In an effort to convince Howard, Willy resorts to old memories of his glory days when he worked for  Howard's father. In addition, Willy attempts to explain why he became a salesman. He describes  Dave Singleman, a well-respected professional salesman who made a lasting impression on people  and was publicly mourned when he died. Howard remains impassive to Willy's entreaties and instead  informs Willy that Willy can no longer work for the company. Howard advises Willy to appeal to Biff  and Happy for financial assistance, and he instructs Willy to return his sample cases by the end of  the week.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
