Dreams and Aspirations in Literature and Your Lives [“Death of a Salesman”]
Dreams and Aspirations in Literature and Your Lives [“Death of a Salesman”]

Description

In “Death of a Salesman,” Arthur Miller explores the concept of the American Dream. The characters in his play all seek to define and achieve “their” American Dream despite the many obstacles they face in life. More specifically, these are characters, obstacles, and dreams in the 1940’s and 50’s. How, then, have these dreams changed today? This Challenges asks you to contrast your dreams with those of Willy Loman from Death of a Salesman. You do not have to use Death of a Salesman as your referent. Many other novels and short stories have central characters that are defined by their dreams and aspirations. So, …dream then, dream now. And tell a story about it.
