Prompt In a close reading, analyze Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman for examples of how Willy Loman displays one traditionally masculine trait. Focus your analysis on act one of the play. For a list of traditionally masculine traits, see Holly Devor’s “Becoming Members of Society: Learning the Social Meanings of Gender,” pars. 19-22. Directions Begin your paragraph by introducing the author, Arthur Miller, and the title of his play, Death of a Salesman. Remember: when performing literary analysis, make no reference to the author of the play (Miller) because he is not a character in the play. Also, when quoting a play, the only place wherein to put the playwright’s name is the parenthetical citation, e.g., (Miller 31; act 1). Additionally, when you summarize/describe characters’ actions in your signal phrase, make sure to write these actions in the “literary present” (i.e., using simple present-tense verbs). From Miller’s play, quote and analyze two passages. Be sure to follow the rules of MLA format.
