Tod eines Handlungsreisenden

(Death of a Salesman)

by Arthur Miller
He is losing his foothold, slowly but surely: Willy Loman, a travelling salesman for the past 36 years, seems to be running on empty. He can’t keep up in the business world. The innumerable car trips are a pain. His regular customers have moved or passed away. He is under more and more pressure to continue to fulfill financial and social expectations. His performance and success suddenly dwindle. His family is dominated by lies, speechlessness and a great love. In desperation, he flees into the worlds of memories and fantasies. He can’t face his own failure.
When Willy then finally loses his job, his entire existence is questioned. He is overcome by fear. The threat: a loss of prestige, family ruin, desperation and the inability to maintain a level of self-respect. Loman sees only one way out: suicide, planned as a car accident, in order to cash in on insurance money for the family.
Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman, which premiered in 1949, was directed by Elia Kazan and received numerous awards. It is the story of a loss of identity and social tragedy. Loman is a victim of the unconditional American dream of success and prosperity. “The show must go on”.


a picture (without a frame, unfinished at the edges): suburban street. Late fall. Rear view of a man with a short-legged gait, small hat brim, almost no neck, long coat, two suitcases in hand, heading towards a wall of fog (behind it, in it – who knows – a forest or maybe more suburban homes). He may be thinking of the various doorbells – he knows all of the them, yes, even the one with the BIGBEN – he always had to laugh then, that’s his brother’s name: Ben, BIGBEN, Ben, Ben, Ben... – and then certainly thinking of: which mask is actually your true face, or certainly of: damn wedding anniversary, or or or… YOU CAN BUY A DREAM OR TWO… or stand in the fog, the stage set for the life of the short-legged man and he hits his head on the sound of the refrigerator. Ouch! and he turns around, kind of like as though he had been tapped on the shoulder, but this time there really is no one there. No one there. Just like the little crack that sometimes opens up when he does his rounds between doorbell and doorbell, the door is held by the chain, and a child’s face appears and he looks down… HEY, LITTLE MAN, IS YOUR DAD HOME… this kind of door has been opening up again and again recently, and there really is no one in that little crack. Oh, this really is the end! This is death, he thinks. Or have I already cracked?! Set down the suitcase. Take off the hat, handkerchief takes the sweat off of his almost bald head, fold it, put it away, the thing needs to be washed. And then the red-haired woman, who is only wearing the seam of her stockings, which wraps around her body from there, klackklack the penny under her heels, a penny saved is a penny earned… YOU CAN BUY A DREAM OR TWO... and a kiss, yes a kiss on the old lips of the short-legged man. The dealer of nothing, the dream dealer, the service provider, Willy. Loman. Low man. Little man. Dead man.
