Product Description

Review

'This student edition features and extensive introduction by Enoch Brater which makes it the perfect edition for students of literature and drama.' --Sardines Magazine, Autumn 2010

A sad, complex but fascinating play that remains as important now as it did when it was first staged all those years ago. These student editions go a long way to enhance this fact rather than simply highlight the legacy of the great Arthur Miller. Essential reading. --Ink Pellet, Spring 2011

Format: Hardcover
A fulfilled life, including richness and wealth which the modern America offers -

Who doesn't want to live life that way? This isn't just the vision or idea of most Americans, but also a key aspect of the American Dream. Arthur Miller presents his point of view of it in the drama "Death of a Salesman".

Willy, an aged salesman, is the main character of the play and fits perfectly into the role of a typical dreamer of the American ideals such as acquiring material comforts by being "well-liked" or "personal-attractiveness" and not by working and studying hard. Oddly, he does never achieve his goals, nor do his both of sons, Biff and Happy. His faith in his version of the American Dream makes him unable to handle the problems of reality; therefore he always escapes into the past by day dreams and delusions. However, whenever he starts to realise his lack of achievements, he is falling apart into more and more pieces. This results in a dramatic ending.

By using this example of a common American family in the modern society, Miller manages it quite well to give the reader the possibility of identification that makes him think of the difficulty of the American Dream. I think everyone is able to find himself in one of the characters in Miller's play. They are kept very ordinary, but still have a strong personality yet, an important asset. Furthermore Arthur Miller's play implies other motifs such as the pioneer spirit and very original metaphors and symbols, which deep meaning increase the understanding of the novel. Anyway, I think that the usage of the metaphors as well as some stylistic devices complicates the reading and understanding of the story for the younger readership.

I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in a closer look at the modern society, not only because of its plot, but also because of its realistic representation with its critical view towards the American Dream.

I became a fan of Arthur Miller after seeing one of his plays on stage – “All of my Sons”. A powerful and tear-jerking story line if ever there was one. I was under the firm opinion that this one was a one-off. I was proven wrong with Death of a Salesman. A totally absorbing read.
I saw Willy - could feel his pain even... I had tears in my eyes during that last scene and was left grief-stricken at the end of the book! Arthur Miller truly is a powerful writer. It may take time to appreciate his writing – but if you take the time – you will be rewarded with a wonderful treat. I intent to read all of Arthur Miller’s writing. I find his work so moving. I hope other readers learn to appreciate him as much….He is simply amazing!

This is a great copy of the play for GCSE study - durable with useful exercises in the back for keeping track of the story-line, themes and characters - but I think it is being discontinued as I have been unable to get hold of it in big batches for my incoming Year 10 students. This is a shame!

I had to get this book because I lost mine and I am studying it for A-Level, this was cheap and in great condition when arrived, it's better than the one school handed out in the first place! Fast delivery! And overall I am pleased I have made this order:)

Have always adored this play, so much pain and suffering, allows the reader (or audience member if witnessed on stage) to connect with each of the characters as it is real, real issues and pain at a lack of dreams becoming reality!

Format: Paperback
A classic sad tale of chasing empty dreams, and just as relevant today.
If you want to really get inside the Salesman character circa 70&80s check out Doug Lomonds book -Nature Identical.
