Ever since it was first performed in 1949, Death of a Salesman has been recognized as a milestone of the American theater. 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. Death of a Salesman compresses epic extremes of humor and anguish, promise and loss, between the four walls of an American living room.
