He idolized his father and could not believe he would do this to his mother. To spite his father, Biff did not finish school and Willy took this as spitting on him. Through the years the resentment grew to the point they had a non-existent relationship. Willy's relationship with his sons is a contributing point to both the plot and characterization. It seems neither one has lived up to the dreams he has for them.

And Baba’s frustration with his son, and the battle they suffer to try to bond. Their relationship contributes and relates to the prime struggles throughout the novel. A well-known expression that holds true for many father and son relationships is called: “The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree” However, this is not the case for Baba and Amir.

Even though Troy knows that he is the blame of most of the problems that are taking place around him, he fails to admit so. Instead of thinking more positive about things and owning up to his faults, he rather instead blames his family. The relationship between Troy and his oldest son Lyons can be one of the many examples of how his stubborn ways influence his relationship with his family. Troy’s relationship with Lyons can quickly be viewed as a relationship based on guilt. It is obvious that Troy does feel sympathy for him not being there for Lyons when he was younger.
Willy had affected his family with the obsession of the American Dream and this has caused suffering in his family. Each family member responded differently to Willy, however he caused them all suffering. Linda lived in fear of Willy committing suicide, Biff believed he was unsuccessful most of his life, and Happy was always looking for approval which he never received. Willy’s interactions with his family affected how they felt and inadvertently because of him they all suffered. Without Willy’s obsession with the American Dream they all could have lived happier lives and if that doesn’t make one wonder how slightly twisting an ideal can ruin one's life what
The ghosts of his past torment him repeatedly throughout the story, his child's guardians despise him and his old friends do not understand him. Duncan Schaffer and Lorraine Quarrles represent all that wrong with Charlie's life. Charlie attempts to steam forward and like a anchor they keep him moored in place. I can not truly sympathize with Charlie though there is a sense of empathy within me. I sense that with Lincoln Peters also.
This turns sour however, after Biff discovers the father he idolizes was not all he had thought him to be. Afterward, familial dynamics are never the same, as Willy continues to hope that Biff will succeed, ignorant- perhaps purposely so- that his son is failing out of spite, knowing that all his father’s hopes are resting on his shoulders. Willy’s relationships with his two sons are tentative at best, but Happy and Biff are partly to blame for this downhill spiral- as their relationship is just as complex. In the play, “Death of a Salesman,” Willy Loman remembers scenes from years previous, particularly idyllic times when his two sons were still young and full of promise. Willy’s memories focus on Biff: Biff’s chances at success, Biff’s talents, Biff’s popularity.
