Death of a Salesman

Willy "Don't talk about something you don't know anything about."
I thought that this line basically helped tell Willy's situation and what is going on throughout the play. He is confused, sad, depressed and feels unwanted. So he turns to talking to himself; which always ends up him saying something exaggerated or untrue. Since his job lowered his status in a way, he has gone down hill. The job was everything to him. His wife Linda, went on a ramble to her sons about their fathers job and why he is the way he is now. She told them that he doesn't deserve this award of "turning at the age of sixty-three and find his sons, who he loved better than his life, one a philandering bum...". She knows that he worked hard everyday and that his children should not act the way they do towards him.

Just wondering... how do you see Willy and Troy, with respect to their attitude towards work and family?

I think that they work hard for their families to have a happy healthy life to their fullest ability. I like Willy more than Troy. I didn't really like how Troy acted towards his wife and family. I think that Willy is more calm and relaxed, even though he might seem a little crazy here and there.
This could be a good topic for my Pro/Con paper later, right?

Yes, it could!
