A View from The Bridge

Extracts from this document...


Beatrice's Monologue What Eddie did was wrong. He snitched on my cousins who were only trying to make a living. He shouldn't have died though. Not like that. Marco's son is ill he needed money so I had to help them, I couldn't leave them. I was so happy when they came. It had been so long. Then I saw the look on Eddies face. Why was he unhappy? Didn't he realise what this meant to me? He seemed to get along with Marco, talking and taking an interest in his life. It was Rodolfo he didn't like. I thought maybe it was because there seemed to be something between Catherine and Rodolfo. I know he is very overprotective of Catherine. She is like the daughter he never had. ...read more.


Eddie knew that if this happened he would lose Catherine forever. Eddie told the Immigration bureau about Marco and Rodolfo being in the country illegally. Then he made them move out.

She didn't know it was something she shouldn't do. She had grown up acting like that around Eddie. I suppose it was a bit immature though. She should have learned, maybe it was me that should have told her. There was so much I could have done, but it's too late now my husband is dead. Eddie was a good man. He was a good husband to me. His jealousy and pride cost him his life. He was always good to Catherine he gave her everything she wanted. But he tried to stop her having the one thing she really needed and now he's paying the consequences. He betrayed Marco and Rodolfo and he betrayed the Sicilian Code. In Sicily if Marco hadn't killed him, someone else would have. ...read more.
