Arthur Miller (1915–2005) Miller was born to immigrant parents in New York City and was profoundly affected by his father’s struggles during the Depression. He worked to save enough money to attend the University of Michigan, where he began writing plays. Miller often wrote family dramas concerned with the American working class and the reality of the American Dream. He is most famous for Death of a Salesman, a tragedy of classical proportions based on an ordinary man. Miller won a Pulitzer Prize in 1949. In the early nineties several new Miller plays were produced reviving interest in his entire career.
