"Death of a Salesman" Act I

Once again, I think this play is still so entertaining is because of its relatability. It's about an average family with a father trying the best he knows how to fulfill his dreams. Not every audience member or reader will understand everything going through Willy's mind, but I think generally many families have been through similar situations. For instance, when Biff discovers his father's affair; many children look up to their parents and place them on the proverbial pedestal, but when the children eventually discover their parents are not perfect and are simply human, they must reevaluate thoughts and feelings about "reality."
