About the Author

Arthur Miller was born in New York City in 1915. His first theatrical success occurred in 1947 with All My Sons, which earned him the Drama Critics Circle Award. In 1949, Death of a Salesman was given the Pulitzer Prize, the Drama Critics Circle Award and the Tony Award for Best Play. The Crucible won another Tony Award for Best Play four years later. His other plays include A View From the Bridge, After the Fall, Incident at Vichy, Broken Glass and Mr. Peters' Connections. In 2001, he received The National Book Foundation Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters Award.

Mr. Miller died on Feb. 10, 2005 at the age of 89.

From AudioFile

DEATH OF A SALESMAN (1949) succeeded as a brilliant modern tragedy that, in recent productions starring Dustin Hoffman and Brian Dennehy, has shown that it still commands the stage. Traveling salesman Willy Loman is on the verge of a nervous breakdown, eaten up with guilt and shame over his failures as provider and father. As he struggles with the present and flashes back to the past, we witness his desperate journey toward redemption. This simple, powerful production of 1965 reunites the original Willy, Lee J. Cobb, with Linda Loman, Mildred Dunnock, and features a young Hoffman. Confidently directed for audio by Broadway veteran Ulu Grosbard, the recording benefits from Miller's years of writing radio plays; it is easily followed. The action in THE CRUCIBLE is not nearly as clear. In fact, this 1972 production has numerous problematic elements, from amateurish technical details to uneven performances. But then, the script itself doesn't help much. A far lesser offering than SALESMAN, this account of the Salem witch trials enjoys more revivals than any other Miller play. Perhaps its popularity stems from its thinly disguised reference to the McCarthy hearings and the destructiveness of public hysteria. Robert Foxworth, now 60 and notably reviving his stage career after decades in television, makes for a virile and dynamic John Proctor, the flawed hero of the piece. But director John Berry has erred on the turgid side. Y.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine

This play is timeless. The problems, hopes and fears of a middle class hardworking man and his family resonates today. In addition, the cast with Lee J. Cobb, Mildred Natwick and Dustin Hoffman are the original cast from Broadway when the play first opened. Listen to this powerful play; it will stay with you for a long time.

Here we have two recordings from 35 and forty three years ago that play as fresh now as then.

I admit to finding The Crucible ever too grim and real to enter. Why watch this when we see it on the news every day? Cotton Mather travelling from Yale to torture and execute scared people who dared to dance, and to steal their farms under the cover of true faith; like a Yalie cheerleader invading Iraq as Opus Dei "a work of God" rather than the work of British Petroleum and Exxon. Thank God that's done with!

You might also experience (I cannot say enjoy) this at The Crucible and study it more deeply at The Crucible (Viking Critical Library), anywhere but Ignatius (OMG).

The main reason I purchased this set is for the 1965 Caedmon recording with, of course, Lee J. Cobb. Interesting here is Bernard as played by the pre-The Graduate Dustin Hoffman. Further interest lies in Hoffman's later interpretation of Willy Loman himself in Death of a Salesman/ Private Conversations, a much different reading than Cobb's but perhaps more real for our day, more tragic in a small man over-reaching, burned out.

Listening to Cobb in this recording is like hearing Scofield play Lear in Caedmon's King Lear, with moaning and mumbling and great bass authority.
