The New York Times has assembled a page dedicated to Arthur Miller. The page has links to Times articles by and about Miller as well as reviews of his plays, beginning with a review of his failed Broadway debut in 1944 (“The Man Who Had All the Luck”) through last year’s second take on Marilyn Monroe (“Finishing the Picture”).
The proposition that “attention must be paid” was the epitaph Miller provided Willy Loman. The epitaph has become a cliche that Jacob Weisberg seized on in his 1999 review/essay on the Broadway revival of “Death of a Salesman”: “Attention must not be paid: Please don’t make me see Death of a Salesman again.” It provides a good counterweight to the Times homage.
