More About the Author

Arthur Miller (1915-2005) was born in New York City in 1915 and studied at the University of Michigan. During his lifetime he was celebrated as the pre-eminent playwright of his generation and won numerous awards for his work including two New York Drama Critics' Circle Awards, two Emmy awards and three Tony Awards for his plays, as well as a Tony Award for Lifetime Achievement. His 1949 play Death of a Salesman was the first play to scoop all three major US awards: the New York Critics Circle Award, a Tony Award for Best Author and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. His many plays include All My Sons, Death of a Salesman, The Crucible, A View from the Bridge, A Memory of Two Mondays, After the Fall, Incident at Vichy, The Price, The Creation of the World and Other Business, and The American Clock; later plays include Broken Glass, Resurrection Blues and the aptly-titled Finishing the Picture. His other published work includes the novel Focus, The Misfits which was filmed in 1960, two collections of short stories, the memoir Timebends and various volumes of non-fiction including three books in collaboration with his wife, photographer Inge Morath.

Product Description

Review

'His strongest play for many years, a gripping and at times powerfully affecting drama [which] balances private lives with public morality...It is also an amazingly full-blooded piece, bursting with pain and passion' Daily Telegraph --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Despite this book being advertised as 'perfect for students', it contains little more analysis than a brief explanation of certain, often obvious terms at the bottom of each page. This more closely resembles a simple list of specific vocabulary than a 'comprehensive guide'. The 'extensive introduction' by Alan Ackerman that supposedly contains 'a summary of the plot and commentary on the characters, themes, language, context and production history of the play' is genuinely a page and a half long, with a largely irrelevant summary of Arthur Miller's career taking up one whole page of said 'extensive introduction'.

I can only assume that this description is in fact of an entirely different book, as this is by no means an 'expertly edited edition'. As this edition is of German origin I would guess that the analysis of vocabulary is instead for those with a less wide ranging grasp of English who may need otherwise to refer to a dictionary in order to understand certain phrases. There is nothing inherently wrong with this edition of Broken Glass, but don't buy it expecting anything other than the play with a few explanations of terms as footnotes. This is in no way the student's guide it is advertised as.

I do enjoy Arthur Miller's plays and academic writing. He was one of the great US dramatists without doubt, but his later work (of which this is a fine example) is just a little less enjoyable when compared to the likes of his early plays, outstanding being The Crucible, Death of a Salesman, All My Sons and A View from the Bridge. But for sure, if you enjoy these plays, you will enjoy reading this one - the chances of ever being able to watch it on stage seem slim, sadly.

I wish I had read the reviews before clicking the 'go to checkout' button. If I had I would have known that the description of this product is not accurate. There are NO notes on plot, character or themes. No analysis whatsoever. There are definitions of some words at the bottom of each page and so this 'guide' might be of use to a foreign student of English language, but aside from that this product is not particularly useful to students.

I read Death of a Salesman years ago and really loved it. This play, although not as masterful as his earlier play, really shows his scope as a playwrite as you see him explore the 'living room drama' type style adopted in plays such as 'Look Back in Anger' to make a social commentary on Jewish American living during the war. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone!

A late Miller play which addresses the issues of political responsibility and anti semitism. It builds a tense atmosphere andsustains it until the end.
