Of course it s not the same as attending a play, it is however,a good way to brush up on a play or specific bit of dialogue. I think Miller is much better when he is focusing on the shining moments that can be found in the lives of absolutely ordinary people than when he tries to take on things ofimport Of the pieces I d read before, I loved Death of a Salesmanthan the first time and disliked The Crucible eventhan the first time Of the two plays I hadn t read, I got muchinterested in The Price than Incident at Vichy though I even liked that better than The Crucible Miller can r I think Miller is much better when he is focusing on the shining moments that can be found in the lives of absolutely ordinary people than when he tries to take on things ofimport Of the pieces I d read before, I loved Death of a Salesmanthan the first time and disliked The Crucible eventhan the first time Of the two plays I hadn t read, I got muchinterested in The Price than Incident at Vichy though I even liked that better than The Crucible Miller can really work magic, but I guess it is important not to think about that magic so much when making it Arthur Miller was a Michigan man, class of 38, who gave us some powerful plays I saw Broken Glass in NYC 1994, included in this collection But, after plowing through Death of a Salesman and The Crucible, I think I m done with heavy stuff like this for a while Time for fishing or football or something. Includes Death of a Salesman and The Crucible, as well as a smattering of lesser known works Incident at Vichy is a neat companion of sorts to Miller s teleplay Playing for Time, and The Price is an absorbing study of self deception and potential squandered The remaining bits are less compelling than the four plays, but help to round out this concise portrait of Miller s work. I only read Death of a Salesman but I enjoyed it and it had that Catcher in the Rye feel. I just can t bring myself to be an Arthur Miller fan, I think that s all there is to it. Good portable Miller Anthology.
