- 1. The book Death of a Salesman is a play about a salesman who wants to be well liked by everyone. The title of this book fits the book because there are two salesmen who die in the book.

- During most father-son relationships, there are certain times where the father wants to become more of a ?player? in his son?s life than his son believes is necessary. The reasons for this are numerous and can be demonstrated in different ways. Miller is able to give an example of this behavior through the actions of Willy Loman.
- The idea that any person can rise from humble beginnings to greatness is the basis of the American Dream. Arthur Miller paints a harsh picture of this ideal in the drama Death of a Salesman. The main character, Willy Loman, is a complex and tragic figure.

- The themes in this play are described and unfurled mostly through Willy Loman?s, the main character in the play, thoughts and experiences. The story takes place mainly in Brooklyn, New York, and it also has some ?flashback? scenes occurring in a hotel room in Boston.
- “The tyrant dies and his rule ends, the martyr dies and his rule begins.” (Kierkegaard) In terms of Antigone, this quotation makes a lot of sense.
