Together with over twenty questions for further study and detailed notes on words and phrases from the text, this is the definitive edition of the play. Set among Italian-Americans on the Brooklyn waterfront, A View from the Bridge is the story of longshoreman Eddie Carbone. When his wife's cousins arrive as illegal immigrants from Italy, he is honoured to take them into his house. But when his niece begins to fall in love with one of them Eddie grows increasingly suspicious, eventually precipitating his violation of the moral and cultural codes of his community and leading to the play's tragic finale. With its examination of the themes of sexuality, responsibility, betrayal and vengeance, the play is vintage Miller and a modern classic.

Ein bewegendes Familienepos und die Geschichte einer großen Liebe Die unsichtbare Brücke erzählt die ergreifende Geschichte der ungarisch-jüdischen Familie Lévi vor dem Hintergrund des Zweiten Weltkriegs. Paris und Budapest sind die Schauplätze dieses mitreißenden, lang erwarteten ersten Romans von Julie Orringer, in dessen Zentrum eine außergewöhnliche, immer wieder gefährdete Liebe steht.Budapest 1937. Voller Hoffnung besteigt der junge Andras Lévi den Zug nach Paris, um dort Architektur zu studieren – und entdeckt eine Stadt der Theater und der Kunst, der Studentenpartys und politischen Revolten. Als er die neun Jahre ältere Claire Morgenstern kennenlernt, beginnt eine leidenschaftliche Amour fou, die überschattet wird von einem dunklen Geheimnis aus der Vergangenheit der Ballettlehrerin. Es ist der Beginn einer großen, immer wieder Prüfungen unterworfenen Liebe. Auch Tibor und Mátyás, Andras’ Brüder, versuchen in dieser bedrohten Zeit ihr Glück zu finden. Als der Krieg die Brüder Lévi in Budapest zusammenführt, ist das keine Heimkehr, sondern der Beginn einer Odyssee mit ungewissem Ende: Ein Kampf ums Überleben beginnt – gegen Hunger, Verfolgung und einen Schatten aus Claires früherem Leben, der trotz aller Bemühungen unüberwindbar zu sein scheint.In großartigen Bildern lässt Julie Orringer eine untergegangene Welt wiederauferstehen, schildert die prächtige Architektur und glanzvolle Bühnenkultur der beiden Metropolen vor Kriegsbeginn und führt uns mitten hinein in den Horror des Zweiten Weltkriegs, der trotz aller Brutalität die Bande zwischen Claire und Andras und seiner Familie nicht zerreißen kann.
Arthur Miller was one of the major American dramatists of the twentieth century, clearly ranking with other truly great American playwrights, including Eugene O’Neill, Tennessee Williams, and Edward Albee. The centennial of Miller’s birth in New York City on October 17, 1915 was celebrated around the world with a panoply of staged productions, theatrical events, media documentaries, and academic conferences. Miller earned his reputation during a career of more than seventy years, in which he achieved critical success in the 1940s and 1950s with the dramas All My Sons, Death of a Salesman, The Crucible and A View from the Bridge. He was also notable for his refusal to “name names at his appearance before the House Un-American Activities Committee”, his marriage to the film actress Marilyn Monroe, and his spell as president of the literary organization, International P.E.N. Arthur Miller was not only a literary giant, but also one of the more significant political, cultural, and social figures of his time. He was a man of conviction and integrity who frequently took stands, popular and unpopular, on the ethical issues that engaged societies throughout the world. This collection includes eclectic essays from Miller scholars who provide detailed discussions of text and performance, of Miller as a political and cultural figure, and of his connection to other playwrights. The contributions explore the trajectory of Miller’s career, his most famous and frequently produced works, such as Death of a Salesman and The Crucible, the dramas of his later career, and his fiction. The collection appeals to a broad American and international audience and a cross-section of readers, including undergraduates, graduates, emerging scholars, drama and theatre specialists, as well as theatre-goers who flock to revivals of Miller’s plays.
Examines Arthur Miller's life, his literary heritage, and eight works from "All my Sons" to "The Ride Down Mt. Morgan," discusses literary style, points of view, and setting, and offers analyses from different critical approaches.
