Arthur Miller.

I thought Arthur Miller was already dead. You know, I just can't keep up with these American literary icons. Next someone will be telling me Norman Mailer is still important. Though I tell you what, I didn't know that Miller was married to Marilyn Monroe at one stage.

I just trivialised his whole body of work right there, didn't I?

I knew he was alive and had married Marilyn Monroe and even though some :-p may not like The Crucible and Death of a Salesman, the man stood up to Joseph McCarthy at a time when it was not prudent to do so. So methinks he deserves his iconic status.

oh, i'm sure he deserves his status in the states. over here, however, he's not of much interest to me, which was kind of the point of the post. (that and to make fun of every news article that said, and he was married to marilyn monroe.)

He's not of much interest here, either, I don't think. It's unfortunate. (Not him dying at 89 but people not knowing what he did/what he wrote.)
