A View From the Bridge
A View from the Bridge is Arthur Millers tragic masterpiece the story of a man fighting against himself. The play is set in the 1950s. Eddie Carbone is an Italian American longshoreman who lives with his wife, Beatrice and his orphaned niece, Catherine. They live in an insular, self-ruled neighbourhood in the shadow of Brooklyn Bridge. Eddie is protective and kind toward Catherine. However, as the play develops we learn that his feelings are something more than that of an uncle. His attachment to her is brought into perspective by the arrival from Italy of Beatrices two cousins, Marco and Rodolpho. They have entered the country illegally, hoping to leave behind hunger and unemployment for a better life in America. Whereas Marco is a physically strong man with a starving family back home, charming Rodolpho is young, good-looking, blond, and single. He sings and dances. Catherine instantly falls for him and the wheels are set in motion for a dramatic climax.
