Produktbeschreibung
Arthur Miller's play A View from the Bridge is a tragic masterpiece of the inexorable unravelling of a man, set in a close-knit Italian-American community in 1950s New York. Eddie Carbone is a longshoreman and a straightforward man, with a strong sense of decency and of honour. For Eddie, it's a privilege to take in his wife's cousins, Marco and Rodolpho, straight off the boat from Italy. But, as his niece Catherine begins to fall for one of them, it's clear that it's not just, as Eddie claims, that he's too strange, too sissy, too careless for her, but that something bigger, deeper is wrong - and wrong inside Eddie, in a way he can't face. Something which threatens the happiness of their whole family. This Penguin Classics edition includes an introduction by the author and a new foreword by actor Philip Seymour Hoffman.

Autorenporträt
Arthur Miller, geb. 1915 in New York, verbrachte seine Kindheit in Brooklyn und Harlem. Er studierte Publizistik, Anglistik, Literatur- und Theaterwissenschaften. Der große Börsenkrach und die anschließende Weltwirtschaftskrise, deren soziale Auswirkungen er in den 30er Jahren u.a. als Hafen- und Landarbeiter direkt zu spüren bekam, sind Schlüsselerlebnisse für sein Leben und Schreiben. Die Verarbeitung des Themas in 'Death of a Salesman' bringt ihm 1949 Weltruhm. Er erhielt u.a. 1949 den Pulitzerpreis, 2002 den Prinz-von-Asturien-Preis und 2003 den Jerusalem-Preis. 2005 verstarb Arthur Miller.
