It’s a pretty generally understood fact that Death of a Salesman is an American classic. I loved this play when I first read it in high school four years ago, and I’m happy to say I found it to be just as amazingly profound this time around. As you probably know, the play follows the life of Willy Loman, a man struggling to make his life meaningful. This play is about the loss of the American Dream; though Willy has always lied to himself about his successes, he must face the reality that he’s lived a life without true impact or meaning. I can’t say much more than it’s brilliant, heartbreaking, and surprisingly relatable, even 65 years after it was released. If you haven’t read this play, it’s about time you change that.
