I think that Eddie's main character flaw is his unwillingness to accept reality. His reality contains a secret desire for Catherine; this, to Eddie is something disgusting and immoral - as to him she is a daughter and some conflicting inner voice tells him that it is the only way it can be. For her he has an intense love but maybe this love arises from desire. I believe his secret desire for Catherine motivates him a great deal that exposes other/new flaws to the audiences, for instance jealousy and stubbornness. We can see from Eddie's actions and the way he talks to Catherine that he has some sort of secret desire for her.

Perhaps another person in the village? Someone you know." Hale knew that Tituba should confess, should say that she compacted with the devil or she would be hung, but he still accuses her with no proof. Just because one person is accused and confesses, Hale brings in the accusations that other people around town are witches. Another instance is when Reverend Hale says, "If she is truly in the Devil's grip we may have to rip and tear to get her free."(39)

Again, he uses the single, brief statement, "Isn't that a remarkable thing." Thus this simple statement leads Willie to do a remarkable thing for his family-he commits suicide. To finalize, a line used early on as a clich�, during the course of the play becomes a commentary on the state of Willy Loman's life and how far from reality he truly was. Yet, though Willy did find some events in his life "remarkable," he could not realize that as a salesman and a father, he was a failure. Unfortunately, this lack of understanding leads to his death, a death he could not escape for he brought it on himself. Isn't that remarkable?

Death of a salesman - What are the dramatical devices that miller uses to show the disintegration of wily Loman?
To be hard working, honest and have ambition were the ways of the American Dream. This lead onto success, wealth and in due time - power. However, this dream for everyone developed, and encouraged greed, selfish behaviour, pride, and rivalry between one another. Willy Loman was 'caught-up' in this American Dream. It causes business to develop in the world. Capitalism and the profit motive and competitive instinct, makes Willy have a weakness in his personality. This weakness was caused by a combination of business pressures. Willy wants to prove himself through successes a salesman, but as he fails, his own life destroys him.
