From the Publisher
'Given Miller's importance … the appearance of this companion is likely to be considered a welcome addition to the range of general books on the playwright.' Darryll Grantley, Theatre Research International

' … well-focused and incisive … thought-provoking and will be invaluable to students. Overall [this is a] welcome addition to library bookshelves.' New Theatre Quarterly

'Common to all essays is an obvious admiration and respect for the man and his art. Another commonality , and also delight, is the frequent quoting of Arthur Miller himself … ' The Australia Jewish News
