The paper discusses how Willy Loman represents the failures of the aging businessman as a tool for modern society and the American dream of materialism that he simply cannot live up to. The paper describes how his family is invariably caught up in this quest for material success, and since he is incapable of finding money from sales, he must fulfill his egotistical fantasies of success by domineering and trying to control his family. The paper asserts that this leads to many distortions about success that drive Willy to represent the wrong images to his sons, destroying the moral fabric of his family altogether.
