Storyboard Text

  • Tragic Hero
  • Hamartia
  • Tomato, cabbage, beet, lettuce, it's all here..
  • Hubris
  • I already have a job, why you offering me one?!
  • I'm just looking out for ya' Willy!
  • Willy Loman is the Tragic hero because he thinks he is sane when he is actually completely bonkers. His wife Linda tries supporting him throughout the play.
  • Peripetia
  • I'm sorry Willy, there's just no room for you here.
  • Willy's tragic flaw is that he is completely insane and is on the verge of a mental breakdown. Throughout the play the same theme occurs where willy tries growing seeds in the yard, regardless of everyone's advice to not try.
  • Anagnorisis
  • Ah the Chevy, those were the good ole' days...
  • One time when hubris(excessive pride) is shown by Willy is when Charlie offers him a job. Willy refuses and complains that he already had a job.
  • Catharsis
  • The peripeteia(sudden change of fortune for the worse) in this play, is when Willy gets fired by Howard Wagner. He had him on commission, and then ended up completely firing him. At this point Willy seems to go off the deep end and really changes.
  • Are you crazy?! I need this job!!
  • In this story, Willy never really had a turning point in his life. He continued in the downward slope towards insanity, he continued to abuse everyone, and he still ended up taking out a life insurance policy on himself.
  • The catharsis in this play is when Willy takes the final leap of faith, and kills himself. The audience not only mourns his death, but also mourns his family; they have to deal with all of this after Willy's insanity had peaked.
