Willy Loman is a traveling salesman that playing the roles of father and husband in the whole family. There are lots of facts to prove that he always talked without making the decision. The crucial fact that profoundly impacts his decision is his unrealistic dream from Ben, and also the memory from the past on his own. Undoubtedly, there are several facts that he has infidelity to both his sons and his wife. The relationship between each other in Loman's family is bad due to Willy's wrong beings. There are some good evidences to show that Willy didn't have father's obligation to teach his sons well in a right track.First of all, during the past of their life, Willy commanded to his sons "Boys!
