Essay from the year 2006 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 10 (A), University of Bucharest (Faculty of Foreign Languages and Literatures), course: English Literature, 6 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: My paper deals with the exploration of the American dream for a wealthy, comfortable and successful life and the failure in achieving it, as reflected in the Requiem of Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman, taking into account the traits of Social Realism that the play meets. In this respect, Willy Loman represents the archetype of man obsessed with material gains and madly engaged in a pursuit for success, but who eventually ends up tragically, as a victim of his own delusions of grandeur.
