About the Book:

In this collection of Arthur Miller's plays, editor Tony Kusher gathers the works from the 1940s and 1950s that electrified theatergoers and established Arthur Miller as one of the indispensable voices of the postwar era. Among the plays included are All My Sons, the story of an industrialist confronted with his moral lapses during World War II; Death of a Salesman, the wrenching tragedy of Willy Loman's demise; The Crucible, at once a riveting reconstruction of the Salem witch trials and a parable of McCarthyism; and A View from the Bridge, Arthur Miller's tale of betrayal among Italian immigrants in Brooklyn, presented here in both the original one-act and revised two-act versions.

This volume also contains the intriguing early drama The Man Who Had All the Luck, the first of Arthur Miller's plays to be produced on Broadway, along with his adaptation of Ibsen's An Enemy of the People, the autobiographical one-act A Memory of Two Mondays, and Arthur Miller's novella The Misfits, based on the screenplay he wrote for Marilyn Monroe.

What people say:

"Miller takes his rightful place in The Library of America with this volume containing Death of a Salesman, The Crucible, A View from the Bridge, All My Sons, The Man Who Had All the Luck, An Enemy of the People, A Memory of Two Mondays, and The Misfits." — Library Journal

About the Authors:

Arthur Miller (1915-2005) is considered one of the great American playwrights. During the Depression, finances were scarce and he paid for his college tuition by working as a shipping clerk in a New York factory. He later wrote his first plays in college. With a career that spanned over 50 years, he wrote more than thirty plays that transformed American Theatre and proved to be both the conscience and redemption of the times. His probing dramas received many awards in his lifetime, including two Emmy awards and three Tony Awards for his plays, a Tony Award for Lifetime Achievement, and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1949, for Death of a Salesman.

Tony Kushner is one of America's most acclaimed playwrights. He has won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, two Tony Awards for Best Play, two Obie Awards, and two Drama Desk Awards.
