Death of a Salesman - Biff character profile

Uploaded by jixton on Apr 02, 1999

Biff is one of the main characters in the play "Death of a Salesman" by Arthur Miller. Biff is Willy's and Linda's son. He was the star of the football team and had scholarships to 3 college's, but he flunked math and couldn't graduate, so he tried to work at many different jobs, and failed at each. Finally, he decided to head out west, and work on farms.

Biff came back home this spring, because he didn't know what he was doing with his life. Willy has mood swings and sometimes thinks very highly of Biff sometimes but other times he hates him.

Biff is a no nonsense kind of guy. He gets straight to the point, and doesn't beat around the bush. He cuts straight through it, and isn't afraid that the subject might be touchy or hurt people's feelings. When Biff wasn't seen by Oliver, Happy wanted to make Willy happy, so he just told him that Biff got it, but Biff didn't want that. He told Willy that he didn't get the deal, but Willy refused to listen, so Biff just kept trying. He didn't care that it would hurt willy.

When he confronted Willy in he end, he just yelled at him and brought him to the realization that he wasn't...
