  • Willy Loman never goes through Anagnorisis because he never has a moment of self discovery. He never realized his mistakes and never desired to make them right, in the proper way.
  • At the end of the performance, the audience was emotionally moved because Willy commits suicide. We feel pity for him even though he had the chance to make things right.
