“Death of a Salesman” written by Arthur Miller who quickly placed the reader into the household of the Loman family. The Family contains the father Willy, his wife Linda, and their two boys Biff and Happy as they are trying to get by on minimal income in an increasingly growing city. Miller also introduces the what the streets of brooklyn looked and felt like during the 1950’s. Focusing closer on the neighbourhood surrounding the Loman family we learned that their small house is surrounded by high rise buildings and industrialized civilization. The streets were busy with men heading into work and women preparing the house for when their beloved husbands would be back home. Brooklyn was constantly filled with noise as the transport trucks run through the day and the bars and pubs run through the night. The rising population began to fill all of the new jobs available in the factories making a competitive job market. Throughout the play the reader can begin to learn more and more about the day and night life of Brooklyn, New York in the 50’s.
