“Miller based his works on American history, his own life, and his observations of the American scene. Though uniquely American, they simultaneously were universal stories about an individual’s strugg;e with his society, his family, and especially, himself. Miller’s characters suffer from anxiety, depression, and guilt, and it was the genius of Miller to portray their pain and sorrow realistically, creating works that were familiar, yet uncanny in their power to move an audience. Miller’s stature is based on his refusal to avoid moral and social issues in his writing, even when the personal cost was terrible.”
