Synopsis

This second volume of Arthur Miller's plays contains four stage plays from the sixties and seventies, taking up the theme of individual responsibility from his earlier work. The volume is introduced by the author. The Price (1968) is 'a beautifully intelligent play about two brothers who are pinned in positions of flight from their own histories that are as fruitless as the movements of the men at Pompeii...For Miller, heroism lies on the scale of a man's sense of the possibility of controlling his own life' (Observer). After the Fall (1964) is 'about how we - nations and individuals - destroy ourselves by denying that this is precisely what we are doing'. (Guardian) Incident at Vichy (1964) is 'a short but intense drama of Occupied France...a kind of suspense thriller with moral overtones, continuously absorbing' (New York Post). The Creation of the World and Other Business is based on the Biblical account and was Miller's first Broadway comedy, premiering in 1972. Also included are two of his screenplays: The Misfits, written for and filmed with Marilyn Monroe, and Playing for Time, televised with Vanessa Redgrave, and which won an Emmy award.

Customer Reviews

I've loved every page of this book. Of course, Miller is one of the greatest playwrights, but one should be aware that this is only volume 2 in a collection of six. Therefore, some of his best plays are not here (like, for example, 'Death of a Salesman', 'The Crucible', 'All My Sons'...). But 'Incident at Vichy' or 'The Price' are also among my favourites. In fact, I don't think I've ever read a play of his that I haven't liked (and I've read most of them).
