[Death of a salesman]

Arthur Miller's most famous play, Death of a Salesman, has become a key text in Western literature. This classic recording from 1951, was directed by Elia Kazan who premiered the play in 1950. It features Thomas Mitchell and Arthur Kennedy as father and son. Willy, a travelling salesman, based in New York, relentlessly chases material success. As the disappointing nature of his reality crowds in upon him, Willy and his family suffer the tragic cost of his delusions of greatness. A domestic tragedy, a cynical indictment of materialism and the American Dream, and a profoundly moving story of one man's struggle to maintain his dignity in the face of continual adversity--Miller's play is essential listening.

  • ""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. He has given us a figure whose name has become a symbol for a kind of majestic grandiosity-- and a play that compresses epic extremee of humor and anguish, promise and loss, between the four walls of an American living room"--Penguin Books."@en
