How Arthur Miller Presents Eddie in A View From A Bridge Eddie Carbone is the main character in the play “A View From A Bridge” and I the character that I will talk about in the rest of this essay. The role of Eddie is very complicated, it is of an Italian American longshoreman who is ageing, with a loving wife and a beautiful niece, Catherine; but in his eyes that niece began to seem a little too beautiful. Fear begins to creep up on Eddie as he sees Catherine growing further and further away from him. This sense of loss triggers a large amount of lust in Eddie that caused him to react in the way he did. Relations between everyone and Eddie worsened when his wife’s (Beatrice) cousins, Marco and Rodolfo illegally entered US borders and hid in Eddies house.
Othello is a highly respected general and is also married to the pure Desdemona. The marriage between Othello and Desdemona is destroyed due to Iago’s actions and lies. His actions consist of getting Michael Cassio discharged as lieutenant and convincing the Moor that his wife is cheating on him. The motives Iago has for despising Othello are he passed him over for a promotion to be his lieutenant, instead he chose Michael Cassio, and then he has suspicion that Othello slept with his wife, Emilia. Iago is miserable with his life, so he is going to make everyone else around him feel his misery.
Mustafa: Iago vs Othello “I hate the Moor: And it is thought abroad, that 'twixt my sheets! He has done my office: I know not if't be true; But I, for mere suspicion in that kind, Will do as if for surety.” Iago is crushed when he is told about a rumour how Othello is having an affair with his wife Emilia. Iago already was angry with Othello because he gave his promotion away to someone less qualified than him. This will give him a greater reason to ruin his life. It is so because of the motivation and drive he has received from this situation which will lead to better ideas.
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.

When Jim says; “it takes a certain talent… for lying” which suggests to the audience that Mother is corrupt, which also implies Miller believes America to be corrupt. In conclusion Arthur Miller makes the disintegration of the Keller family very dramatic and compelling for the audience, through the portrayed feelings of sorrow for Keller because he was trying to do what was best for his family. However, by the end of the play his family who he sought to protect eventually turned against him, driving him to suicide. Miller makes us feel least sorrowful for Mother because we blame her as she was very manipulative and emotionless when Keller committed suicide.
