Death of a Salesman Penguin Plays

Penguin Books - The pulitzer prize-winning tragedy of a salesman’s deferred American dream Ever since it was first performed in 1949, Death of a Salesman has been recognized as a milestone of the American theater.

By common consent, this is one of the finest dramas in the whole range of the American theater.
