Heard an interview with Philip Seymour Hoffman this morning, and he said something right at the end that could be dismissed as trite. But I keep replaying it in my head, and that’s normally enough for me to bring it here and see what comes into my brain, and then onto the page.
They were talking about Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman, and Mr Hoffman said that essentially this is what the play (and life by extension) was about. About everyone, ‘Wanting to be loved.’
Really? A bit of a simplification, don’t you think?
I’m a bit hesitant on this one, but am certainly willing to be convinced.
