A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE SECTION 3 In this section I will analyse the conversation between Eddie, Marco and Rodolfo at the dinner table. To make it easy to understand I will break the section into 2 parts, the first part is What does the conversation show us about each of the characters? First of all I will talk about MARCO. At the beginning of act 1 we are introduced to a person called Marco who appears shy at first but as the scene continues we start to see a different person.

Another point in which Marco is trying to show Eddie is that he is the bigger man and that if he messes with Rodolfo he messes with him.

Marco is seen as a shield that has to protect his little brother, he has warned Eddie on a number of occasions, this keeps everyone interested and makes them think, and again the scene ends as a cliff hanger. Now things have changed, as Marco has become the main man. ...read more.
