Hey, I am revising for Death of a Salesman at the moment, our teacher has dropped hints that there will be a very good question for it in my prelim tomorrow- here are some of the sites I used if anyone wants:
http://www.homework-online.com/doas/index.asp
http://www.sparknotes.com/lit/salesman/
http://www.revision-notes.co.uk/revision/16.html
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_of_a_Salesman

Anyone who has read this, do you think Willy Loman is a tragic hero?

^Is Willy Loman a tragic hero?

Yes and no. The first time I read it I felt he was - and in this sense he is a tragic hero. But under the Shakespearean / Greek type of 'Tragic Hero' he would not be one as he is not of noble birth.

So yes in the tragic sense, no in the literary sense. Does that help? Probablly not so don't answer that one!

I still think he is a tragic hero- he is responsible for his own downfal- he began at a higher level than he finished and he worked for his family.

By the way, to contrast with most people on here, I actualy think the plays quite good. Its not completely action packed but it gives some good viewpoints from which we can analyse our modern western society. I think a lot of people are bieng too harsh. smile.gif

Yes! We done a second prelim and I got 20/25 for my ''Death of A Salesman'' essay. I strongly think it had something to do with the notes offered here, so thank you! wink.gif

It was about the breakdown of family values. I just talked about Willy's relationship with the other family members, explained the causes of conflicts. Very chuffed. biggrin.gif

Yeah thats the trouble with English, you haven't got a clue what will come up. The best thing you can do is prepare and know your texts well. Also, you can try and do past papers under exam conditions to familiarise yourself with the situation. After that, its a waiting game.
