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.

Rezensionen
Here we find the true compassion and catharsis that are as essential to our society as water and fire and babies and air. I remember walking and running and jumping out of the theater after seeing Death of a Salesman, like a child in the morning, because Miller awakened in me the taste for all that must be the empathy and love for the least of us, out of which bursts a gratitude for the poetry of these characters and the greatness of their creator.
Philip Seymour Hoffman

His plays and his conscience are a cold burning force.
Edward Albee

You can usually tell if a writers loves actors or not by the parts he gives you. He gives you tap dances. He gives you arias.
Dustin Hoffman

[Death of a Salesman] was our story that we did not know until we heard it.
David Mamet

Arthur Miller is a playwright for all seasons and all nations.
Christopher Bigsby

"The greatest playwright of the 20th Century."
Vaclav Havel

"Writing meant, for him, an effort to locate in the human species a counterforce to the randomness of victimisation."
Salman Rushdie

"He was so honest and a man of rare integrity in his writing."
Harold Pinter

"Arthur was the last of the three great theatrical voices of the American century - O'Neill, Williams, Miller."
David Hare

"[Miller] has looked with compassion into the hearts of some ordinary Americans and quietly transferred their hope and anguish to the theatre."
Brooks Atkinson
