Eddie’s Character Development at the start of the Play (p5-15) At the beginning of the play, Eddie gives us the first impression that he is a very hardworking and diligent man – Louis You workin’ tomorrow? Eddie Yeah, there’s another day yet on that ship. See ya, Louis. These two lines show us that Eddie has the enthusiasm to work, and he is very friendly to the other workers. After that, Catherine is introduced to the play, and Eddie seems to be fatherly towards her – Eddie Katie, I promised your mother on her deathbed, I’m responsible for you. The tone how Eddie says this to Catherine is very fatherly, and he is referring Catherine as “Katie”, which increase his sense of a fatherly figure to Catherine. Throughout this part of the play, Eddie has been referring Catherine as “Baby” and “Kid”. These show that their relationship is just like the relationship of normal father and daughter. There is also another part that shows how Eddie is like a father to Catherine – Eddie Hey, hey! Take it easy! (He holds her face away from him to look at her) What’re you cryin’ about? Eddie speaks that to Catherine after she has told him about finding a job, and Eddie finally accepted it. This line shows that Eddie is just like a father realizing his daughter is growing up, and he will have to let go of her at some point. The stage director “He holds her face away from him to look at her” also shows a sense of fatherly like image. In this part of the play, we can also see that Eddie is very responsible and tender to his family. Eddie
