From the Publisher
All his life Willy Loman has been a travelling salesman, who made a decent living--but not more. Dreams and evasions have kept him from seeing himself as he is. He has learned the American go-getter philosophy by heart, and passed it on to his sons, to their undoing. And then, at sixty-three, finally forced to face reality, Willy turns away, down the only road open to him. Out of this simple human situation, Arthur Miller has fashioned one of the greatest dramas of our time. Death of a Salesman opened at Broadway's Morosco Theatre on February 10, 1949. Under the direction of Elia Kazan, Lee J. Cobb brought Willy Loman to life in a now-legendary production. Instantly acclaimed a modern classic, the play took New York by storm. Within a week tickets had to be printed for performances a year in advance. Now, fifty years after its New York debut, Death of a Salesman is back on Broadway, and Arthur Miller's masterpiece continues to thrive--not only as a permanent contribution to our national literature, but as a moving and vital ongoing presence on the American stage today.
