...Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman: A Play of Contrasts Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman may not be comparable to his other literary pieces considering the reader/audience's response since it appears so ordinary, not suspenseful, and all is said in the title. One could ask: "So what about the death of a salesman" One does not need to guess what will happen to the protagonist. It will only be the manner of his death that will be expected and disclosed. For a reader/audience, it would not be an exciting and attractive fiction if it is already known that the protagonist dies at the end of the story. The manner of his death and the motive for his death are not usually as inviting as having... ...

...Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman One of the most important plays of the twentieth century, Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman (1949) changed the way in which people perceived the genre of tragedy.

These models, based on the Aristotelian ideas of what constituted a tragedy, were unsuited for an articulation of the modern condition in general and the American one in particular. This paper shall look at these concepts through the symbols and characters that are a part of this play. Willy Loman is one... of Arthur...

Death of a Salesman is seen by Sandage (2005) as a powerful attack on the idea of the American dream, which according to the character of Willy Loman, appears to be the chance to become rich and famous without putting in any hard work. Loman is seeking happiness through money but he does not put in the effort which is needed in order to obtain the happiness/money he desires.
