Homework Help: death of a salesman!

Posted by rob! on Thursday, October 26, 2006 at 4:52pm.

1. Consider the literal and implied meanings of the title of the play. Summarize those meanings. what is this question asking? I don't get what it wants m,e to do? I am reading death of a sales man!


What does the title say? Who does the Salesman represent? Is this play a social commentary on the middle class in America? Is opportunity dead? Was the Salesman somebody, yet anybody?


Rob, Think of Willy as a "tragic hero". He is destined to his "fate" by his own humanity. Look up the definition of tragic hero and then compare Willy to that definition. You can see a step by step progression to his death, driven by his own choices and the situation in which he finds himself.
