  1. We will be exploring this pay with reference to the chapter on Set Design and use your text book when thinking about these points

    1) This play is a rich mix of realism and non-realism. Referring to the script illustrate this by using 2 examples for Each

    2) How does this approach help to take the audience into the world of Willy Loman?
    (Note: refer to both his literal social-eco world and his inner world
    3) Looking at Conventions of Dramatic Structure, comment on how Arthur Miller has used Space and Time in this play.
    4) Revived on Broadway right now, this modern-tragedy was hit all over again. Is it still relevant today? If so how/why?

    *****i need to answer these questions I got some down but need help i have been really backed up and dealing with shit and this is small but important and thanks guys
  2. I definitely can't help you, but if you add more context about wtf this is about, maybe someone else can lol
  3. #1 There is realism as the circumstance of American life is shown with a detail that could make some uncomfortable. There is also a lot of detail showing the neighborhoods and apartment building. There is a lack of realism as Willy too often goes into daydreams thinking and imagining. Willy lives in his head sometimes and has conversations almost with himself.

    “I saw the things that I love in this world. The work and the food and the time to sit and smoke. And I looked at the pen and I thought, what the hell am I grabbing this for? Why am I trying to become what I don’t want to be . . . when all I want is out there, waiting for me the minute I say I know who I am.”
  4. You're right, it is important. That's why you should do it yourself.
  5. #2 This approach helps because people can relate to being introspective and thoughtful. Willy Loman has some of the same faults that all people are guilty of, just at a dramatic scale, which makes it a good story.
    #3 Arthur Miller has used space and time to take our reader out of the doldrums of a normal persons life and apartment. Since a lot of what happens is self-consideration and dreaming it has no necessary time and could take us almost in any direction. The flashbacks make the reader consider a different level of space that can be challenging to follow. We don’t know what will be next.
    #4 I think it is relevant but only conceptually. Life is different now, and more complicated in its own way. While a normal person can never have the experiences like Willy did in the play we can identify with the emotion, resolve and sincere-ness that comes across. No one wants to have his or her ego bruised, and no one wants to be betrayed. These themes are timeless.
