Product Description


'Miller's 1949 play was his first great success, and even now its time-bend structure, in which past and present exist side by side on stage, is dramatically startling' Lyn Gardner, Guardian, 08.05.10 'The uniform structure and consistent approach evident in these [first] four volumes make them readable and accessible to students and scholars alike and guarantee that these editions will certainly persist as invaluable tools for those who both enjoy Miller as a dramatist and study him as a significant social and American spokesperson.' The Arthur Miller Journal 'This student edition features and extensive introduction by Enoch Brater which makes it the perfect edition for students of literature and drama.' Sardines magazine (Autumn 2010) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

The audio does not follow the script.

Entire sections are missing. Very ineffective for teaching as the students cannot follow along.

Great commentary with the actual play Nov. 23 2014

Unlike other guides with commentary, this one contains the entire play, Death of a Salesman. And, even better, the commentary was insightful and professional. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for commentary combined with actual content.

Arthur Miller's Magnum Opus. Jan. 22 2015
By Mr. Math Expert - Published on
Death of a Salesman is a well-written tragedy by Arthur Miller and is leagues better than his other play called All My Sons. The older play is more artificial in language while the other play is more real, honest, and human. However, in both plays, Arthur takes the easy way out by having the father to commit suicide. It's cheap for him to do that in All My Sons, but in Death of a Salesman it makes sense. Pretty much, Willy is a blue collar working man who tries his best with his sons, but they don't seem to appreciate it and have turned into thieves, womanizers, and pathological liars. The wife and the mother of the two boys is hopeful, chooses to see and hear what she wants to see and hear, and understands his husband's problems. That's why she can't make her two boys to see the world the way she sees it. In the end, Willy isn't the loser, but the two boys definitely are because the meaning of hard work is lost on them. Nobody said life is easy. It has been something that many high schoolers don't understand until they graduate, go out in the real world, and fend for themselves. Then, five years later, most of them have wished that they were back in high school again because they had it so easy. Tough luck. All in all, if there is a reason why Arthur Miller is a great playwright, look no further than Death of a Salesman.

Abridged- terrible. Missing too much to use it as a teaching tool.
