Characters[ edit ] William "Willy" Loman: He is 63 years old and unstable, insecure, and self-deluded. Willy tends to re-imagine events from the past as if they were real. He vacillates between different eras of his life.
Willy seems childlike and relies on others for support, coupled with his recurring flashbacks to various moments throughout his career. His first name, Willy, reflects this childlike aspect as well as sounding like the question "Will he? Linda is passively supportive and docile when Willy talks unrealistically about hopes for the future, although she seems to have a good knowledge of what is really going on.
She chides her sons, particularly Biff, for not helping Willy more, and supports Willy lovingly even though Willy sometimes treats her poorly, ignoring her opinions over those of others.
She is the first to realize that Willy is contemplating suicide at the beginning of the play, and urges Biff to make something of himself, while expecting Willy to help Biff do so.
Biff was a football star with a lot of potential in high school, but failed math his senior year and dropped out of summer school when he saw Willy with another woman while visiting him in Boston. He likes being outdoors and working with his hands, yet wants to do something worthwhile so Willy will be proud of him.
Biff steals because he wants evidence of success, even if it is false evidence, but overall Biff remains a realist and informs Willy that he is just a normal guy and will not be a great man.
He has a restless lifestyle as a womanizer and dreams of moving beyond his current job as an assistant to the assistant buyer at the local store, but he is willing to cheat a little in order to do so, by taking bribes.
He is always looking for approval from his parents, but he rarely gets any, and he even goes as far as to make things up just for attention, such as telling his parents he is going to get married.
He pities Willy and frequently lends him money and comes over to play cards with him, although Willy often treats him poorly. Charley offers Willy a job many times during visits to his office, yet Willy declines every time, even after he loses his job as a salesman.
He worships Biff and does anything for him. Later, he is a very successful lawyer, married, and expecting a second son — the same successes that Willy wants for his sons, in particular Biff.
Bernard makes Willy contemplate where he has gone wrong as a father. He is dead, but Willy frequently speaks to him in his hallucinations of the past. He however sees Willy as a liability for the company and fires him, ignoring all the years that Willy has given to the company.
