An Analysis of the Dramatic Impact of the Restaurant Scene in Death of a Salesman
Death of a Salesman was first performed in 1947 and was seen to be a powerful and moving piece of drama. I will now be going through the appeal and the impact of the play.
First of all, the book of Death of a Salesman can be said to be a universal book, in the sense that it has broad range of themes and is a book for everybody. It has all sorts of aspects, and real life situations that one has to take in mind. Lets first look at the characters. Willy Loman is an insecure and self-deluding travelling salesman. Despite him desperately searching through his past, he is not the typical tragic hero that we have come to depict. He is rather a man who doesn't achieve self-realization and self-knowledge. He fails to realize his personal failure, and an emotional and spiritual understanding of himself. Willy's crucial problem is the failure to understand the anguished love that is offered to him. This is the real problem, and tragedy of the play.
