Collected Plays 1987-2004
With Stage and Radio Plays of the 1930s & 40sBook - 2015
For Arthur Miller's centennial year, The Library of America and editor Tony Kushner present the final volume in the definitive collected edition of the essential American dramatist . Here are eleven masterful, haunting, funny, and provocative later plays, from the double-bill Danger: Memory (1987) to Finishing the Picture (2004), Miller's final stage work, based loosely on events around the filming of The Misfits , in 1960, with Marilyn Monroe. In between, Miller revisits the perennially rich themes that define his work--the vagaries of fate and chance, the press of public events on private lives--with such plays as The Ride Down Mt. Morgan , The Last Yankee , Broken Glass , Mr. Peters' Connections , and Resurrection Blues . Also presented in the volume are the early play The Golden Years , about the conquest of Mexico, which Miller revised for its first production in 1987; several shorter one-act plays and never-before-published early works and radio plays; and a selection of Miller's incisive prose reflections on his art, among them "On Screenwriting and Language" and "About Theatre Language."
