Miller’s plays are American classics. An intellectual concerned about social issues, he generated discussion and debate with “All My Sons,” “Death of a Salesman,” and “The Crucible,” among others. His work was recognized with multiple awards, including Tonys, Emmys, and the Pulitzer. He also wrote novels and essays. Committed to social responsibility in his personal life, too, he was convicted of contempt for refusing to cooperate with the House Un-American Activities Committee.
