Death of a salesman by Arthur Miller( Sound Recording )

In the person of Willy Loman, the aging, failing salesman who makes his living riding on a smile and a shoeshine, Arthur Miller redefined the tragic hero as a man whose dreams are at once insupportably vast and dangerously insubstantial. He has given us a figure whose name has become a symbol for a kind of majestic grandiosity-- and a play that compresses epic extremee of humor and anguish, promise and loss, between the four walls of an American living room"--Penguin Books
