Abstract

This paper illustrates how the ‘common man’ is unable to live up to its ideals and clinch success in his pursuit of the hegemonic success that could assert his masculinity. The play All My Sons shows the contradicting feelings of aspiration and inability, self-deception, betrayal and guilt which Miller showcases a successful business man’s desperate struggle to cling on to success and the relative guilt he develops about the ways and means he resorted to attain it and also the emptiness of such an unethical accomplishment when he introspects.
