Miller Links

If you need to contact someone about the rights to perform Miller’s plays go to Patrick Herold at United Talent Agency. In addition, within the US, licenses for most of Miller’s plays can be requested through the Dramatists Play Service, and if you are outside of the US often the place from where you get the scripts deals with such licensing, such as Concord Theatricals. For literary permissions, contact Sarah Chalfant of The Wylie Agency, 17 Bedford Square, London WC1B 3JA, who is Miller’s literary agent. t: 00 44 20 7908 5900 / f: 00 44 20 7908 5901.

  • A great media presentation now available on YouTube, by Stefani Koorey, titled “Because it is my name!” Arthur Miller’s Moral Imperative, The Crucible and Miller’s HUAC Testimony,” that discusses The Crucible, and Miller’s involvement at the time with both HUAC and Marilyn Monroe. Great background for discussion of the play.
  • The Miller Archives at the Harry Ransom Center in Austin, Texas. Contact Cline Curator of Theatre and Performing Arts Eric Joseph Colleary with any questions or for more information. Miller began placing his papers at the Harry Ransom Center in the early 1960s. Over the years, he placed additional material on deposit, they bought additional papers that were still held by the Miller family after his death. They spent two-years cataloging this 200+ box collection. A fully indexed finding aid is on the website:, and most of the collection is open for research (some personal writings will not be accessible until 2029). The Center welcomes scholars and artists interested in Miller’s work. No advance application is necessary, and no appointment will be needed to access the papers. To assist in travel to the Ransom Center in Austin, Texas, they even offer a number of research fellowships.

Some links to various articles and a video on the Arthur Miller Archive at the Harry Ransom Center in TX:

  • None Without Sin: Arthur Miller, Elia Kazan and the Blacklist is the 1999 documentary directed by Michael Epstein for American Masters about the turbulent 1950s, when artists were made to choose their position. It was the era of blacklisting and at the center of it were Kazan and Miller and the act of testifying before the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC). Their decisions, when they respectively came to it, would ultimately color their careers and define their lives for many years to come. The documentary (just under two hours long) can now be viewed on YouTube:
  • Just over an hour long, this conversation between Arthur Miller and Christopher Bigsby, was a collaboration between 92Y’s Unterberg Poetry Center and The Paris Review, and was recorded live at 92Y on January 4, 1999. The full interview ran in The Paris Review as The Art of Theater, No. 2, Part 2, in the fall of 1999. An interesting piece in which Miller discusses many of his later plays, from The Price through to Mr. Peters’ Connections.

  • Article by Anna Rahmanan that deliberates on Monroe’s conversion to Judaism: “Monroe’s conversion made Jews feel more secure about their standing in the world, especially after the Holocaust, Robotham said. “It just showed that Judaism, coming off of the war, wasn’t something people were trying to hide,” she told The New York Times. “They were really celebrating Jewish culture and identity.” Lila Corwin Berman, author of Speaking of Jews Rabbis, Intellectuals, and the Creation of an American Public Identity, agreed, writing, “Marilyn Monroe’s short-lived marriage to Arthur Miller issued a public and celebrated challenge to Jewish sociological distinctiveness. . . . If a person who seemed so clearly not Jewish — from her appearance to her family history to her place in American popular culture — could become a Jew, then the sociological assumptions about Jewishness were in jeopardy of unraveling,” she added (145). Not everyone celebrated Monroe’s conversion, though. Egypt responded by placing a ban on all of her movies. In 1961, after the couple divorced, the Middle Eastern country lifted the ban and invited Monroe to perform there, but she declined.
  • Interesting interview article with Agnes Barley for the Sunday Times by Ariel Leve from 2011 titled “Landscapes of Love from Miller’s Last Muse.”

