Family Roles By: Trevor and Aaron December 7th, 2010 "Families cast their members in roles they never forget. Although we may be seperated literally or figuratively from our families or origin, these major roles are indelibly engraved on our memories." Willy, Happy, Biff, and each Linda develop certain characteristics which contributes to portraying their family roles. Willy Loman The Failure of a Father Happy Loman The Incarnation of Willy Biff Loman The True American Dream Linda Loman Nurturing Mother Will you let me go, for Christ’s sake? Will you take that phony dream and burn it before something happens? —Biff (Act 2)

I don’t say he’s a great man. Willy Loman never made a lot of money. His name was never in the paper… But he’s a human being, and a terrible thing is happening to him. So attention must be paid. He’s not to be allowed to fall into his grave like an old dog. Attention, attention must be finally paid to such a person. —Linda (Act 1)
And they know me, boys, they know me up and down New England. The finest people. And when I bring you fellas up, there’ll be open sesame for all of us, ‘cause one thing, boys: I have friends. —Willy (Act 1)
Happy defends Willy's aspirations, saying, "I'm gonna show you and everybody else that Willy Loman did not die in vain. He had a good dream. It's the only dream you can have-to come out number-one man. He fought it out here, and this is where I'm gonna win it for him." In this way, Happy picks up the torch that his father has left at the grave. "He left out details, in hope that we would see his people as giant myths: but luckily for him, we didnt need details. The basic Miller family had an unmistakeable flavour." (Wilfred Sheed) Willy- "Willy Loman's quest for success in American terms and the detail of his failure were honestly enough wrought so that the work's excess could be forgiven." (Jack Richardson) Linda- "Linda's quest to create a successful life for her family is only flawed by her everlasting love for Willy."

By:Trevor &
Aaron Thanks for Listening thanks for listening! "Happy follows in Willy's fottsteps and tries to achieve the American Dream, the only major flaw was that Happy lived for the money"
Andrew Rutledge "Biff was able to experience the riches that Willy and Happy were unable to know, based on his finding of what he loved to do"
