This quote shows, how Tom is trying to changed Ben’s perspective of work in Ben’s mind, implanting the idea that whitewashing could actually be something fun.

In the beginning of the play wee see Willy’s sons, Biff and Happy, on the same path as their father. Towards the end of the play however, we can grasp the fact that Biff is not on the same road as Happy and Willy. Through many events in the play Biff realized that not only did Willy have his dream backwards but he too was trying to pursue something he didn 't appreciate. The play, Death of a Salesman, is directly related to the quote “You stuff someone into the American Dream, and it becomes a prison” said by Craig L. Thomas. Willy Loman is the best example for someone being stuck in the so called American dream prison.

Just a quick recap of Sansón’s tomfoolery, starting with my first impression of him. Upon the initial introduction of Sansón Carrasco I got the feeling that I wouldn’t care for him as a character.

Artan (2014) studies death of a salesman under the domain of American dream and the theme of narcissism because he believes that there is a connection between these two in character of Willy Loman. The purpose of his study is “to demonstrate that a close reading of the protagonist, Willy Loman suggests that his notion of success in relation to the American dream can be regarded as narcissistic” (Artan, 2014, p.2). According to Artan, American dream is the main theme of this play and Miller shows it through the characters’ wishes. He believes that Willy Loman is an unsuccessful salesman since he has misunderstood the notion of American dream and the fact that Willy sees success in working hard, the way of speaking, appearance and attractiveness that makes him a narcissist who wants to be superior and be liked by

Usually, repressed connotes a negative restraint, yet Coates seems to speak of his transformation positively. I think this must contribute to his sense of falsehood, as he feels though the only way to survive is to hide who he really is. So that’s where Coates is right now, feeling the front of imposter syndrome, and it comes at a strange time in the book. It appears halfway through, and book feels about as aimless, there is no driving force behind the plot. It is as if the both the book and Coates are at their crossroads, and we are about to see what happens when they make the jump.
Your perspective is reality, true or not it is. However, when something happens and you your perspective is lost is it true that you lose your sense of reality? Or perhaps you don 't lose reality but rather gain perspective, which can be confusing in a whole other light. Author Tim O’Brien, through his narrative, The Things They Carried, emphasises the idea the perhaps there is no way to lose perspective; instead you are constantly gaining it causes more confusion while you 're still writing your story. But perhaps when you take a step back after you’ve made it through the mess the pieces (the memorable moments good and bad) seem to fall into place creating a glance “across the surface of my [your] history” (233).
