Death of a Salesman is certainly symbolic of the American Dream or rather the illusion of the American dream . THe American Dream seemed almost tangible to the middle class bent on achieving it. Two perfect kids (ideally one of each gender) a perfect home with a perfect domestic mother waiting for her husband to return home from his perfect high paying job. Willy Loman desperately wants this but the illusion of happiness is exactly that, and illusion.
