On its New York premiere in 1949, Death of a Salesman was hailed as the first great play to question the American consumer dream, and it remains a classic study of failure. Willy Loman, the sixty-year-old Brooklyn salesman who says "I still feel - kind of temporary about myself", has become an archetypal image of devouring insecurity, of the human capacity for self-deception and, through the drama of his family quarrels, of the ways in which the flaws of one generation are imprinted on the next. Perhaps Miller's most remarkable achievement is to have furnished his shifting and inarticulate hero with an unforgettably individual existence.

"No play written in English since the war has the emotional impact of Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman" - Robert Cushman in the Observer.

"Miller puts more of America on to the stage than one would have thought possible... It is a beautiful play in which private and public themes perfectly mesh" - Michael Billington.

"The best-made as well as the most courageous and emotionally compelling play to come from America since the war." - Daily telegraph.
