man’s his job” perfectly sums up the view that the salesmen hold of what it means to be a man. b) “You can't run an office […] you don't have the balls.” (2.1.522-524) (i) Here, Levene continues to attempt to batter down Williamson’s self-esteem claiming that you need “balls,” or rather, to be a man, to run an office. This statement goes back to Williamson’s upbringing: because his education is all from school, he lacks street smarts and thus is viewed as less of a man by his coworkers. c) “Whoever told you you could work with men?” (2.1.956-957) (i) This final blow by Roma to Williamson highlights his ego. He and the other salesmen are real men, while Williamson is just a college boy trying to force his authority and give them leads he knows nothing about, or so he thinks. III) CONCLUSION Williamson can never live up to the expectations of the salesmen because he has been given authority over them that they don’t think he deserves. For this reason, the salesmen in “Glengarry Glen Ross” have a contentious relationship with him. Similarly, my teammates and I never once thought that our coach deserved to tell us how to play the sport that we all loved. Authority created a division in both the workplace of the play and in my team.

    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.
