    This volume contains four of the most important and famous plays of the American theatre. All five plays were written by Arthur Miller within a ten-year period which began with his first Broadway hit in 1947:

    'With the production of All My Sons, wrote Brooks Atkinson in the New York Times, 'the theatre has acquired a genuine new talent.

    'This hit was followed by an even greater play: Death of a Salesman, which has gone on to become the classic American tragedy of Willy Loman, a salesman who becomes disillusioned with the American dream.

    The Crucible (1953) was produced during the McCarthy era and became a parable of the witch-hunting practises of a government rooting out Communists.

    A View from the Bridge (1955) concerns the lives of longshoremen in the Brooklyn waterfront and has remained one of Miller's most produced plays.

    A Memory of Two Mondays, a one-act play, was written as a companion piece to A View from the Bridge.

    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 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' (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, which was televised with Vanessa Redgrave and won an Emmy award.

    Plays: 3 contains three of Miller's great stage plays from the late seventies and early eighties.

    The American Clock is a study of the effects of The Great Depression on American society and the values which helped it survive.

    The Archbishop's Ceiling, set in a former Archbishop's palace in an Eastern European capital, examines the relationship between four writers, and the erosion of personal integrity in East and West. With the threat of the secret police having bugged the room, the play provides a thrilling study of the effects of surveillance and political pressure on an individual's actions. Produced by the RSC at the Barbican in 1986, it was described as a 'gripping, thrilling play... the best of the RSC's current excellent season' (Sunday Times).

    A revised version of Two-Way Mirror, a double bill for a man and a woman, consisting of two short plays - Elegy for a Lady and Some Kind of Love Story - completes the volume.

    Arthur Miller's two early plays, The Golden Years, a historical tragedy about Montezuma's destruction at the hands of Cortez, and The Man Who Had All the Luck, a fable about human freedom and individual responsibility, are brought together in this volume.

    It also features two of his contemporary shorter plays, I Can't Remember Anything and Clara, first presented on a double bill as Danger! Memory. The latter focus on the importance and dangers of remembering the past, while the early plays, written at the time of the Second World War, mark the emergence of a drama in which public issues are rooted in private anxieties and chart the beginning of Miller's career that was one of the most distinguished in dramatic history.

    First produced in 1944 and revived in London in 2008, The Man Who Had All the Luck is a mesmerising drama in which the author's brilliance and characteristic qualities are already evident: 'Listen to the dialogue: no other American dramatist has this feel for the ordinary talk of ordinary people, or the knowledge of what they do. This is more than a writer's craft, it is a psychological and moral openness to humanity, an act not of imitating, but of sharing' (Sunday Times).

    This fifth volume of Arthur Miller's work contains two plays from the early nineties: his highly acclaimed The Last Yankee (1993), 'a fine and moving play... Like all Miller's best work, it effortlessly links private and public worlds by connecting personal desperation to insane American values' (Guardian); and The Ride Down Mount Morgan. (1991), which explores themes of bigamy and betrayal, 'searching, scorching, harsh but compassionate' (Sunday Times).

    Also contained in the volume is Almost Everybody Wins, the original version of the screenplay Arthur Miller wrote for Karel Reisz's film, Everybody Wins.

    Miller Plays: 6 is the final volume in Methuen Drama's acclaimed series of work by Arthur Miller.

    Featuring two plays from the 1990s and his final two plays (2002 and 2004), it is the first ever publication of his final play Finishing the Picture. Inspired by his experience during the filming of The Misfits with his then wife Marilyn Monroe, the play was completed and produced at the Goodman Theatre, Chicago, just months before Miller's death in February 2005.

    Broken Glass (1994) is set in Brooklyn in 1938 and intertwines a woman's obsession with the news from Germany that government thugs are smashing Jewish stores, with her strange relationship with her husband.

    Mr Peter's Connections (1998) is an unforgettable journey through one man's mind at a time of suspended consciousness where the living and dead intermingle in memory.

    Resurrection Blues is Miller's astonishing black comedy set in a South American banana republic.

    The volume also includes a chronology of the author's work and an introduction by Enoch Brater, professor of English Literature at the University of Michigan.
