  4. 4. TRAGEDY AND THE COMMON MAN • “As a general rule, to which there may be exceptions unknown to me, I think the tragic feeling is evoked in us when we are in the presence of a character who is ready to lay down his life, if need be, to secure one thing-his sense of personal dignity.” – Arthur Miller
  5. 5. MUSIC • Flute Theme: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7aSZ0DZo5FQ • What does the music make you feel? Is it an appropriate theme? • Arthur Miller: “It is small and fine, telling of grass and trees and the horizon.”
  6. 6. SET DESIGN “Before us is the Salesman’s house. We are aware of towering, angular shapes behind it, surrounding it on all sides. Only the blue light of the sky falls upon the house and forestage; the surrounding area shows an angry glow of orange…. The entire setting is wholly, or in some places, partially transparent.”
