110 Words1 Page
Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller is a play about an old salesman named Willy Loman who, despite his age, tries to pursue his idea of the American Dream through lying and self-delusion. Bull Meecham, the protagonist of The Great Santini -- a film based on the novel by Pat Conroy -- is a conceited marine pilot who is tough on his family. The protagonists of both the play and the movie share several of the same traits and draw many interesting parallels. One way in which Willy Loman and Bull Meecham are alike are in their relationships with those around them, particularly with their wife, children, and friend.
