I've never read this play, but I know it's a popular choice at Higher. Please use this thread to discuss it, and share your knowledge.

I found these notes which might be of use.

Hi!

I'm studying DOAS along with Assisi and Visitng Hour.

I was wondering if anyone has got any practice essays on the Death Of A Salesman they could share??

Also, can someone post the most vital quotes (and the significance of them) for DOAS as I find the ones in the internet either irrelevant or just too long-winded.

Any form of help would be much appreciated.


Ally :D

I did Death of a Salesman for Higher English last year... and hated it. I did use it in my exam though, and I found this site helpful in my prep:

Pink Monkey Literature Notes

Hope this helps...

Yeah, I did a practise with the question 'How the author made my emotions change about one character (Willy)' or something like that ... I was quite pleased with that one, cos I spent ages on it ... you can see it if you want, BUT I'm not sure how to post it here/ send it to you ... it is, like three A4 pages long, heh, so if you tell me how to get it to you - its saved on Word - you can have it! (that goes for anyone else who wants it, lol!)

I quite liked this play, but I find it hard to remember quotes, any tips?

And, did any one else do 'The Outsider'? If you didn't, you're very lucky ... the most stupid book EVER ...!
LOL ... it's me again! *grabs ppl to stop them running away* Now just u stay and listen to me ... hehe!

Hi Quirkycat,

Thanks for the offer but I've finished Higher English now (sat the exam last year).

For remembering quotes, I just repeated them over and over in my head and they finally came to me.

Hey guys!

Last year for my revision, I made mind maps for the key themes of DOAS but didn't get round to finishing them (rolleyes.gif). I've uploaded the mind maps that I have done on to a site.

Download them here.
