HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ARTHUR MILLER !

”BETRAYAL IS THE ONLY TRUTH
THAT STICKS !”
ARTHUR MILLER.
American Playwright Arthur
Miller
Was Born This Day 17 October
In
1915 In New York.
A Product of The Great
Depression
Era, Arthur Miller , Through His
Plays, Kept Questioning The
Prevalent Mode of Captalist
Society
And The Demeaning Features of
Modernity !
An Open Critic of The Anti-
Communist Wave of The United
States Government During The
Early Period of Cold War Era,
Miller
Came Up With His Second Most
Popular Play, THE CRUCIBLE
Wherein
He Drew An Analogy of Sorts
Between The Then Ongoing
Anti-
Communist Policy Of The
Government That Saw A
Repressive
Attitude Towards One n All Who
Were Sympathizing With
Communism n Its Votaries With
That Of A Witch Hunt In Salem
In
Earlier Era!
The Play Saw Miller Gaining An
Instant Celebrity Status And Its
Consequential Persecution by
The
Government. . .(Luckily Miller
Escaped The Punishment).
Master of Impressionism Plus
Realism, Miller Wrote His Most
Read , Critically Acclaimed And A
Must In College Syllabi
Worldwide,
DEATH OF A SALESMAN.
The Play Is Technically Held As A
Model For Modern Realistic
Playwriting And A Fine
Flagbearer
of The Tradition of Ibsen-often
held as the father of modern
drama!
A Poten Critic of The Myth of
American Dream, Miller Never
Felt
Shy of Pointing Out The
Hollowness
of This Dream And The
Resultant
Collective Frustration Amongst
The
Generations of 50s n 60s !
Married To The Hollywood Sex
Symbol, Marilyn Monroe, For
6yrs ,
Miller Had Had A Fondness For
Scriptwriting Too.After The End
of
This Turbulent Relationship,
Miller
Penned A Beautiful Play Titled
AFTER THE FALL !
Family Relationship Was a
Recurring Theme In His Plays.
ALL MY SONS and A VIEW FROM
THE
BRIDGE are His Other Enduring
Plays.
Miller Remains A Powerful
Influence Even Today As His
Concerns Are As Relevant Today
As
During His Time.
He Would Have Been 98 Today !
A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO
ARTHUR MILLER !
