From the Paper:

"Any work that is as much a landmark as Arthur Miller's "The Death of a Salesman" is bound to have its critics. This paper will present a variety of statements made by critics including M.W. Steinberg, Tom F. Driver, Robert Warshow, Gerald Weales, Richard Gilman, and Edward Murray, as their criticism is presented in books and periodicals of literary criticism. The paper will examine their criticisms and show how some of them present Miller as a revolutionary playwright, adding a new depth to the figure of the tragic hero, while other critics view "The Death of a Salesman" as being unable to resolve the issues it raised."
