His plays and his conscience are a cold burning force.
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.
[Death of a Salesman] was our story that we did not know until we heard it.
Arthur Miller is a playwright for all seasons and all nations.
"The greatest playwright of the 20th Century."
"Writing meant, for him, an effort to locate in the human species a counterforce to the randomness of victimisation."
"He was so honest and a man of rare integrity in his writing."
"Arthur was the last of the three great theatrical voices of the American century - O'Neill, Williams, Miller."
"[Miller] has looked with compassion into the hearts of some ordinary Americans and quietly transferred their hope and anguish to the theatre."
