Good afternoon.

I suggest beginning your research by doing an internet search for "To an Athlete Edying Young" and "theme"; this will help you get a feel for what has already been published on the topic. When it gets down to it though, analysis is your own personal interpretation of a text and how you interpret it; thus, no one except you can write your content. What does this text remind you of in your own life? Once you identify this/these item(s) you can begin your rough draft.

Good afternoon.

It is up to you to interpret and analyze the material your instructor assigned to you. Because this is specific to a certain text and a specific curriculum, I will not be able to assist you with these details. I suggest you contact your instructor, classmates, or academic advisor to help you find study assistance for this particular class; they will be able to help you study the work.

Death of Salesman" is about a man 's who persuit of achieving what he believes to be the "American Dream." Willy Loman. Willy Loman is a tragic hero. He has been following attributes where as when he died it benefits to someone. Willy must be held responsible for his poor judgment, disloyalty and foolish pride. He is presented as a victim of society. He has indirectly indicated that Willy is not higher status with his last name "Loman to Lowman". He is a victim of his own flawed thoughts. Therefore, his own flaw leads him to tell lies and be successful to a point where he decides to kill himself and leave money for his oldest son Biff to be successful. Willy Loman, the troubled father as well as husband. He is a man struggling to hold onto the little dignity he has left in a changing society. Willy has failed to overcome his pride to accept reality and therefore uses lies and illusion. Willy must be held responsible for his poor judgment, disloyalty and foolish pride. Willy's downfall is his own doing which is brought about by his unrealistic dreams, his pride, his career choice and his failure to manage life's problems.

You've got a good idea for your introduction here. I think you can shorten it up by stating that the main character falls prey to poor judgment, disloyalty, and foolish pride as a result of his unrealistic dreams and his career choice. Save the examples (such as Biff's) for the body of your essay.
