Essay: Father son conflict in the “Death of the Sales Man
Death of a Salesman is a dramatic version of human society that portrays many phases of a human life. The story revolves around a salesman Willy Loman who spends his entire life as a salesman.
Willy is of the idea that being well known is the key to success whereas on the other hand his son Biff was a high school business student who contradicted his father’s ideas and apprehensions. The basic conflict over identity begins with dishonesty and undue explanations of Willy to his sons that he is an effective personality and the truly required England man, but the truth was vice a versa (Miller, 1949).
