What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“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
