Publisher's Summary

Arthur Miller’s most famous play, Death of a Salesman, has become a key text in Western literature. This unusually powerful recording, made for radio in 1953, was directed by Elia Kazan who premiered the play. It features Thomas Mitchell and Arthur Kennedy as father and son.
Willy, a travelling salesman, based in New York, relentlessly chases material success. As the disappointing nature of his reality crowds in upon him, Willy and his family suffer the tragic cost of his delusions of greatness. A domestic tragedy, a cynical indictment of materialism and the American Dream, and a profoundly moving story of one man’s struggle to maintain his dignity in the face of continual adversity - Miller’s play is essential listening.

waiste of money

The audio does not follow the text word for word. So if you plan on reading along with the audio, forget it. It skips a bunch of lines.

It's great, but it's such a shame it's abridged.

Given how short the play is, I really wish this was unabridged. It's still very good though.

This audio book is extremely resonant. The voice acting was superb and the flute sounds played throughout were marvellous and gradually more heartbreaking. Although many lines were missed out, it was a very good listen. Sound quality wasnt amazing but nevertheless the story and the sheer emotion in which lines were delivered was extremely captivating and helped evoke immense tragedy. I cried.
