He had become obsessed with Baby Emily for the “scary ticklish sensation” she invoked in him and the comfort she gave him in Amy’s absence (Oates 1). Although he was sullen when Amy passed away, he had appeared to be apathetic because there was no safe space for a young boy to show emotion. Instead, he grieved for his cousin by stealing her doll and crying for her in private; however, he had cried because she was gone, not because she had passed away. Robbie having to hide his tendency to be loving and caring, is a result of the gender…

The American Dream as a very important part of ‘Death of a Salesman’ however only played a minor role in the text ‘FOUR.’ In ‘Death of a Salesman’, it was Willy’s ideals of what an American Dream is that landed him in the place that he is.
