Having gone to an American high school, I, too, was taught to revere the work of the great American workingman's playwright, Arthur Miller, who recently passed away. Death of A Salesman is as much a part of the high school curriculum as The Catcher In the Rye or Lord Of The Flies.

Yet Canadian blogger Colby Cosh nails it on the head:

"When I think about the man who wrote plays about how capitalism thwarts human aspirations, and then got married to Marilyn Monroe, I'm afraid about all I can do is giggle."
