary world with thoughts and dreams that restricted him and directed his actions such as; the house purchases, Biff 's financial situation, better job opportunities and finally following the American dream that evidently killed him.
Willy never realized this and in turn it caused his mental health to deteriorate even more than it already had. While Linda enabled him, Willy could not help himself too keep ruining the good opportunities he had and turning them into some factious reality. At Willy`s funeral Biff comes to the realization that his father had all the wrong dreams and visions of success. Willy`s only dream was the fake “American Dream” that people believe will happen overnight. Willy`s failed attempts and happiness bonded into one and played a part into him creating this false reality and persona that he was the best salesman and that he was well loved by everyone around him.
Volunteers is a great movie for depicting the situations that may be faced in volunteer work. Tom Hanks was irritating, in a good way, in protraying his role as Lawrence Bourne III. Lawrence is someone you can call a selfish, arrogant, happy-go-lucky guy. He likes to gamble with money that he doesn’t have and depends on his father for support. He seems to be an intelligent man considering that he graduated from Yale University, but his actions as irresponsible.
He almost accepts that he is in the wrong and should be ridiculed. Amir wants to be himself, but society makes him look at himself different than he wants. As a child, all Amir wants is to impress Baba, but can’t, because Baba has certain standards, and longs to prove himself the way he wants, in his stories. His goal will never be reached if he does not conform to standards. On the bright side,
