Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Adam Peters 11YF A View From The Bridge Eddie Carbone. Did he make for his own down full? Or were the circumstances just to overwhelming? Eddie was also a immigrant from Sicily, he believed that he had worked his way to the top and believed he that anyone else who decides to migrate should have to work just as hard to get to his status. This would explain Eddie's touchiness and determination. He is determined to succeed in life and to make sure that his family get what they deserve, food, clothes and a roof over their heads. Eddie believes that he's the man of the house and should be shown a great deal of respect, he also believes that his family should help each other out in times of need. ...read more.

Middle

He wouldn't betray another, and deals with others around him. However, we do see the other side of Eddie when he confronts Rodolfo and Catherine and jealousy takes over. Eddie starts to become obsessed to stop Catherine and Rodolfo seeing each other. Carbone now seeks the advice of Alfieri, he doesn't like what Alfieri tells him. He ignores his advice. Alfieri doesn't force the advice on him but is persistent. " This is my last word Eddie, take it or not, that's your business. Morally and legally you have no right, you cannot stop it; she is a free agent." This is the turning point for Eddie in the story. Should he have taken Alfieri's advice? He should have taken the advice, but instead his jealousy got the best of him. ...read more.

Conclusion

Just as he refuses to go, he now believes that Beatrice should do as he wants and stay at home. He has a rival with the other men in the neighbourhood; this is why he needs to be seen as someone who is respected by his family, especially his wife. Alfieri identifies Eddie Carbone as the hero in this tragedy. Eddie is a simple man whom's jealousy gets the better of him. He couldn't take the fact that Rodolfo was going to take Catherine away from him, and he took matters into his own hands. With no respect coming from his wife and the rest of the family his beliefs were shattered. He became so envious of Rodolfo that's when his anger grew. This soon leads to Rodolfo's death. It could have been so easier avoided had he just listened to Alfeiri, kept a level head and let Catherine lead her own life. ...read more.
