For your final discussion on the play, discuss how Willy was both a victim and volunteer in his fate:
VOLUNTEER â€“ Willy brought all his problems on himself. He has psychological issues that he chose to ignore etc. he also chose the affair and to ignore other signs that he was not in the right business etc.
VICTIM â€“ This was not Willy’s fault. The “delusional” American Dream clouded his vision and made him believe something that wasn’t real. The era the play was set in was a rapidly changing time and those who could not keep up were left in the dust.
Discuss both sides using examples from the play.
This discussion counts twice as much as the others. Argue! Persuade! Pontificate!
At least one thoughtful initial post and two full responses to others.
