    1. Some say this play has no plot but they are just missing it. It is the story of a young man passing through a world that is like a trap. It is a trap that he is able to escape only because he lives with his mother. He receives 15 dollars a week and is able to save 11 of it so that he can go to college. The only other person to escape is Gus, but it is not the way most would like to escape. It is a memory. Many think of it as realism like Chekov, but it is actually expressionism because it is an [...]


    2. SPOILERS:All right, I'm going to give away stuff here. I think I'm the only person who's ever going to write about what happens in this one-act play. It was written in 1955 or so. It's clearly about Arthur Miller's time working in an auto-parts place just before going off to college. It takes place in New York City just after Hitler has become Chancellor of Germany. Not only do we learn at the start of the play that he's just "taken over Germany," but we learn that most of the people who work th [...]


    3. Most of Arthur miller’s plays such as “A View from the Bridge”, “The Crucible”, “All My Sons”, “Death of a Salesman” etc. are categorized as modern tragedies; the struggles of the everyday man; social American tragedies, focusing on the dark side of the American dream. “All my Sons” is a classic play, about guilt, responsibility, and the relationship between fathers and sons in the aftermath of a World War II corruption case, when two brothers come together to dispose of th [...]


    4. I have recently been reading Arthur millers work and have to say this particular one for me is the best work he has written. I believe this is so underrated and not gave the props it deserves. maybe I have a strong connection within the story that Arthur's trying to tell and show, I can relate to this play 100% and that feel of sadness that Bert has when he leaves he doesn't say it's all written in the subtexts. It's a memory which indicates already that everyone and the workplace was close to b [...]


    5. موظفون في مخزن بيع قطع سيارات يعيشون يومي اثنين عاديين مع القارئ الشخصيات متنوعة وليس فيهم بطلفيهم الشاب المفعم بالحياة والباحث عن مستقبل افضلفيهم اللامبالي وفيهم الحكيم وصاحب الراي وفيهم الصارم والقيادي ولكن ما الرابط المشترك بينهم؟انه ذلك المخزن هو رمز لحياتنا ورتابتها [...]


    6. This is a play set in a auto parts warehouse in the time of the depression and Hitler's rise. Miller does not explicitly take on any social issues in this play so there isn't a "message" underlying everything. Rather it is a slice of life of a group of workers who have to be in each other's life not by choice but because they are working together.


    7. Although it is just one act it seems very underrated and exceptionally poignant in these times of economic struggles. Great dialogue, memorable characters and a theme that continues to strike home half seventy years later.


    8. Very haunting in a depressing sort of way Seems like it should be deleted scenes of Tom and Jim's life in the warehouse from Tennessee Williams "The Glass Menagerie", which lent it a strange out of place feel.
