My initial reaction to the play was absolutely hideous and my malcontent was vibrant I felt that reading A View From The Bridge was a tedious waste of time and that the play itself was a trivial piece of literature I found the play to be neither intriguing nor interesting in the tiniest fashion The only aspect that I found mildly intriguing was the character of the protagonist Eddie Carbone as it miraculously appealed to my passion for psychology Unfortunately this enigma of Eddies constitution only guided me through the first act where after I was completely annoyed and jaded The two-act horror is centered on the self-delusion of Eddie Carbone as he is thrust into a continuously evolving world in which he will not conform As his environment is morphing with the times Eddie feels compiled to halt it as his pathetic temperament will not wallow him to cope with the change or behave in an orderly fashion Eddie begins to veil himself from his love for his eighteen-year-old niece Catherine near the commencement of the play whence he begins to criticize her and her perfectly normal actions Now dont aggravate me Katie you are walkin wavy I dont like the looks theyre givin you in the candy store And with them new high heels on the sidewalk --- clack clack clack The heads are turnin like windmillsPage 7 In this quote we see how Eddie falsely attributes his harshness towards Catherine as protection rather than selfishness and his obsession to have her solely to himself Another element in Eddies constitution is his personal honor which he tosses aside whence he takes it upon himself to call the Immigration Bureau to reveal his nemesis and competitor for Catherines love Rodolpho to the police This is apparent when Alfieri tells Eddie the consequences to him calling the Immigration Bureau You wont have a friend in the world Eddie Even those who understand
