Pressestimmen'Bigsby's epic study is readable, comprehensive and profound. It's not a beginner's guide, and plot summaries rapidly give way to in-depth discussion, with brief biographical links rounding off each chapter. Given the massive task, the evidence of haste in some of the writing is excusable. This book is clearly a must not only for Miller fans, but for anyone wanting to know about the post-war struggles of the engaged artist - committed both to accounting for his life, and bearing witness to history.' The Independent '... wide-ranging, indispensable study ... an in-depth account of everything Miller has written, including the voluminous variants of his work, his private papers and worknotes to which Bigsby has had access ...'. Jewish Chronicle 'A text of extraordinary thoroughness and insight. (it) is likely to remain the most sustained and penetrating examination of Miller's work for a long time to come.' Theatre History Studies '... comprehensive and very thorough.' Contemporary Review 'While there is no shortage of books about Arthur Miller out there, this new study by Christopher Bigsby is surely one of the best and most valuable to date.' MLR
