, it's likely that you've found one of the important characters other than Willy to be particularly interesting. Perhaps you sympathize more with this character's conflicts or understand his or her viewpoint better than that of the other characters. Based on what you've learned up to this point in the play, write a brief character sketch of your chosen principal character—any important character other than Willy himself. In all likelihood, you've done character sketches in previous English language arts courses. A character sketch, remember, should discuss factors such as the person's • personality traits • values and motivation • struggles and conflicts • strengths and weaknesses But a good character sketch should dig a bit deeper than this. For instance, if Linda Loman interests you, you might ask questions like these: Does Linda understand Willy? Is there depth to her character, or is she the soft and submissive wife and mother she sometimes appears? Does she have a realistic view of her sons? Is she just when she says that her sons have treated their father the same way the Wagner company did? Finally, remember that when writing a character sketch you should always provide evidence and reaso ns to back up your points.
