Abstract:

Miller's most famous play, Death of a Salesman, is the story of the American Dream gone awry, as a small man is destroyed by society's false values. Winner of the 1949 Pulitzer Prize, it is a meditation on the human condition packed into a day in the life of one self-deluded, self-promoting, self-defeating soul. As drama, it builds a sturdy bridge between kitchen-sink realism and spectral abstraction, while uniting the facts of particular hard times with universal themes.
