Death of A Salesman
There are many reasons why DOAS is so popular among people and why it is the greatest piece of drama ever. One of the reasons is because anyone can relate to the story. The parts people can relate to are the normal everyday parts not everyone is in a war and is in love with someone on the other side but everyone get depression from work and sometimes feels overwhelmed with life\'s problems.
When the salesman cheats on his wife his son stops loving his dad. Cheating happens all the time in relationships and has devastating effects on children.
The lies that he makes are wrong but in a sense good to his family and this relates to many in the work force because I can remember my dad telling me when he was laid back that they offered him a better position for more money and that everything would be alright, even though he knew nothing of the sort had happened and he was just lying to give everyone hope for the future.
The brother who haunts him is another everyday thing that people can relate to because everyone has had that opportunity that if they took it they wouldn’t be in the position that they are in. For example if I would have been at my friend\'s house when I was supposed to come over I could have met Michael Jordan.
How many times have people been let down by their fathers, by their mothers by anyone in their family. Many times have I been let down my dad and when I saw biff let down by his dad cheating I was reminded of all the time my dad let me down.
When he got the money from his brother he wouldn\'t take it due to his pride but he knew he needed it so he took it while his pride was hurt. How many times have people asked for loans from banks they told they didn’t need their money from.
The main reason is that this is a play everyone can relate to because I’ve had people cheat on me. I’ve had people lie to me and that is what connects this play to its popularity, the fact that this could happen to anyone.

Politcal Allegory Term Paper Of 1984- By OrwellPolitcal Allegory Term Paper Of 1984- By Orwell The Political allegory of George Orwell\'s 1984 In 1984, by George Orwell, the reader sees a primary theme of political allegory and satire. Orwell is presenting the world of 1984 as a satiric statement of what might come to pass, though of course its exact form could never be predicted, if the world did not become aware of the terrible problems facing it, not in 1984, but here and now. Orwell wrote the novel not as a prediction, but as a warning.

At the first olympics in Athens in 1896, marathon runners drank a mixture of brandy and strychnine to help them on their ways and used opiates to control pain during a race. Use of alcohol was very common in the early years of the twentieth century. It might be argued that the first athletes to use drugs to enhance their performance were, in fact, cheating.
