POSITIVE IMAGES OF RURAL LIFE
When Willy talks to Linda about his journey back home, he describes the scenery that he drove
past: "the trees are so thick, and the sun is warm"
"remember those two elm trees out there?... [we] hung the swing between them" ­Willy,
reminiscing. ([we] is Biff and Willy.)
"this time of year it was lilac and wistaria... then the peonies... and the daffodils" ­Willy, to Linda,
reminiscing.
("Texas is cool now, and it's spring") ­Biff, about his job.
"raise cattle, use our muscles. Men built like we are should be working out in the open" ­Biff, to
Happy, complaining about the city jobs.
"with a ranch I could do the work I like and still be something" ­Biff and his love for the outdoors.
"just swingin' there under those branches" ­Willy, about the hammock he bought in Albany.

("we'd be out playin' ball again...!) ­Happy, to Biff.
"little place out in the country, and I'll raise some vegetables, a couple of chickens..." ­Willy,
