Review:

"[In Arthur Miller's plays] we find the true compassion and catharsis that are as essential to our society as water and fire and babies and air. . . . 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 his characters and the greatness of their creator."
-Philip Seymour Hoffman, from the Foreword

About the Author:

Arthur Miller was born in New York City in 1915 and studied at the University of Michigan. His plays include All My Sons (1947), Death of a Salesman (1949), The Crucible (1953), A View from the Bridge and A Memory of Two Mondays (1955), After the Fall (1963), Incident at Vichy (1964), The Price (1968), The Creation of the World and Other Business (1972) and The American Clock. He has also written two novels, Focus (1945), and The Misfits, which was filmed in 1960, and the text for In Russia (1969), Chinese Encounters (1979), and In the Country (1977), three books of photographs by his wife, Inge Morath. More recent works include a memoir, Timebends (1987), and the plays The Ride Down Mt. Morgan (1991), The Last Yankee (1993), Broken Glass (1993), which won the Olivier Award for Best Play of the London Season, and Mr. Peter's Connections (1998). His latest book is On Politics and the Art of Acting. Miller was granted with the 2001 Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters. He has twice won the New York Drama Critics Circle Award, and in 1949 he was awarded the Pulitzer Prize.

Book Description Penguin Publishing Group, United States, 1987. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reissue. 193 x 127 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. America s greatest playwright weaves a vivid, crackling, idiomatic psychosexual horror tale. --Frank Rich, The New York Times Winner of the 2016 Tony Awards for Best Revival of a Play and Best Direction of a Play: Ivo van Hove. In A View from the Bridge Arthur Miller explores the intersection between one man s self-delusion and the brutal trajectory of fate. Eddie Carbone is a Brooklyn longshoreman, a hard-working man whose life has been soothingly predictable. He hasn t counted on the arrival of two of his wife s relatives, illegal immigrants from Italy; nor has he recognized his true feelings for his beautiful niece, Catherine. And in due course, what Eddie doesn t know--about her, about life, about his own heart--will have devastating consequences. The play has moments of intense power. . . . Miller plays on the audience with the skill of a master. --Clive Barnes, New York Post. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780140481358
