Popis Arthur Miller gained fame and international recognition as the most prominent author of American tragic drama in the second half of the 20th Century. His plays such as All My Sons, Death of a Salesman and A View from the Bridge manifest a particular conception of the tragic genre for the present. Miller explained his approach to tragedy in an essay “Tragedy and the Common Man” that serves as a framework for an analysis of his plays. However, his views of the genre developed over time as he was forced to react to reviews and criticism. He amended his views of tragedy in various theoretical writing, critical studies of theatre, as well as interviews and autobiographical texts. My presentation will look at Miller primarily as a theorist of drama and theatre critic. It will discuss the development of his concept of tragedy based on his prolific non-dramatic writings, which are often neglected in drama studies. While presenting the concept of tragedy according to Miller from several vantage points, I will also disclose a fact of a personally tragic nature from Miller’s life, which has been recently disclosed to the public.
