The Death of a Salesman
'The Death of a Salesman' is one of Arthur Miller's earlier plays and was written in 1949. The play is based in Yonkers, New York in 1940. Miller's Father was in a substantial financial crisis as there was a recession which led the family business to be put in jeopardy. Due to the recession and the Miller financial crisis, Arthur had to pay for his own tuition to study journalism and play writing in the University of Michigan. All of Arthur's plays were based on his life and all of the experiences he had encountered. Miller wrote his plays this way as he would have a first hand account of the events. 'The Death of a Salesman' is a disguise of Arthur Miller's past time of his family business's bankruptcy and financial crisis.
In 'The Death of a Salesman', Willy Loman is in a crisis. He's about to lose his job, he can't pay his bills, and his sons Biff and Happy don't respect him and can't seem to live up to their potential. He wonders what went wrong and how he can make things up to his family.
