The Great 20th Century American Dream Play


1955 paperback edition, flatsigned by Arthur Miller (received today–full moon Valentine’s Day 2014). The modern play I  taught in English 30 (gr. 12), most years going back to my student teaching round in 1971-72. Most recently, the late Phillip Seymour Hoffman starred as Willy and got good reviews. The 2012 Citadel production of this play was the best I’ve ever seen with a strong Linda. Students used to enjoy reading this one aloud despite its datedness. Many powerful scenes and significant quotations. I have found many of Miller’s ideas from his essays and interviews still speak to our times and common human problems. He was quite the thinker and intellectual. Very honest, always truthful.
