Arthur Miller's best seller Death of a Salesman puts the so-called 'affluent' society of the United States on the stage for the audience to question 'the American consumer dream. The play is a classic study of failure. Willy Loman, the sixty-year-old salesman from Brooklyn, epitomizes the insecurity in society through dramatic family querrels that only demonstrate how the flaws and deceptions of one generation are passed on to the next. Miller's adroit presentation has lent the inarticulate here of the play a distinct and unforgettably individual existence.
One of the few plays that moved me and forced me to think what "success" is ? Is it OK to be just a sales man , not earning enough to be satisfied , yet lead a dual life ? We all have to define what our definition of "success" is. For someone it could be making just enough money to lead a comfortable (and not a luxury life) and be around the people who care for you, and for someone it could be having all the money in the world and be all alone.
