  1. When Willy Loman says, Work a lifetime to pay off a house You finally own it, and there s nobody to live in it he s laying bare the hollowness of American capitialism Work a job you don t like, to buy stuff you don t need, and end up a hard working drummer who landed in the ash can like all the rest of them Arthur Miller s masterpiece Death of Salesman was first performed in 1949, but it feels vital to me today, as I grapple to redefine my definition of success in 2017 and beyond.


  2. I surely must have read this classic in high school, but for the life of me do not remember it Didn t even remember what poor Willy sold until I picked up this wonderful little Penguin copy of the screenplay I know I ve said this before, but I love Penguin books They have the coolest book covers Anyway, now I ve read it and won t likely forget itd, yes.poor Willy Loman He is a lost soul and aging 63 year old salesman who has spent his sorry life traveling from state to state selling or trying to [...]


  3. I teach Death of a Salesman every year, so I love the original play Buy it in hard copy, though The kindle edition doesn t have any formatting or paragraph breaks It is impossible to read.


  4. I needed this book for a class There are no line breaks, which makes reading this play, complete with stage directions and character cues, than a little difficult It is a terrible version to buy Don t do it Spend the extra money on one with proper formatting Version 2016 Crome Publishing


  5. The only reason I purchased this was to read for a class I didn t like it Wanted to like it but couldn t bring myself to


  6. I read this book play because I ve always heard it by name, heard references about it and just wanted to see what it was really about I gathered that by the title that a salesman died, but did not know that it was literally was going to be that I thought that there may have been some kind of metaphor at play with the title Anyway, it follows Willy Loman and his last day on earth He is 63 and from the looks of it, looks like he is suffering from some form of early onset dementia He talks to himse [...]


  7. I love this play, but not because it shows that the American Dream isn t possible Willy Loman is a fundamentally dishonest man, and the tragedy isn t his life, it s how he s inflicted that dishonesty on his sons Biff is the only person who is self aware enough to see the damage done, but he doesn t blame his father At the end, Linda and Happy are both clinging to their illusions about Willy and their lives and goals, but Biff is at peace because he knows who he is and why.


  8. Granted I was supposed to have read this in class and I did and it was well worth the read I didn t feel as though I wasted my time It s a great story presented as one characters obvious mental health issues that never get spoken to and the inflammation of those issues It was a cool little play Great characters, the void of superficiality is never latent in this play The characters lie to themselves and each other, alas, the Death of a Salesman.


  9. After a gap of several decades, I recently re read this modern classic, which had been one of my favourite books and plays, and wasn t disappointed It still reads as a gritty story, with credible characters and, of course, brilliant dialogues I wish I could see it performed by great actors again.


  10. I have been in sales most of my working life and I can relate so much to this play story Selling is all about the incentives a fast track to the top and big bucks if you re good, but below the surface is the real pressure of the job to produce the goods, week in, week out, the continual pressure of sales success and the company profit, on that your job depends It s a life of continual ups and downs The people in the business talk of burn out and very few salespeople stay in the job for any real [...]
