Arthur Miller's Pulitzer Prize-winning play that forever changed the meaning of the American Dream and won
multiple Tony Awards for the 2012 Broadway production directed by Mike Nichols and starring Philip
Seymour Hoffman as the tragic hero Willy Loman and Andrew Garfield as his son Biff


Willy Loman, the protagonist of Death of a Salesman, has spent his life following the American way, living out his
belief in salesmanship as a way to reinvent himself. But somehow the riches and respect he covets have eluded him.
At age sixty-three, he searches for the moment his life took a wrong turn, the moment of betrayal that undermined his
marriage and destroyed his relationship with Biff, the son in whom he invested his faith. Willy lives in a fragile world
of elaborate excuses and daydreams, conflating past and present in a desperate attempt to make sense of himself and of
a world that once promised so much.

Arthur Miller's masterpiece has steadily seen productions all over the world since its 1949 debut. As the noted Miller
scholar Christopher Bigsby states in his introduction, "If Willy's is an American dream, it is also a dream shared by all
those who are aware of the gap between what they might have been and what they are."

Reviews
New York Times Book Review
A contemporary classic....Listen to this album.
I read this book for an AP English Summer Reading assignment and quite enjoyed it. It was a bit hard to follow at first
but once you get started you start to understand more. It's a sad but interesting story. Warning: It's not for light readers
there is depth to it so it requires a bit of thinking on the readers part.
Death of a Salesman, by Arthur Miller, is a superbly written play that typifies common misconceptions of the
American Dream. Set in the 1940's in idealized suburbia, Miller ingeniously reveals that as an overriding theme as
well as lessons on abandonment and betrayal. Readers witness the insecure Willy Loman slowly deteriorate mentally
as his career as a traveling salesman progressively fails. His digression is seen through the interactions of his family in
the house that he views as a major symbol of success, as well as in and around New York City and Boston. Linda
Loman, his loyal wife, suffers through his constant disillusions and failed dreams. As Willy turns slips more and more
from reality into a fantasy world created around his hopes and wishes, Linda continues to encourage his support from
their sons Biff and Happy in the only way that she knows is right. Willy's retirement into the world in his mind is due
mainly to his reliance on material wealth for fulfillment and the despair he feels when he can no longer provide it for
his family. Therefore, Miller leads readers to reevaluate what things are most important to place value in. With the
modern world increasingly leaning towards material wealth as a way to find happiness, this play is invaluable to keep
readers from straying down the same path of decay as Willy Loman. Miller also offers a great deal of appeal to readers
through Willy's relationships with his sons. The battle between desire to see his kin succeed and the necessity to be
understanding of different desires is an epic story held together by the love of family. All readers can relate to a tale so
engrossing in nature. Arthur Miller created an outstanding literary work that's universal themes earn it a status among
the timeless classics.

Death of a salesman wow what can I say about it? It was good but very depressing and it had a lot of deep meaning
and you really need to be able to read between the lines to understand it well. It was hard to fallow because it switch
between memories so often. I only recommend this book if you feel like being deep, youre a good reader, and you
really have nothing else to read. I liked but if youre a normal thinker and dont really think about what your reading
then you really wont like this book and you shouldnt read it because you wont give it enough respect
