In this paper, I will not focus on a possible moral message of the play. As I am not the first to engage in this matter, I will be able to present the viewpoints of different critics, and to compare them. It seems to be a characteristic of Death of a Salesman that many reasons can be named for its catastrophic ending — its discussion has been very controversial.
It has repeatedly been criticized that Arthur Miller makes use of fuzzy logic in his rines. On the one hand, one can see obvious traits of social criticism in Death of a Salesmanon the other hand Miller presents two characters — Charley and Bernard — that succeed in a capitalistic world without acting unfair. Miller condemns a social order ruled by wealth while approving of the right way to live in it.
This division marks the two directions criticism has been following through the years. For that reason, I will divide my inquiry into two sections: Cultural Reasons and Psychological Reasons. Whenever necessary, arthr two domains will be cross-linked in order to form a synthesis. When verifying quotations from Death of a SalesmanI will use plain numbers in brackets, such as Excerpts from secondary works will be substantiated in an extended form, e.
Numbers refer to the pages the quotations were found on.
In fact, several scenes of the play, among them some of the most important ones, seem to support this point of view:. Howard is busy with his new tape recorder. All that counts for people like him is efficiency. Willy hits the nail on its head when he says:. In those days, there was personality in it, Howard. There was respect, and comradeship, and gratitude in it.
Willy adores him — to him he is a myth. And, by God, I was rich. The scenes in which Ben appears draw a picture similar to the one in the Howard scene. For instance, Ben provokes Biff to engage in a fist fight with him, and suddenly trips him.
The roughness of power is arthuur only force that helps one surviving there. Obviously, for Ben the whole life is such a jungle.

Miller did not miss the opportunity to endow Ben with the face of death itself. Shortly before Willy decides to kill himself, Miller inserts the following line: Miller depicts a Willy Loman who cannot handle the new technologies thrown on the market by sharply calculating economists, technologies that are now part of daily life. In another scene, he falls victim to the invention of advertisement.
When Willy regrets having bought the refrigerator he hates artbur because it permanently breaks downhis wife Linda says: All of these scenes demonstrate that modern economy and modern life are strange to Willy Loman. To use einds Marxist term that fits in here: He is alienated from his work and his environment.
Brenda Murphy convincingly points handljngsreisenden that in presenting the characters of Charley, Bernard, Howard and Ben, Miller gives examples for the three forms in which wealth is attained in the world of Death of a Salesman.
The first two stand for hard work combined with a stress on education, Howard for inheritance, and Ben for sheer luck.
This brings us to the second point in this section. Yet economic pressure alone does not seem sufficient to explain it. And as pointed out above, Miller in his play presents two characters that get on well with capitalism without becoming reckless monsters: American Studies – Literature.