  • Great article by Bonnie Costello that promotes a recent production of Kimberly Belflower’s John Proctor is the Villain by Huntington Theatre, but also offers some interesting history of a 1962 extended version of The Crucible with which Miller was engaged back in 1962 with Boston University.
  • “Arthur Miller Scandalous Truth. What He Did to Marilyn Monroe?” is the provocative headline of what is actually a fairly anodyne biographical video (just 9.30) on Miller recently put on YouTube by RARE history. It has a few facts wrong such as saying his mother was a school teacher (and a rather doubtful photograph of his graduation—is this really him?) but it has lots of cool pictures (though often rather misleading and anachronistic—such as one of him and Inge while relating his time at Michigan—and then pics of Miller with other guys [including Kazan] when later talking about how Rowe mentored him!). They actually titled the video “Arthur Miller: 10 Shocking Facts You Never Knew”—which only seems applicable if you’ve never heard of him before. Only a couple of the 10 deal with Marilyn and those basically tell us that Miller was very supportive of Marilyn in their time together and tried to help her become a more serious and respected actress, then swiftly moves on to a segment telling us about Miller’s humorous side—which somehow consists of his mother making a joke about Monroe pissing like a racehorse! Then it notes how much more of a productive relationship he had with his next wife, Inge Morath. So not sure where the scandal comes in… perhaps in #10 and the segment on Daniel? For me this section is a scandalous but only due to its odd selection of pictures while telling us about Miller’s fourth child. It begins with a picture of Miller with baby Rebecca in his lap, then pictures an actor who played Daniel in a play about this part of Miller’s life as if it was of Daniel himself, then has a still of a pensive John Huston on the set of Misfits, then a laughing Miller and Inge as the narrative notes they put Daniel in a home! [then another pic of Miller with baby Rebecca, and one of Miller in a car that Inge took for her “masks” book].

  • Link to a site that considers the meaning of the name “Biff” that is quite intriguing! “Biff is a male name with English origin. It is believed to have emerged in the late 19th century as a nickname for the name Biffo, which is a colloquial term used in the UK to describe someone who is a bit of a bully or roughneck.” Apparently it also has a German equivalent: Artur! Picture above depicts a collection of Biff’s through the ages from US, UK and China.

  • In April of 2004 Arthur Miller, a loyal alumnus, made the last of many visits to the University of Michigan. Students had prepared a performance of scenes from his plays for the occasion, and Miller visited a rehearsal and spoke with them about their work. He conferred with administrators about plans to build the Arthur Miller Theatre which when completed opened with a production of Playing for Time. During his visit Mark Lamos, who had directed Miller’s work in the past (and performed in the premier of Creation of the World), hosted a symposium for the author while he was on campus. The transcript was published in the Michigan Quarterly Review 46.1 (Winter 2007).

Miller loved Greenwich Village, and the Art was where anybody and everyone would go — there were no A tables, and Igor would make you a gigantic sandwich. He used to let me make my own behind the counter. Dustin Hoffman lived right around the corner, and after he did Midnight Cowboy, he still went to the deli because Igor was so nice to him. Whenever he had an interview, he’d take them there, so Igor would have more customers.”  Also a link to a YouTube page that has four versions of David Amram performing “Waltz in D Minor,” the music that he composed for After the Fall

