    Willy seems childlike and relies on others for support. The boys agree to try to stay closer to home and start a business together. He has a very 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 is unfortunately willing to cheat a little in order to do so, by taking bribes. The young Biff, a high school football star, and the young Happy appear.

    Yet, Biff is fundamentally incapable of holding down a 9-to-5 job. A caustic attack on the "American Dream" of materialism, Death of a Salesman is a three-act play two acts and a "requiem"centering on the main character, Willy Loman. Having been demoted to a strictly commissions salesman, as he was in the beginning of his career, Willy begins to wonder what missed opportunity or wrong turn led his life to this dismal existence. Happy goes off to bed, and Willy and Charley begin to play cards.

    He fails to appreciate his wife. He vacillates between different perceptions of his life. He moves into the living room and sees Linda. Both brothers are in their mid-thirties. Willy asks him where he can find a seed store. Willy's children, Biff and Happy, are in their early thirties, and staying the night at their parents' when Willy arrives home from work, tired and hallucinating, in a happy little dream world of his own.
