William D. Jeffrey

In Arthur Miller's drama, Death of a Salesman, the source of Loman's failure and suicide is a pathological narcissistic ego ideal. Loman projects his pathologic ego ideal onto "the American dream." Because of his narcissism he believes the ego ideal is real and that life should mirror the ego ideal. Loman dies for his ego ideal rather than let his ego ideal die.
