American playwright Miller dies

American playwright Miller dies

Arthur Miller was one of the most influential playwrights of his time

Miller died on Thursday evening, having battled with cancer, pneumonia and a
heart condition.

He was one of the most significant American writers of the 20th Century,
whose fame was further magnified by his short-lived marriage to Marilyn
His play The Crucible was inspired by the hysteria of the McCarthy witch
hunts which he became embroiled in.
'Rare integrity'

"Mr Miller passed away at his home in Roxbury, Connecticut, last night at
9.17pm of heart failure," said Julia Bolus, the playwright's assistant.
He was also a highly dignified and an extraordinarily formidable man, an
independent man

British playwright Harold Pinter said he was a "wonderful chap" and he was
"absolutely flabbergasted" at the news of his death.
"He was a great playwright and a great man - and a great friend of mine," he
said. "His plays are among the finest works that have been produced in the
20th Century," Pinter told BBC News 24.
"But he was also a highly dignified and an extraordinarily formidable man,
an independent man. He was so honest and a man of rare integrity in his

Miller and Monroe had a short-lived marriage
New York-born Miller was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Death of a Salesman
in 1949 at the age of just 33.
Although already considered one of the foremost literary giants of his era
he was catapulted into the pop culture sphere following his marriage to
actress Monroe. The tempestuous marriage lasted just five years.

Miller found himself caught up in McCarthy anti-communist witch hunts.
When he testified in front of a congressional committee in 1956 he refused
to reveal any names and so was held in contempt. The decision was overturned
two years later. The trials inspired The Crucible, set during the Salem
trials of the 1690s which led to suspected witches being killed amid mass
hysteria. Among Miller's other plays were A View from the Bridge and later
works were The Ride Down Mount Morgan and The Last Yankee. The main
character in Death of a Salesman, Willy Loman, became a symbol of the
struggle of the "little man" to realise the American Dream. The play is
still widely performed today, while the TV movie version picked up numerous
awards for its star Dustin Hoffman.
