She is Willy´s wife and the mother of Biff´s and Happy´s. Linda loves her husband very much and that´s why she cares more about Willy than about her two sons. Linda is very naive and rather optimistic. Although she tries to protect Willy from reality and its dangers, Willy supresses her.

Linda runs the household and tries to get by on money. She doesn´t complain about anything and that´s why she cant´understand why Willy has committed sucide.

Willy´s dream is to become a very famous and rich salesman. He wants to build a house with a big garden for his wife. At the age of 60 he realizes that his dream hasn´t come true and commits suicide.



For society he loses his worth when he isn´t able to work so hard any longer.

The father can´t understand that his son Biff does not have the same dream as he himself. The trouble is that Willy never listens to his sons when they want to talk to him.
