Review:

"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
