Uncle Ben enters, but he is only visible and audible to Willy. He is not real; he is just another  projection of Willy's memory. Willy begins to converse with Ben at the same time he is talking to  Charley. As a result, Charley becomes confused when Willy answers questions that Ben is asking.  Willy is unable to separate his discussion with Ben from his discussion with Charley, so he becomes  flustered and loses his composure. He accuses Charley of cheating. Charley becomes angry and  leaves.

    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.
