A View from the Bridge
After reading Arthur Miller's play "A view from the bridge," I am
convinced that the most striking character is Marco. He is an Italian
immigrant that moved illegally to the United States with his brother
Rodolpho to work as longshoremen, since at the time (the play was
written in 1955) his country of origin, Italy, was going through a
major economic depression because of the outcome of World War II. In
showed first 75 words of 818 total
showed last 75 words of 818 total
and sick children in Italy. This thoughts, and knowing that Eddie has
no regrets for what he has done makes him furious, and at the end of
the play he seeks revenge.
I belive this play would not be complete without this character.
If Marco would have not existed, it would have left Eddie unpunished
and alive, and this would be in conflict with the very conception of
drama which drives this works.
