In the spring of 1948 Arthur Miller retreated to a log cabin in Connecticut with the first two lines of a new play already fixed in his mind. He emerged six weeks later with the final script of Death of a Salesman - a painful examination of American life and consumerism. Opening on Broadway the following year, Miller's extraordinary masterpiece changed the course of modern theatre. In creating Willy Loman, his destructively insecure anti-hero, Miller himself defined his aim as being 'to set forth what happens when a man does not have a grip on the forces of life.'

    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.
