"To be, or not to be, that is the question" (3.1).
"They all want to play Hamlet" by Carl Sandburg
They all want to play Hamlet.
They have not exactly seen their fathers killed
Nor their mothers in a frame-up to kill,
Nor an Ophelia lying with dust gagging the heart,
Not exactly the spinning circles of singing golden spiders,
Not exactly this have they got at nor the meaning of flowers--O flowers, flowers slung by a dancing girl--in the saddest play the inkfish, Shakespeare ever wrote;
Death of a Salesman
This is the third tragedy for our study in the genre. It is one of our modern era and a drama that has been played professionally hundreds of times since it was written. We will focus primarily on closely analyzing Act I of Death of a Salesman as a mode of AP Exam Preparation. Comparisons will also be made to Oedipus the King because of the similarities between Willy Loman and Oedipus regarding their tragic flaws, or hamartia.
