Publisher Comments:

America's greatest playwright weaves "a vivid, crackling, idiomatic psychosexual horror tale." —Frank Rich, The New York Times

In A View from the Bridge Arthur Miller explores the intersection between one man's self-delusion and the brutal trajectory of fate. Eddie Carbone is a Brooklyn longshoreman, a hard-working man whose life has been soothingly predictable. He hasn't counted on the arrival of two of his wife's relatives, illegal immigrants from Italy; nor has he recognized his true feelings for his beautiful niece, Catherine. And in due course, what Eddie doesn't know—about her, about life, about his own heart—will have devastating consequences.

"The play has moments of intense power. . . . Miller plays on the audience with the skill of a master." —Clive Barnes, New York Post

He has also written two novels, Focus (1945), and The Misfits, which was filmed in 1960, and the text for In Russia (1969), Chinese Encounters (1979), and In the Country (1977), three books of photographs by his wife, Inge Morath. More recent works include a memoir, Timebends (1987), and the plays The Ride Down Mt. Morgan (1991), The Last Yankee (1993), Broken Glass (1993), which won the Olivier Award for Best Play of the London Season, and Mr. Peter's Connections (1998). His latest book is On Politics and the Art of Acting. Miller was granted with the 2001 Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters. He has twice won the New York Drama Critics Circle Award, and in 1949 he was awarded the Pulitzer Prize.

I will be honest with you, This is the best play i ever rad! Not only that but the best play so far in my gcse english lessons.However in my opinion there was a little more sentence that should of been added like, few years later Catherine calls her son Eddie.Also I like the characters mostly Catherine because she is like a teenage girl in England.Not only that but i would recommend this book for Age 15 and over because of where the play is set and how it is and ofcourse the romance.
