Arthur Miller Society Official Website

The official site of Miller academia. If you're looking for a bunch of Miller eggheads who will do your work for you, look somewhere else! "While sympathetic to students writing papers, we do not write those papers for you," the site says. As people similarly opposed to cheating, we back the Society up.

National Endowment for the Humanities

In 2001 the National Endowment for the Humanities asked Miller to give its annual Jefferson Lecture. In honor of the occasion, the organization compiled this site, which features essays in appreciation of Miller's career as well as the lecture itself.

PBS American Masters

PBS created this site as a companion to the excellent documentary "None Without Sin," which examines the responses of Miller and director Elia Kazan to McCarthyism. It is a great introduction to the HUAC phenomenon, despite the comments from disgruntled student visitors.

Professor Carpenter's List

Professor Charles A. Carpenter of Binghamton University has compiled this incredibly detailed timeline of Miller's life and career. For $20, he will email you a 125-page bibliography to what we assume is pretty much everything ever written by or about Arthur Miller.

Death of a Salesman

In 1999, director Robert Falls staged a revival of Death of a Salesman on Broadway, starring Brian Dennehy. The production was a huge success, and this website was created as a companion to the play. Its coolest feature is a compilation of reviews of every major Broadway production of Salesman from 1949 to 1999.

PEN

To get a sense of the political causes that inspired Miller most, take a look at the PEN website. The literary and human rights organization speaks out against censorship and on behalf of persecuted writers. The organization is as active today as it was when Miller was president in the 1960s.
