In Willy’s fantasy world, he truly is a great and successful salesman, but this is not the same in reality. In actuality, Willy is unable to sell anything, and this proves how Willy is unable to realize that his delusions are not real. The most conclusive evidence that Willy is not well liked is at his funeral. The only people who show up are his immediate family and neighbors. Not even his boss or any of his co-workers, whom he worked with for decades, put in an appearance.
And just as Charley stated the region is to blame for Willy's disastrous end because he never had a chance to flourish in this capitalistic society. Willy Loman the disastrous hero Miller's Death of a Salesman strongly illustrates self-psychology values governing shame and the potentials of self-restoration. The character seems to be in lineage physical health, but the play demonstrates that he is suffering some incidents of mental incoherence and alteration. Willy has initiated to run his car off the road and often forgets his endpoint. However, Willy's psychological health is not only slanted, but also the play shows the character as having hallmark signs of narcissistic personality illness (Welleck 241).
He chose to follow the American dream and he chose to lead the life it gave him (Death of a Salesman: The Culture Of Willy Loman). Willy dies an unsuccessful person, with the realization that everything he had worked for was not achieved. There are many angles that Willy Loman can be examined from to sort out what type of man he really was. He was a man who lacked vision, drive, and ambition, which lead to his failure. Willy believed that he would one day retire with all the riches that a successful businessman deserved.
Willy entirely disregards Bernard and only cares about Bi... ... middle of paper ... ...grasp the truth of his unaccomplished life and his failure as a father and a husband and a successful man. Willy throughout the course of the play, daydream he is conversing with his successful brother Ben. Willy memories of Ben, are a constant reminder of how he falls short of his American Dream. Consequently the real tragedy wasn’t Willy failing to achieve the American dream, but rather his American Dream ignores the love of his family. It’s quite ironic that Willy literally kills himself for money at the end of the play.
Willy dares to believe that his funeral will be similar to Singleman's. Ironically, when Willy commits suicide, almost no one attends the funeral, proving the error of his philosophies. Throughout his life, Willy believed that if one was attractive and well liked, everything would be perfect. The doors would automatically open for such a man, and he was sure to be successful. In order to believe that he and his family are successes, Willy lies to himself and lives in a world of illusions.
But it is just an illusion he lives in. Even in the final scene of the play which takes place at the cemetery, Willy’s dreams of "being well liked and popular" and of having "real friends" were nothing more than a lie or an illusion. Willy′s sons don′t pay any respect to him and even Linda, his "loving and admiring" wife, feels relieved and free after his death. According to Aristotle, every tragedy must have six parts, which parts determine it’s quality-namely, Plot, Characters, Diction, Thought, Spectacle, and Melody. (Aristotle, Poetics) In a Greek tragedy, an average man like Willy Lo-man would never be considered unless he was a king or God.
As literally as Mr. Miller can say it, dust turns to dust. Suddenly, there is nothing" (Internet 1). The New York Times has expressed the tragedy in the ‘Death of a Salesman’ with no inaccuracy. The phantom of his life has been the American Dream that he has longed for and has not successfully achieved. Willy has terminated his life as an act of cowardice because of the failure of his career, the inaccuracy of raising his two sons, and neglecting Linda, the wife, that has devoted her life and support to her unfaithful husband.
You did? The kids like it? Biff: They nearly died laughing!” (Miller, p.118... ... middle of paper ... ...y’s death is not the end of the American Dream, it is losing Daisy for when she goes, all his dreams die and he is was not able to achieve the green light, a symbol of hope. The challenge to live the American Dream is too much for Willy to handle and he crumbles under the pressure and crashed the car, killing himself. After all, despite coming from two distinct walks of life, both characters Jay Gatsby and Willy Loman felt prey to their own wants to achieve something that had already been lost to the past.
Again to allow the audience to be aware of the characters being in real life or in WillyÂ´s 'daydreamsÂ´. 'Death of a SalesmanÂ´ contains much that is critical of modern American society. But, this was not Arthur MillerÂ´s sole purpose in writing it. WillyÂ´s misjudgement of his failure in life is demonstrated in 'Death of a SalesmanÂ´. He feels as though he has failed because he has no fortune to show for it, in either his or his sonÂ´s names.
Did Willy’s life benefit the world? No. This is shown in the fact that nearly nobody shows up to Willy’s funeral service. Willy now has nothing to build upon, because he is not living anymore; He cannot rebuild his relationship with family or friends, because he is not living anymore; And because he is not living anymore, he cannot figure out why his life resulted this way. Willy was a hero to himself, and a salesman to the world; yet tragic in
