1118 Words5 Pages
This written task connects to Part 4 of the course which looks at the critical study of literature. The specific work that was used for this written piece is by Arthur Miller and is entitled “Death of a Salesman” which is a play showing the life of a man who lives in an eluded American dream. I have decided to write a letter for this written task to show the perspective and opinion on a character’s life before committing suicide in the playDeath of a Salesman.” Within the play “Death of a Salesman,” a resonating theme is that being a likeable character is all that is necessary to make it in the workforce. To debunk this theme, this written task presents arguments that do not support this theme. To show my understanding of this work, I have written about the main series of events that ultimately led to the suicide of this character in the play. This letter will reveal the unheard words of the character who commits suicide in the text as not much is said about this part in this play by Author Arthur Miller, despite playing a crucial role in the construction of the theme being a likeable character is all that is necessary to make it in the workforce. This letter appeals to the family of character committing suicide.
