'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

It described Linda and and all the others in a way i could never have thought of. It is packed with so much detail and ideas for when you want to write essays in the English exams, that it is definately worth buying it!
Would highly recommend this as a study guide for pupils taking Scottish Higher English.
Willy was clearly burnt out in the end, maybe a bit of a dinosaur in a changing world. He was arrogant in many ways, or perhaps just 'conditioned' as many sales people are. Willy clearly had a concept of himself, his image and what he stood for and wanted for his family – the truth was that latterly he lived a lie and had a very fanciful grip on reality?
Willy loved his family and wanted the best for them, but couldn’t grasp the pressure he was putting his sons under or the fact that they were already conditioned by him and mirrored his salesman's 'bluster' in many ways.
He wasn’t against asking his only real friend and neighbour, Charley, for money when broke, but was far too proud to actually work under him when offered a job. He constantly talked up his old pals in the business world, and was justifiably proud of the the loyal stint he’d put in, but would his long standing boss and his so called business pals return that respect to Willy?
The storyline builds up gradually and it’s quite obvious very early on that Willy is under strain and is not living in reality – things are going to hit the fan, it’s only a matter of when?
The finale is beautifully written - it's compelling and poignant. It's undeniably a great play.
