Post your response to one or more of the following topics, expanding as you feel inspired.

After that, respond to at least one classmate in a substantive manner.   Your initial post and classmate responses should be completed by  Sunday, March 13th.

Incorporate support from the play. In addition, you may consult an outside resource. Use in-text citations and a Works Cited entry for your resources.

Your initial post is valued at 30 points and one thorough response is valued at 20 points for a total of 50 participation points.

 a)      Think about the Loman family and how each one is affected by Willie’s dreams. How do the dreams and aspirations of your parents, grandparents, and ancestors change and impact family relationships from generation to generation?

b)      Consider the place that Willy Loman occupies in relationship to American society.  What drives Willy to suicide?

c)      However it was defined, the American Dream became a national phenomenon and is clearly an influence on Arthur Miller and, as a result, Willy Loman.  Please offer your thoughts about the dream as portrayed in Death of a Salesman and how you think it might be defined today.  Expand this topic as you are inspired.

d)     The diction Miller uses in the play is often a topic for debate.  In the type of family portrayed in this play, would a teenager actually state, “I’ve been remiss?”  Would Loman’s wife be expected to state, “You’re too accommodating, dear?”  Comment on the diction of the play from dialogue to soliloquy.  What is your reaction to Miller’s language choices?
