His belief that popularity and risk-taking provide the essential to

    The Tragic Hero "Man is here too little and too passive to play the tragic hero". In Death of a Salesman, Miller presents us with a new version of what we define as tragedy. If we look to the Greek plays such as Oedipus Rex, we are shown very fixed ideas of tragedy that involve a hero falling from high stature to the depths of depravity by the mistakes that he has made. Indeed, Aristotle termed tragedy as downfall that was not the fault of the hero. However, he produced his definitions based lar

The hardships of the lives of women were not dwelled upon as if it were a man\'s life. Most if not all of the females of this era had specific gender roles that were followed.

  • Song of the Unsung Antihero
    Song of the Unsung Antihero Abstract: The sober treatment of a lowly, unheroic protagonist in Arthur Miller\'s Death of a Salesman flatters the audience. The more obvious way that it flatters us is by alienating us from the protagonist in his downfall so that we watch his destruction from a secure vantage. Less obviously, the form of the play, typical of modern American tragedy, romanticizes the protagonist through what I call the audience\'s paradox, that tension created when a serious work of
