As Happy discusses Biff’s notoriety in school, Willy analyzes those two to the Greek divine force of magnificence and want, Adonis. By and by such a correlation means the impression Willy would have needed his children to make on their encompassing in any circumstance as young, compelling, and physically engaging men.

The central theme in the play is about the American dream, and the role of marriage is depicted through the play writer use of his characters. Willy is seen to takes issues with his family members dragging them into his woes for not achieving the ‘American Dream.’ He drags the whole family into the entanglement of his choices, and endeavors to impact their lives to make fulfillment, as he appears surrendered to his destiny. Loman likewise accepts to steer the family as the head. He is not hesitant to rebuke and denounce individuals when gone up against with such a circumstance, regularly demonstrated when he impugns Biff. His outrage blasts, in any case, are appeared to be empty when he communicates with individuals outside the circle of his home, showing further detachment to society.
