Iscussion Board # 10: What part does making a living play in making a life? A comparison of Death of a Salesman and Top Girls
QUESTION: Willy and Marlene are the main characters of these two plays. Willy is in effect being Down-sized.Marlene is being promoted over a man. Both are probably defined by their jobs more than their private lives. Compare the quality of their private lives from the perspective of someone from an academic discipline, say an historian (i.e., looking at the times), a sociologist (roles, societal expectations, etc) or a psychologist (an analytical look at individual motivation or depression brought about by the circumstances, for example). You may also use any other discipline you choose (economics?). But the perspective MUST be that of a discipline whether your own major or another. Quotations are not necessary, but you may certainly use them. You may repeat a discipline but your take on it must be uniquely your own. If it sounds like a previous posting I will delete it and ask you to re-post. Be sure you tell us WHY that perspective thinks that way. It is not enough to say, a sociologist would think Marlene and Willy are playing the role of…. without saying why a sociologist thinks that way.

( do not make mistake like what the last writer did with my paper and this is the Email from my Professor
I deleted your post for the 9th forum. I said in my explanation that I made that quotation (I hate computers) up. There is no such quotation in Death of a Salesman. It is becoming rather obvious that you are not reading these plays. You must re-post with a quotation from the play. If not, your score on it will be a 0 until you make your replies. Also you cannot take information from a website about the other texts.) also ( You did not provide page numbers for your quotations so your grade on this forum is a 55. If you do not provide page numbers for the quotation that is required for the 7th discussion board, your grade on it will be a 0. Citations are necessary!)
so please do not do like what he did with me i got 0 in my paper
also ive attached for you the files to help you and guidelines
