Explanation of the Book:

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

Explanation of the Book:

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 relationship with his wife 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.

Explanation of the Book:

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.
