Death of a Salesman - Tragic Hero
Willy Loman Tragic Hero Death of a Salesman
Willy refuses to accept that success is built by hard work and determination
Willy is too proud to take a job from his neighbor, but commits suicide to ensure his family has the financial stability that he couldn't provide.
Willy refers to others around him who are more successful as having luck or charisma. He talks about how he regrets not going with his brother to Africa, which made him rich.
After he is fired, Willy realizes he will never succeed in business, and that, despite his best efforts, his son's have not achieved the ambitions he held for them.
What is done is done, what will be will be. Willy is too old to change and cannot change the past.
The audience is left with a feeling of pity for Lohman’s desperate suicide, and fear that they too may be living lives where their dreams will never be realized.
