Death of a Salesman
By Arthur Miller

This is a clip from the movie Death of a Salesman where Biff and Willy get into an argument.


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.

The rubber hose is a symbol throughout the book when portraying Willy.

This is was a very interesting book to me because I thought it portrayed the American Dream very well throughout the entirety of the book. I would definitely recommend this book to anybody. I would also recommend watching the play if you have the chance to.
