Death of a Salesman Paperback
Willy Loman, the protagonist of Death of a Salesman, has spent his life following the American way, living out his belief in salesmanship as a way to reinvent himself. But somehow, the riches and respect he covets have eluded him. At age sixty-three, he searches for the moment his life took a wrong turn, the moment of betrayal that undermined his relationship with Biff, the son in whom he invested all his faith.
Miller's masterpiece has steadily seen productions all over the world since its 1949 debut. As the noted Miller scholar Christopher Bigsby states in his introduction, "if Willy's is an American dream, it is also a dream shared by all those who are aware of the gap between what they might have been and what they are."
