Death of a Salesman

When the name of Arthur Miller is mentioned, two of his plays are thought of. Those plays are The Crucible and Death of a Salesman, the latter I'll be reviewing.

Death of a Salesman focuses on aging salesman Willy Loman. He has become distant from his family and he escapes to memories of his past.

The dialogue throughout Death of a Salesman is very natural, fitting the American lifestyle. The most pivotal scene in the play is one of the best I've read. Willy is one of the more believable fictional characters that has been created. Death of a Salesman gives a view of American society slowly crumbling under tension.

My Rating: ****1/2
