Death of a Salesman Summary:

The Pulitzer Prize-winning tragedy of a salesman’s deferred American dream Ever since it was first performed in 1949, Death of a Salesman has been recognized as a milestone of the American theater. In the person of Willy Loman, the aging, failing salesman who makes his living riding on a smile and a shoeshine, Arthur Miller redefined the tragic hero as a man whose dreams are at once insupportably vast and dangerously insubstantial. He has given us a figure whose name has become a symbol for a kind of majestic grandiosity—and a play that compresses epic extremes of humor and anguish, promise and loss, between the four walls of an American living room. "By common consent, this is one of the finest dramas in the whole range of the American theater." —Brooks Atkinson, The New York Times "So simple, central, and terrible that the run of playwrights would neither care nor dare to attempt it." —Time

Arthur Miller Summary:

Death of a Salesman has been called the quintessential American play , and Arthur Miller remains above all the creator of Willy Loman and his tormented family. Half a century after its epochal premire on Broadway the play is constantly revived in the USA and all over the world, including China. It has been made into several cinema and television films, and audiences are still deeply moved by this poignant American tragedy that manages to present all the contradictions and the beauty of the American Dream. Using colloquial American English, Miller has written not only a great play a world classic , but also a vibrant poetic tribute to his country. In his own words, Death of a Salesman is really, a love story between a man and his son, and... between both of them and America . The author of the present essay explores the various facets on the drama. Taking into account most of what has been written on Miller's masterpiece, he advances his own theories about a play he has taught in French and American universities for over twenty years.

Arthur Miller s Death of a Salesman Summary:

Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman, the third volume in the Dialogue series, covers six major and controversial topics dealing with Miller's classic play. The topics include feminism and the role of women in the drama, the American Dream, business and capitalism, the significance of technology, the legacy that Willy leaves to Biff, and Miller's use of symbolism. The authors of the essays include prominent Arthur Miller scholars such as Terry Otten and the late Steven Centola as well as young, emerging scholars. Some of the essays, particularly the ones written by the emerging scholars, tend to employ literary theory while the ones by the established scholars tend to illustrate the strengths of traditional criticism by interpreting the text closely. It is fascinating to see how scholars at different stages of their academic careers approach a given topic from distinct perspectives and sometimes diverse methodologies. The essays offer insightful and provocative readings of Death of a Salesman in a collection that will prove quite useful to scholars and students of Miller's most famous play.
