Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I think it is one of the best plays I ever read.
But it is also one of the most terrible in the sense that it is a nightmare. I felt trapped while reading it. The characters desperate hopes, their self-denial and their lack of communication with each other...it really got under my skin.
It truly still reflects the pressure of society put on the individual to be better and brighter and richer and more beautiful and whatever else than one actually is. And the result of that pressure.
