Summing Up Arthur Miller

The Weisenheimer quoted my post-show reaction in his review of A View From a Bridge: "There's no one better than Arthur Miller for portraying male inadequacy. But at least he kills them in the end." I realize that was a little harsh.

In the October 27 issue of the New Yorker, Hilton Als opens a review of All My Sons by noting Miller's "obsessive attempt to show the ways in which the American male can be shaped and ultimately deformed by the pernicious dream of success."

That's what I meant to say.

But your original is so much more succinct and...well...honest!