    James Whitmore as Lawrence Newman in Focus
  • Focus LINK SADLY NO LONGER WORKS–if you know where this can be accessed again, please let us know. Here you used to be able to view the 1962 NBC television version of Miller’s 1945 book, Focus, with James Whitmore and Colleen Dewhurst. Miller did not write this strangely mangled production–but an interesting adaptation nonetheless. It certainly makes the 2001 movie version seem almost faithful, despite its altered ending.
  • Old Time radio: You can listen to Orson Welles in Miller’s radio drama Thunder from the Hills. A thirty minute treat in which Welles appears to be reading all the parts.
  • Links and lessons.  A fairly comprehensive selection of other links here to sites that have Miller biography, and specific materials on Death of a Salesman, The Crucible, All My Sons, and A View from the Bridge—many of these contain useful lesson plan material—especially the All My Sons study guide for GCSE level (that would be grade 8-10 in the US).  I’m putting a link to this one on our lesson plans page too. They keep adding, and now have a separate page for all of the material they have gathered on The Crucible.
  • Miller Archives:  University of Delaware library Special Collections Department. Richard Hoffman-Brooklyn theater collector and book dealer, built the Arthur Miller Collection over a period of fifty years.  Contains play scripts, screenplays, photographs, correspondence, financial documents, posters, flyers, periodicals, journals, theater programs, news clippings, and ephemera. The collection is open for research, and you can check out a list of their holdings on-line.
  • Probably the largest collection of Miller materials can be found at the Harry Ransom Center, at the University of Texas at Austin. Materials are still being cataloged (hope is to complete by Nov. 2019), but the extensive archive contains early sketches, notes, and draft versions for most of his plays, including Death of a Salesman, The Crucible, The View from the Bridge, After the Fall, and The Archbishop’s Ceiling. Also present are essays about the craft of playwriting, thought to be the closest thing to a complete ‘Poetics’ yet written by an American playwright. Radio scripts, numerous versions of his “cinema novel” The Misfits, interviews, speeches, articles, correspondence files, and scrapbooks are here as well.
  • “The Death of Arthur Miller,” at “Song a Week” where you can hear a song written by Tom Flannery to commemorate Miller’s passing.
  • NPR’s On Point: Death of a Playwright, aired the evening following Miller’s death on Feb. 11th 2005. Harold Bloom, Marsha Norman, Jack Beattie and Sue Abbotson discuss Miller’s legacy. The site keeps changing how you find the show, but it is there in the archives.
  • A link to the BBC archives where one can hear the writer’s voice when he was around 26 years of age. 
  • General Info  Charles A. Carpenter has put together an excellent resource here which gives you a descriptive chronology of Miller’s plays, theatrical career, and dramatic theories , and good starter bibliographies for both primary and secondary sources.  Elsewhere, the site also offers an historic overview of Western theater which allows you see where Miller comes in that timeline and development.1999salesmansite
  • Death of a Salesman This is the Eugene O’Neill Theater’s site that offers a wealth of material about Death of a Salesman to go with their 1999 production of the play. Along with information on the O’Neill production, with biographies of the cast and creative team, you can access reviews of this production and key past productions, a variety of information on Miller, and study guide materials. You can even order tickets and souvenirs. On Miller they offer a fairly detailed chronology, brief bio. and bibliography of major critical works, and the script of Matthew Roudané’s 1985 interview with the playwright. Under “study guide” you can access fairly lengthy excerpts of various books and articles relating to Death of a Salesman by Miller and other scholars. Study guides for students and teachers, and transcripts of on-line chats with Miller and Brian Dennehy. All told, one of the most useful sites on Miller currently on the web.
  • Salesman Concordances  SADLY NO LONGER WORKS–if you know where this can be accessed again, please let us know. Did you know the name Willy is spoken 128 times in the play, but Linda only 22?  This was a database with all of the acting dialogue (N.B. none of the stage directions etc.) from Death of a Salesman in a full concordance format in which every word is indexed and connected to its textual context. You could view alphabetical word lists, frequency of words, and the text of the acting dialogue. A little confusing at first to navigate, but an interesting research tool once you get the hang of it.
  • General Miller Info.  This site offers a very brief five-paragraph biography by Malcolm Goldstein. A very basic introduction–doesn’t even mention half the plays and is especially sketchy on recent years. The bibliography lists the obvious, and less than half of the links actually work. Of those that do, the most useful is the one to the Internet Movie Database, which gives production details of a number of TV and film projects at home and abroad, along with some fun trivia. Others include audio files of clips from The Crucible, a review of a 1995 theater production of The Crucible, a sketchy interview that appeared on Mr. Showbiz, and a 1988 New York Times article by Richard Bernstein on Kazan and Miller.
  • Curtain Up. Curtain Up offers an interesting site which is easy to navigate.  It gives some basic background to Miller, and a list of his “trademarks” but, most importantly, a whole collection of reviews of recent productions of Miller’s plays in New York and Williamstown, MA and they keep adding.  A useful study tool.salem
  • The Crucible  Historian Margo Burns tries to separate the fact from the fiction in Miller’s play, pointing out historical details which differ from Miller’s artistic recreation of events.  This is part of an historical site with an interest in 17th century colonist New England. Burns lists historical inaccuracies in The Crucible, and points to resources where these details can be confirmed. She ends by asking some interesting questions regarding how inaccurate historical recreations (often created in the name of art) might impact the historical awareness of the reader/viewer.
  • Basic background from Spartacus Educational on Miller and his best known works from the UK, aimed at Secondary/High School students.
  • Reference Guide from Perspectives in American Literature (PAL). Offers links to pages on Miller and Kazan, and America in the 1950s. Also a brief list of main primary works (up to 1994), and a very selected bibliography, with a couple of study questions. Maybe useful as a first step for high schoolers.
