"Death Of A Salesman" is a 1949 play written by American playwright Arthur Miller. It was the recipient of the 1949 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Tony Award for Best Play. The play is mostly told from the point of view of the protagonist, Willy, and the previous parts of Willy's life are revealed in the analepsis, sometimes during a present day scene. It does this by having a scene begin in the present time, and adding characters onto the stage whom only Willy can see and hear, representing characters and conversations from other times and places. Einstein Books' edition of "Death Of A Salesman" contains supplementary texts: • "Tragedy And The Common Man", an essay by Arthur Miller. • An excerpt from "The Man Who Had All The Luck", an early play by Arthur Miller. • A few selected quotes of Arthur Miller.
