Story – Death of a Salesman

A sixty-year old salesman Willy Loman with two large suitcases goes to his New York house. He is exhausted and a little scared.

His wife Linda begs Willy to negotiate with the landlord to allow the husband to work in New York: it is hard to be a traveling agent at his age.

There was a turning point in the life of Willie: he lives as if in two worlds – the real one, where everything for him is over, and the fictional one, where he is young and has a lot of possibilities for himself and for his sons – Biff and Happy.

In his visions Willy often sees his elder brother Ben, who at the age of 17 left home and by 20 got rich in the diamond mines of Africa. For Willy his brother is the living embodiment of the American dream. Willy wants his sons to have success in life too. But Biff, who was a good student at school and a star of the football team, at some point of his life for some strange suddenly wilted and now at 40 he always changes jobs and is far from reaching any success.

The origins of such a sad state of affairs are in the past. Biff was always told by his father that he would achieve success, because he was very charming. But one day he got a low score in mathematics and did not receive a certificate. In despair he rushed to his father in a nearby town and found him it a room with a woman. It was the time when the world for Biff got ruined. His father was an ideal for him, but it turned out that he always lied.

Biff wanted to return his previous job, but his boss didn’t even recognize him. Biff was about to meet with his father and his brother to tell them about is new job, but he was not hired. He tells the truth to his brother and says he would say it to his dad. But Happy tries to persuade Biff to lie.

Happy didn’t reach much in his life either and while he proudly calls himself a deputy boss, in fact, he is only an assistant of one of the assistants. Happy seems to be repeating the fate of his father – building castles in the air, hoping that optimism and smile would lead to wealth.

For a while Biff manages to pretend to be a successful applicant to his father, but as usual, cheap optimism of the father and a set of standard phrases such as ‘the main thing in business is appearance and charm, do their job and he breaks down and tells the truth.

Willy gives him a slap. Biff runs out and Happy follows him. Willy decides to make a suicide. He wants to get into an accident without making it look like a suicide, so after his death his wife and sons could get 20 thousand dollars.
