Although separated by almost 3

Although separated by almost 3,000 years of literature, there are plays that can still tie in together by containing similar elements and characteristics. In this case, Oedipus The king by Sophocles and its counterpart Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller have some similarities. When thinking about both stories, one might question, how are the two stories related; one is about a king who killed his father without consent of who he was but later discovers the truth and the other is about a salesman who has attempted suicide a few times because he was a failure. Looking deeper into both stories, the two characters are related not only because of their prideful personalities but also because of their arrogance and failure to accept the truth, which eventually led to their downfalls.
