Miller uses the bridge in the title of the play to represent the divide between justice and the law, The bridge is from poor Brooklyn to rich Manhattan, and symbolises the financial problems faced by workers at the docks in the 1950s. Miller uses the title ‘A View from the Bridge’ so that the audience can focus on looking at the play more objectively and can have a bigger perspective on law and justice rather than looking at what the characters represent. Having a more holistic view of the play can be seen as looking down from a bridge. Miller presents the two ideologies of justice and law by saying that there is a ‘bridge’ between them and that you have to have a view of both, unlike Eddie did.
