Death of a Salesman-Linda Monologue

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

This is a monologue for Linda, from the play 'Death of a Salesman.' (Linda enters the kitchen stage right; walking at a fast pace. She places a basket of washing near the fridge and then looks up hopelessly at the ceiling she then lifts her hands up as if questioning someone.) Linda: Why Willy, Why? Why did you have to go and do this to us all? How do you except me to cope will all the jobs you have left upon me now? Linda: How am I going to cope without you? You are very selfish Willy, very selfish for doing this to us all but...but you have always done the best for us. Billy and Happy are blaming themselves and I do sometimes, I sometimes do. ...read more.

I cannot do it all on my own, the house, Biff and Happy. If you had thought about what you was about it do before you did it and thought that maybe it might have an affect on me and the kids then would you have still done it? (Linda walks over to the kitchen sink and pours herself a glass of water, she then sits down at the kitchen table, whilst looking very tensed and stressed.) Linda: (depressed tone) I am trying to keep the family happy, I really am, I am trying my hardest and now look what has happened, and therefore I end up blaming myself, Willy I do. Maybe we should have tried harder to get you a better job, like you said we always deserved better, but like you also said people have changed and they didn't see you in the same way. ...read more.

Conclusion

I don't feel to well and you aren't helping with the shouting you are creating. Keep the noise down! Linda: (looking tensed again and uneasy) Biff and Happy are so different now, they have changed a lot. I don't know what is going to become of them now, Biff was already...already finding it hard to get a job and finding it hard to even find himself and now he will be stuck in the job he is in for the rest of his life. See Willy you would have s...sorted this out wouldn't you? How can I sort it all now? Happy never seems to want to speak to me and I feel we are all falling apart. I keep telling myself we need to move away from here, start a new life but I just can't, I just can't because of all the memories I have here of us with Biff and Happy; a good family we was, until just recently. ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.

  2. Examine the use of the dramatic monologue in the poetry of Carol Ann Duffy

    The pun, "... his touch." Symbolises both his literal loving touch and his destructive touch that he had on their relationship. Although this light use of humour is designed to soften the harsh criticisms Duffy makes towards men's implied destructive behaviour, it doesn't detract from the tragic ending, "I miss most, even now, his hands..."
