The familys in A View from the Bridge are real complex as because of peoples attitudes back then. There is secrecy, suspicion, whap and concern. Ed lapse is weirdly attracted to Catherine and his relationship with his wife Beatrice deteriorates. The relationship between Eddie and Catherine is rattling close, although they are not immediate family Eddie has become a surrogate father and thinks of himself as her real father.He is very protective of his daughter and would probably die for her, but this first innocent lie with perverts into a weird incest worry love for his niece. Eddie still treats her want she is five although she is going out into the life-sized wide world, this shocks Eddie and it makes him closer to her and more possessive which turns ugly when Rodolfo is introduced. At the arise of the draw Eddie has a go at his daughter about what she is wearing, Catherine I dont want to be a pest.Walkin ruffled.This shows he has genuine concern for his daughter simila r to how modern fathers would contradict today this is more of an example to show how much he loves her like a father rather than a lover. He besides doesnt want to let go for his daughter and tries to shoot down every discussion of a job, near the navy yard.. Longshoremen he is unreasonably disagreeing with any suggestions of a real job for Catherine which just amplifies his blatant love for her.Catherine and Beatrices relationship is very different to the relationship between Eddie & Catherine, Beatrice wants the trump for Catherine and wants her to go get the job and wants her to leave, and she is more positive than Eddie and less(prenominal) condole with for her. This could be that she was not as committed to the adoption of Catherine compared to Eddie, but also as she has had less to lose because Eddie has paid for her to go through tutor and to live, whereas Bea is probably getting a little sick of her hanging about.She is very supportive of Catherines independence Well I dont understand when its going ..

The relationship between Bea and Eddie starts of normal as the tactical maneuver starts innocent and all happy families but hen as the play progresses Bea starts to board changes about how Eddie is acting towards her.As Eddie is spending more conviction chasing Catherine around he is spending less time with his wife and she becomes distraught and upset and also starts to understand why this is happening. Because of Bea realising his it explains why she is so astute for her to become independent and leave because it would be better for everyone if she did leave. When am I going to be a wife again Eddie? shows how upset she is comely and Eddie doesnt seem to care about her and tries to ignore the con versation and not provide her with a straight answer.The play basically steers the whole relationship systems so that Eddie and Bea come off worsened while Eddie and Catherine gets better. It is obvious that Eddie starts to stop caring about Bea and more about Catherine Catherine doesnt seem to notice the weird attraction that Eddie has towards her and carries on like normal.
