    Plays: 3 contains three of Miller's great stage plays from the late seventies and early eighties.

    The American Clock is a study of the effects of The Great Depression on American society and the values which helped it survive.

    The Archbishop's Ceiling, set in a former Archbishop's palace in an Eastern European capital, examines the relationship between four writers, and the erosion of personal integrity in East and West. With the threat of the secret police having bugged the room, the play provides a thrilling study of the effects of surveillance and political pressure on an individual's actions. Produced by the RSC at the Barbican in 1986, it was described as a 'gripping, thrilling play... the best of the RSC's current excellent season' (Sunday Times).

    A revised version of Two-Way Mirror, a double bill for a man and a woman, consisting of two short plays - Elegy for a Lady and Some Kind of Love Story - completes the volume.

    Arthur Miller's two early plays, The Golden Years, a historical tragedy about Montezuma's destruction at the hands of Cortez, and The Man Who Had All the Luck, a fable about human freedom and individual responsibility, are brought together in this volume.

    It also features two of his contemporary shorter plays, I Can't Remember Anything and Clara, first presented on a double bill as Danger! Memory. The latter focus on the importance and dangers of remembering the past, while the early plays, written at the time of the Second World War, mark the emergence of a drama in which public issues are rooted in private anxieties and chart the beginning of Miller's career that was one of the most distinguished in dramatic history.

    First produced in 1944 and revived in London in 2008, The Man Who Had All the Luck is a mesmerising drama in which the author's brilliance and characteristic qualities are already evident: 'Listen to the dialogue: no other American dramatist has this feel for the ordinary talk of ordinary people, or the knowledge of what they do. This is more than a writer's craft, it is a psychological and moral openness to humanity, an act not of imitating, but of sharing' (Sunday Times).

    This fifth volume of Arthur Miller's work contains two plays from the early nineties: his highly acclaimed The Last Yankee (1993), 'a fine and moving play... Like all Miller's best work, it effortlessly links private and public worlds by connecting personal desperation to insane American values' (Guardian); and The Ride Down Mount Morgan. (1991), which explores themes of bigamy and betrayal, 'searching, scorching, harsh but compassionate' (Sunday Times).

    Also contained in the volume is Almost Everybody Wins, the original version of the screenplay Arthur Miller wrote for Karel Reisz's film, Everybody Wins.

    Miller Plays: 6 is the final volume in Methuen Drama's acclaimed series of work by Arthur Miller.

    Featuring two plays from the 1990s and his final two plays (2002 and 2004), it is the first ever publication of his final play Finishing the Picture. Inspired by his experience during the filming of The Misfits with his then wife Marilyn Monroe, the play was completed and produced at the Goodman Theatre, Chicago, just months before Miller's death in February 2005.

    Broken Glass (1994) is set in Brooklyn in 1938 and intertwines a woman's obsession with the news from Germany that government thugs are smashing Jewish stores, with her strange relationship with her husband.

    Mr Peter's Connections (1998) is an unforgettable journey through one man's mind at a time of suspended consciousness where the living and dead intermingle in memory.

    Resurrection Blues is Miller's astonishing black comedy set in a South American banana republic.

    The volume also includes a chronology of the author's work and an introduction by Enoch Brater, professor of English Literature at the University of Michigan.
