“Willy has always wanted to seize victory from the world and
to claim the kingdom of self, to be a somebody – which is both
the promise and the imperative of American individualism.”
– John Lahr,
“Lives in Limbo,” describing
Philip Seymour Hoffman’s portrayal
of Willy Loman in Death of a Salesman,
p. 96, The New Yorker, March 26, 2012
Sing on, Willy…
That’s right. Sing on,
you posing little weasel.
