The American Dream in Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller and The Piano Lesson by August Wilson

Both Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman and August Wilson’s The Piano Lesson weave father-son dynamics into their constructions of the American Dream. Interestingly, both plays feature sons who have lost their fathers, but the consequences of that loss are different. Write an essay in which you compare these two plays, taking into account the historical time period in which each play is set, the class and race of the characters, etc. How does Wilson, writing after Miller, confirm or re-write the American Dream?
