How to cite this page

There are hardly any traveling salesmen now, and yet we are almost all Willy Loman. We remember the home run we hit to win the big game in high school, when in fact we rode the bench at P. We imagine that our diligence and smarts have put us on the partner track, when in our heart of hearts we know we will eventually work for an insurance company as assistant in-house counsel. We puff up our past and our present in order to imagine a glorious future just around the corner, when in fact it is not even around the world. Willy is us writ large, which is why Death of a Salesman remains as fresh and relevant as anything from Guirgis or Gunderson despite its grounding in the now-distant past. Willy is a legend in his own mind; and his children, following his example and his teachings, are legends in their own minds too. America is a nation of salesmen, and the thing we sell most persistently is ourselves.
