    Excellent read

    This play is a perfect example of what a playwright should strive for. Miller illustrates everyting in such a way that makes you not want to stop reading until you're done. Clearly structured and has an unbelievable climax. I'd call it an extremely sophisticated soap opera.

    Absolutely Wonderful

    A View From the Bridge by Arthur Miller, is the story of Eddie Carbone, a seemingly normal Brooklyn man, who works unloading ships, and lives with his wife, Beatrice, and his orphaned niece, Catherine. It is obvious from the start of this play that Eddie and Catherine have a very strong relationship, as though she was really his daughter. Or so it seems... When Beatrice's cousins from Italy illegally immigrate to America, they stay with Eddie and his family. Their names are Marco and Rodolpho. Marco is happily married with three children, and sends all of the money he makes to his children and wife in Italy. Rodolpho is unmarried and soon falls in love with Catherine, as she falls in love with him. Eddie soon becomes more and more jealous of Rodolpho, because his love for Catherine is more than just a father/daughter love, it is a sexual kind of love. Eddie eve tries to convince himself that Rodolpho is gay because he can cook, sew, and sing. With a climax beyond belief, and an ending that will leave you shocked, and both glad and sad, Arthur Miller wrote an absolutely wonderful play.

    A Great Disappointment

    I had high hopes for this play. When I read the description of it, it sounded like something I would really enjoy. But when I was finished reading it, I didn't feel the same emotional satisfaction I experienced after reading All My Sons. This was definately not his best, or even close to it. Right now I'm reading Death of a Salesman in school, and in the few short pages that I have read, it was 10 times better than A View From The Bridge.
