Abstract:

[This book] 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 shoeshine, [the author] redefined the tragic hero as a man whose dreams are at once insupportably vast and dangerously insubstantial.
