  • Death Of Salesman - 2,563 words
    Death Of Salesman Arthur Miller is one of the most renowned and important American playwrights to ever live. His works include, among others, The Crucible and A View from the Bridge. The plays he has written have been criticized for many things, but have been praised for much more, including his magical development of the characters and how his plays provide "good theater". In his plays, Miller rarely says anything about his home life, but there are at least some autobiographical"hints" in his plays. Arthur Miller is most noted for his continuing efforts to devise suitable new ways to express new and different themes. His play Death of a Salesman, a modern tragedy, follows along these lines. ...

    Our Town By Thornton Wilder 1. Thornton Wilder was one of the most cosmopolitan and sophisticated of American writers.

    Our Town Christian Ward 1/8/2000 What is the definition of a small town? Is it where everyone knows your name, like the theme song of Cheers, or is it where everyone cares about each other and knows what's going on in town. Grover's Corner fits the definition of the classic small town back in the early twentieth century. Our Town by Thornton Wilder shows that this small town is very close in manor and growth to Asheville, North Carolina. Grover's Corners as imagined today would have everything in common with Asheville. It would consist of one rather large shopping mall. This is where all the local teenagers spend their free time, even with the lack of money to spend. The fact that some stude ...

    Penny Brewer English 6 Our Town The play Our Town was written by Thornton Wilder in 1938. This play was a huge part of Wilders success. I believe his purpose for this play is to show us the simple things in life we often overlook. The play is to show you how important it is to have love in your life, plus the meaning and beauty of it all. The story takes place in Grovers Corners, New Hampshire, over a twelve-year span. The characters in the play go about as if it truly were a scripted play. There is no excitement or adventure. I think that Wilders purpose for that was to show the importance of finding value in even the smallest events in our lives. Act I is called "The Daily Life." This act ...
