A View from the Bridge by Arthur Miller is a powerful and compelling play in which the main character, Eddie, succumbs to his weakness and loses control of his emotions
Miller?s characterisation of Eddie and input from narrator, Alfieri, result the audience questioning whether Eddie is a depraved, controlling antagonist or a tragic hero. The kissing scene, which occurs at the beginning of Act Two, is important to the plot of the play because it marks a dramatic climax to Eddie?s secret obsessive love for Catherine. From the beginning of the play there have been hints of Eddie?s concealed lust for his niece, for example we see from the beginning that he takes a keen interest in her appearance, ?Beautiful.
