Description:

This paper focuses on the characters of these three works and how they epitomize the typical member of society in which they live. The writer analyzes their names as an example of how much this reflects the social class to which they belong and shows how these characters have managed to be marginalized by society despite their best efforts.

From the paper:
Esperanza lives in the impoverished Hispanic community; the only luxury she ever experiences is a ride around the block in a stolen Cadillac. Peanut is part of a working class Catholic family, at a time when Catholics were considered little more than backward cultists, subservient to hundreds of arcane rules and the whims of the pope.
Although no ethnic background is ever specified for him, Willy Loman is a member of a social class that is considered to be most unseemly by mainstream America, the salesman. Worse yet, as the play begins, he is a failed salesman".
