Over the course of seven decades, Arthur Miller created some of the most memorable plays in American literature.

Miller was born and raised in Manhattan. His father was a wealthy businessman until the Great Depression. However, despite being faced with poverty, Miller made the best of his childhood. He was a very active young man, and he was in love with such sports as football and baseball. When he wasn’t playing outside, he enjoyed reading adventure stories.

He was also kept busy by his many boyhood jobs. He often worked alongside his father, giving a hand when necessary. During his spare time, he did some part-time jobs.

In 1934, Miller attended the University of Michigan, studying journalism. His first play, No Villain, received an award from his university. It was an impressive beginning for the young playwright. He had never studied plays or playwriting, and he wrote his script in just five days!

After graduation, he continued writing plays and dramas. During World War II, his writing career gradually became more successful. Death of a Salesman, his most famous work, was published in 1949. It earned him international recognition.

His other major works included All My Sons, A View from the Bridge and The Crucible.

During the 1950s, Arthur Miller became the most recognized playwright in the world. His popularity wasn’t simply because of his literary genius. In 1956, he married his second wife, Marilyn Monroe, a famous actress. People often wondered why the world’s most beautiful woman would marry such a homely writer.

He was a big man and a deeply American man. He was busy writing plays until he got sick. He has such a great life that you don’t feel sad for him.

Miller’s plays are among the finest works that have been produced in the 20th century. Miller has looked with compassion into the hearts of the ordinary Americans and quietly transferred their hope and sufferings to the theater.
