Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller

  • Willy and Biff’s reasons for Biff not succeeding in life

Different reasons appear in the text about Biff’s lack of success in life. Biff believes that his father, Willy, has conditioned him to succeed in the business world for his own pleasure (Miller 7). Biff believes that his father wanted him to take on the big city life, though he feels that he lacks what it takes to succeed in the field. Biff realizes he hates the city life, which his father had brought him up to treasure and has been living a lie throughout his life because of his desire to earn his father’s approval. Biff believes that Willy successfully sold him the American Dream of easy success and this pushed him away from holding any job steadily (Hays & Nicholson 17). In contrast, Willy believes that his son is throwing away his life by blaming his failures on him. Willy believes that Biff failed to hold on to his position in life beyond commonness, to a leadership position. Willy holds on to the myth he has believed in all along, and fails to realize that Biff’s hopes, ambitions, and fears are different.
