Death of a Salesman finish

Miller, Death of a Salesman -- Drama as Literature (EL 250)

Charley: You dont understand. Willy was a salesman And for a salesmen there is no rock bottom in life. He dont put a bolt to a nut, he dont tell you the law or give you medicine. He's a man way out there in the blue, riding on a smile and a shoeshine. And when they start not smiling back-there's an earthquake. And then you get yourself a couple of spots on your hat, and you're finished. Nobody dast blame this man. A salesman is got to dream. It comes with the territory."

What charley says about Willy is all too true. Willy was a salesman and a salesmen puts on a good face no matter what. That was just what Willy was doing in the midst of all that had happened to him in his life and with his family. He was just dreaming of something different he would never acheive.
