Because David chose to go back to Melbourne instead of stay on the diggings he we are lucky enough to experience what news they had and how important news was to them back in those days. Due to having a pay so little and having to leave and try his luck on the diggings, David would have never come to be an editor in Ballart and help construct Australia’s news system. Luckily David was on the miner’s side and he used many quotes like this to represent the miners voice, ‘man for man, the miners were physically mentally and morally equal to any people in the British dominions’. Because Syme had no luck on the diggings but still had to pay for his monthly licence Syme understood what the miners were complaining about and stood up for them, consequently many people who weren’t digging started to take the miners side and that is how David helped construct beliefs and

It is a fiction novel about a thirty year old man who has been battling to overcome an intellectual deficit all of his life and has an opportunity to become more intelligent than he ever had imagined through an experimental operation. He takes the opportunity and in a few weeks he becomes a genius for a short time before his itelligence receded as fast as it increased.

Growing up, money wasn’t something that came easy for the Miller family. In 1929, they were affected by the Wall Street Crash and were forced to move to Brooklyn (Biography). He didn’t let this personal and financial hardship affect him, though. “The Depression (the most formative crisis in Miller’s life) was in many ways a positive force…” (Carson). “Miller’s refusal to believe that man is helpless” influenced him to find work for small jobs, and even manage to save up enough money for him to attend the University of Michigan where he was able to complete his very first original play, No Villain (Carson).
But he desperately holds onto the ideals thrust upon him by the American Dream instead of recognizing the inherent fantasy in them. In a central moment to the play, as Howard informs Willy that the firm is firing him, Willy utters: "I put thirty-four years into this firm, Howard, and now I can 't pay my insurance!

But as mentioned in his confession, the height of his career occurred two decades before he faces Howard, and yet he does not acknowledge that he has been sliding downhill in sales since.

We wanted nothing more than to finally reach our hotel and go to sleep, having suffered the longest and most treacherous journeys that most of us had ever experienced. Finally, at 11:30 at night we arrived at our hotel.
