Arthur Miller: 1915 – 2005

From The Nature Of Tragedy…

“When I show you why a man does what he does, I may do so melodramatically; but when I show you why he almost did not do it, I am making drama.”

“Tragedy arises when we are in the presence of a man who has missed accomplishing his joy. But the joy must be there, the promise of the right way of life must be there.”

“…to take up a sad story and discover the hope that may lie buried in it…”

“…[tragedy] is the most perfect means we have of showing us who and what we are, and what we must be—or should strive to become.”
