This conversation appears unimportant to the audience, but it is very important in setting the scene, and setting the party atmosphere. They speak in prose not verse so that people in Shakespeare's time would have known it was not important to the plot. Next, in comes Capulet.

Eddie compliments Catherine on how nice her skirt looks but also complains. Eddie tells Catherine that Beat... ... middle of paper ... ...on or friendly. Eddie's feelings are too strong, his personality is too fixed, the culture he grew up within is too dominant for him to escape and so Eddie is blinded by his insanity and jealousy and gets rid of Marco and Rodolpho although he knows it will mean that he will be hated outcast from his community. In conclusion I think Arthur Miller show the strains on the Carbone household in the scene where the audience first meets Eddie, Catherine and Beatrice by showing the relationship and attitude Eddie shows openly and intentionally towards Beatrice compared with Catherine, the way Beatrice and Catherine responds their feelings towards Eddie and how Eddie's character is displayed as the man of the house and everyone who lives in the Carbone household lives under his rule and that Eddie's tragedy is inevitable.
Hedda’s relationship with each man played a big factor in her life and ultimately her death. Hedda was pushing thirty and unfortunately running out of money so she decided marry Tesman because she knew he was foolish enough to try to make her as happy as possible. Tesman is a momma’s boy and lacks any real creativity but is great at organizing other peoples work. Hedda thought Tesman was boring and uneventful and treated him as if he was her personal waiter. Hedda’s selfish actions completely disregard the feelings of others and this becomes apparent when she burns Lovborgs manuscript Tesman was holding on to.
They all await the arrival of Beatrice's cousins, Marco and Rodolpho who are illegal immigrants from Italy. Marco and Rodolpho arrive and are warmly welcomed into the Carbone household. But soon problems arise as Catherine falls for charming Italian Rodolpho, which Eddie feels very uncomfortable about. An atmosphere is created between Eddie and Rodolpho and their hate for each other grew. Eddie then comes home to find that Rodolpho and Catherine had been making love.
Eddie is the centre around which all the conflict in the play revolves around. He takes care of his wife Beatrice and looks after a girl called Catherine who’s father died when she was younger. Eddie lusts for Catherine but manages to keep his feelings suppressed and turns it into hate towards Beatrice’s cousins Marco and Rodolpho which makes him act irrationally. This ends up making Eddie loose his good name. Eddie felt that Revenging against Marco will regain his pride and good name in the community.
I think that “A view from the bridge” is a tragedy because of eddies extreme downfall, he dies because of one mistake. Throughout the play Eddie is jealous of Catherine because she is not his little girl anymore she is turning into a woman. Eddie is an Italian longshore man working on the New York docks. When eddies wife’s cousins, Marco and Rodolfo seek refuge, as i... ... middle of paper ... ...to prevent. I think Eddie is mainly responsible for his own downfall but Catherine could have played some part in causing it because of her getting together with Rodolfo.
Eddie Carbone is the protagonist of the play who falls in love with his niece Catherine and treats her as his possess. He refuses her work and her relationship with Rodolpho. He accuses Rodolpho of being homosexual and when he fails to prove that he calls the immigration office and informs about Rodolpho and his brother Marco who have entered the country in illegal way. Rodolpho has the chance to be American as he will marry Catherine, while his brother Marco has no chance as he has to return back to Italy and doesn't have any work to support his family. So, he becomes angry with Eddie and accuses him of informing about them.

A view from a bridge is a play set in the early 50’s in New York near the Brooklyn Bridge. It’s a dramatic tragedy and it is here we’re introduced to Eddie Carbone and his niece, Catherine. In the play the audience is able to observe their relationship and watch it change. Towards the start we perceive a normal fatherly-daughterly relationship, where occasionally we may think Eddie is slightly over protective but at this point there is nothing abnormal about it. But as the play progresses we begin to see a different side to Eddie and also a different perspective of his obsessive feelings for Catherine.
