When thinking about a stereotypical All American family what comes to mind is a father who goes everyday into an office wearing a suit and a wife who stays at home with the kids until they are off to school However in this day and age most women have regular everyday jobs just like the father of the family This is contrary to the way it was back in the 1940s where the mom would stay at home and cook and clean until the father returned from work In Death of a Salesman Linda is the stay at home wife that portrays the typical 1940s family structure The play Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller portrays the Loman family in such a way that shows the reader the differences of family structures from today to the 1940sEvery family no matter what time period needs income and money to supply for the family In the 40s the father is the one who would wake up early and put his suit on and go off to work for the day in an office building This is shown in Willy Loman in the play because he goes every morning and goes to the office as a salesman in order to provide for his family Today this is still true and for the most part accurate the only difference is now there are so many more jobs in which can help one become successful so some of the most successful people do not work in an office building but out in another field In both instances the father is still held responsible for working in order to provide for the family In a conversation between Linda and Willy Linda says Youre sixty years old they cant expect you to keep travelling every week Miller 2 This quote really shows how Willy the father wants to work and is totally willing to work as much and for as long
