Death Of A Salesman
On one spring day four black widow spiders (two begin male and 2 begin female)
went up a tree in couples of the opposite sex. One couple was foreign to

America, the other was not. They were all at their sexual prime and to do a
mating ritual called sex. When the foreigners were done the male became very
tired and all he wanted to do was sleep, but the much larger female spider
flighty and talkative. She wanted to talk of their recent sexual experience, but
the male was far too tired and told her to shut-up. Like all women she became"emotionally scared" and in retaliation she killed her much smaller spouse.

Not exactly the June Cleaver type of spider is she? On the other side of the
tree lie the American Widows. The female does not feel that sexually active, but
she spreads her eight legs and submits herself in honour of her idea of a"greater male cause". The fact of the matter is that the American woman
never had the chance to fulfill their mission (which is inborn in all of man) to
prosper in life, but they cannot do this seeing that they are confined in the
kitchen, busy doing the dishes and saying ". . .yes dear. Would you like
another beer?" The role of the American woman (which was to look after the man
of the house and the house itself) is vividly exemplified through Linda Loman in

Arthur Millers Death Of A Salesman. Of course Arthur knows all about the role of
women in American society, how do you think his dishes got done when he was
writing this play. Before we start to delve in the juicy core of this essay,
let’s get one thing straight. An aggressive and eager woman makes a powerful
difference in the evolution of society. Take Lady Macbeth from William

Shakspere’s Macbeth. She did wonders for both Scotland and Macbeth. It’s
really ashame that he’s own people decapitated him at the end of the play.

Look at Eve from the Bible in the book of Genius. Good old Adam couldn’t
screwed it up for the rest of mankind without Eve’s guiding hand. And look at
the Mrs. Ramsay from Robertson Davies Fifth Business. Without her, poor Dunny
probably wouldn’t have joined the army and he would still had his leg that he
lost in the war. On a more serious note, women have been deprived to excell in
such things as politics for example. I believe the world would be a better place
if the women were running it. Oh ya, there would be no war, the estragon of a
woman would take care of that, well, except when there PMS-ing or the older ones
are having hot flashes. But there is a way around that problem. If the women
organized it so there would be at least five to six female Presidents and the
one that’s in power that’s PMS-ing would resign and go have visits intern -

Monty Lewinsky while another President takes over. Furthermore there would be no
world famine, except when the women are pregnant and there "emotional
session" with Richard Simmons is over and he is out of there sight. It is
indeed a fact that if the American Woman were to be treated equal to men (as
they should be) I definitely believe that the world or America at least would
have been a better place to live in, for the women would be the missing gap in
most American situations that spaned outside the kitchen. Although they are not
perfect like Lady Macbeth, Eve, and Mrs. Ramsay either are us men. Linda Loman
from Death Of A Salesman is one of those women that would have been an excellent
as asset to her family and others around her. She was disheartened housewife
which fulfilled all the tasks of the usual American housewife - that which is
central to accomplish the "American Dream"(which was a family with a
financially success for a father figure, a caring wife that is responsible for
cooking, cleaning, support, sex whenever the man demands it, children minimum of
two which are of the opposite sex, a nice house, a nice car and of course that
white picket fence.) To follow Linda’s example as she lives her life is to be
considered to most Americans a prime example to go by. She is loving, caring,
understanding and will do or say anything for her hubby - Willy Loman. If ever

Linda gets "out of line", Willy
