In the play Death of Salesman, I wonder what drove Willy to think the way he did on life, did he not learn from his failures? I think Willy just wanted to have a good life, but along the way on achieving his American Dream, he picked up a crave for success, and feeling successful. He wanted a good life, but forgot what that meant, he was brainwashed by success. He forgot why he wanted to be successful.
