After the Fall: Bringing the Dramatic Imagination to Judgment Questions from Joe Keller and Willie Loman Is Chris Keller completely idealistic in accusing Joe and establishing a relationship with Kate a contract inside the house? What does Chris have to gain from the death of his father? Why has Chris demanded an act of violence inside the house? Can it be described as an act of fragging (act of friendly fire) from the battlefield? Is it residual violence and renamed it as an act of justice? When Kate says that Larry can’t be dead because if he is I’ll kill myself, Larry cant be dead bc if he is, you’ve killed him is said in front of Chris Chris screams at father bc he claims to put family first but in his mind it is Joe’s fault and does this drive Joe to commit suicide Did Chris benefit from Joe’s death? Ann’s letter complicates bc her inside information allows her to see and hear misrepresentations and lies without calling anyone out o She has a secret that doesn’t come out until last day US History timepiece Post WWII with New Deal and very powerful pushback and welfare structure With Russians as opposition, New Deal progressive liberals were described as communist sympathizers, incipient communism o Trade unions, federal theaters project (Miller was part of it), socialist discussions, etc. As Arthur Miller is writing a high ground morality drama, Miller’s All My Sons also produces a scapegoat for transformation consistent with public drama of the time (the blacklisted) Ilia Kazam gave list of names of those involved with “communist” activities (McCarthyism) o Miller disconnects with him and states he did was Joe did in All My Sons After the Fall
