Fifty years after the original production of Death of a Salesman, Arthur Miller's play has as much emotional impact upon and relevance to the audience of twenty-first century America as it did when it was first performed. In this collection of papers, taken from the Fifth International Arthur Miller Conference in Brooklyn Heights, New York, authors focus on the play's position in America's dramatic literary canon. The subjects of the essays range from evaluation of the play in economic terms to critical analysis of specific productions, to a look at the body of Miller's works.
