Yesterday the world lost Arthur Miller. However, he will live on in our memories for his great plays, especially Death of a salesman (1949), which is today seen as one of the major achievements of modern American theatre.
I remember when my friends and I first saw the play enacted in Calcutta, we hotly debated Willy Loman's act. Was it cowardice or a true sacrifice? We never reached a consensus. Can anyone ever know?
