Death of a Salesman Is Willy Loman a hero or a villain Willy could not be possibly thought as a hero There are arguments that support both arguments of Willy being a hero or a villain but most of them support Willy as being a villain Willy did not have the friends and contacts that he claimed and emphasized his boys to have Most of his life became a lie to him and his family Willy commits many faults that categorize him as a villain The most important fault was the affair He might have not wanted to do this on purpose but this does not make him any better Maybe the affair first started out as a business relationship but it did not end that way This affair damaged the life of Biff who caught his father with the woman Biff became disappointed and angry towards Willy and he never went to summer school or attended college Willy was not the only one who faced consequences so did Biff and Linda Willy cheated on Linda and never said anything about the affair to her He sometimes felt guilty about it and that is why Willy made her feel inferior He felt that he could not face her because of what he was doing behind her back Willy was still ashamed of what he had done even after the affair was over He used to give the woman stockings and when he saw Linda knitting some he demanded her to stop knitting stockings He still felt guiltyabout his actions after many years Willys lies to his family about business is another big fault In the story we get to know Willy better as more flashbacks show his past Through the flashbacks the audience gets to notice that the only thing he wanted in life was to be successful as well as his sons All he cared about was business and to be well-liked
