Please complete the following questions about ACT ONE of Death of a Salesman . 1. The stage notes at the beginning of Act One of Death of a Salesman read: 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 in the forestage; the surrounding area shows an angry glow of orange. As more lights appear, we see a solid vault of apartment houses around the small, fragile-seeming home. An air of the dream clings to the place, a dream rising out of reality. What mood or tone does Miller evoke with this description of the setting? What emotions or ideas does the juxtaposition of the apartment buildings and the house evoke? What might this setting tell us about the family who lives in the “small, fragile-seeming” house? This setting gives off a sense of one good thing being in he middle of something bad, or a dream in the mist of reality. a small home in the mist of the city. They are out of place and mabe a little inacente or set in the old ways. 2.
