More than any other playwright working today, Arthur Miller has dedicated himself to the investigation of the moral plight of the white American working class. With a sense of realism and a strong ear for the American vernacular, Miller has created characters whose voices are an important part of the American landscape. His insight into the psychology of desperation and his ability to create stories that express the deepest meanings of struggle, have made him one of the most highly regarded and widely performed American playwrights. In his eighty-fifth year, Miller remains an active and important part of American theater.

Miller's plays have become American classics that continue to speak to new generations of audiences.  Death of a Salesman has had numerous screen adaptations, including a 1985 TV version that starred Dustin Hoffman , who also starred in the previous year's Broadway revival. In 1996, a film adaptation of The Crucible hit theaters, starring  Winona Ryder ,  Joan Allen  and Day-Lewis. Miller penned the screenplay, which earned him the sole Academy Award nomination of his career.
