* Willy’s contrasting statements on Biff ’s work ethic show how his hopes for Biff have been dashed, but also his capacity for self-delusion. He can’t accept that Biff has turned out to be something other than a great man of the world because he can’t let go of his American Dream of huge success for himself and his sons. * Willy’s car accidents, at this stage of the play, seem to point to his increasing age and physical fragility. As the play progresses, they will come to mean more. * The original American Dream involved proving and making a life for yourself by heading out into the wilds of nature, as Willy’s father and older brother Ben did, and as Willy himself sometimes wishes he did.

When Tom opened up the window to get some fresh air coming into the room, the yellow sheet of paper flew out of the window.
The problem became worse due to the fact how Tom managed and treated his team. Tom was constantly questioning Brian as to why his performance was so poor and even when Brian tried to explain to Tom that he was working as hard as he could, Tom did not reason with him at all and told Brian that he needed to work harder and smarter. This lead to Brian feeling as though his work was not valued as he was the only assistant Tom seemed to focus on when he was angry. At the end of the assignment, the only key motivator for Brian staying on the assignment and not quitting was the $300 bonus that they were to receive upon completion.
