  • For this essay I have chosen to go with the thematic approach: choosing the theme The Quest for Identity/Coming of Age.

*Perform a character study. Discuss what motivates this character to do what he or she does or perhaps discuss how and why the character deals with the conflicts within the play. You could also choose to compare and contrast two characters.

*Compare and contrast the play—or some element of the play—with another literary work. Please contact your instructor if you are planning to use a literary work for comparison that has not been covered in this class.

Thesis Statement:

In Arthur Miller’s story he created a mystery filled with twists and turns while showing how Willy Loman is stuck in both his personal and work life. Willy’s life seems to be unraveling right before his eyes, and he embarks on a quest to find identity and purpose in his seemingly dramatic life.
