In the play Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller, with which character do you identify the most? Why? Identify similar characteristics, situations, and/or relationships between yourself and the character you choose. Key characters to choose from: Willy Loman, Linda Loman, Biff Loman, Happy Loman, and Uncle Charley.
This question is essentially asking how well you understand a particular character in Death of a Salesman. Of the five you have been offered, Willy Loman is by far the most difficult choice, with Happy Loman probably lying second. This is because Willy is thoroughly deluded, and Happy is also somewhat unrealistic and dishonest. You clearly cannot say that you are deluded, since the very fact of announcing this shows that you are aware of your delusions.
Biff Loman is perhaps the easiest character with whom to identify. Although he is thirty-four years old, Biff himself says that he is "like a boy," displaying teenage angst and uncertainty as well as the pain of lost illusions. He loves his father but sees the essentially false and corrupt nature of the values with which he has been raised.
Linda Loman and Uncle Charley are rather neutral, sympathetic, supporting characters. If you have ever had to live with the delusions and neuroses of others while remaining calm and helping them, you may find that you identify with one of them. However, they have few flaws, which makes it difficult to say you resemble them. This is most true of Charley, since Linda shares some of her husband's shallow materialism and participates to some extent in his warped view of life.
