Resurrection Blues (Penguin Plays)by Arthur Miller
Synopses & Reviews
To celebrate the centennial of his birth, the collected plays of Americas greatest twentieth-century dramatist in a beautiful bespoke hardcover edition
In the history of postwar American art and politics, Arthur Miller casts a long shadow as a playwright of stunning range and power whose works held up a mirror to America and its shifting values. The Penguin Arthur Miller celebrates Millers creative and intellectual legacy by bringing together the breadth of his plays, which span the decades from the 1930s to the new millennium. From his quiet debut, The Man Who Had All the Luck, and All My Sons, the follow-up that established him as a major talent, to career hallmarks like The Crucible and Death of a Salesman, and later works like Mr. Peters Connections and Resurrection Blues, the range and courage of Millers moral and artistic vision are here on full display.
This lavish bespoke edition, specially produced to commemorate the Miller centennial, is a must-have for devotees of Millers work. The Penguin Arthur Miller will ensure a permanent place on any bookshelf for the full span of Millers extraordinary dramatic career.
Arthur Miller’s penultimate play, Resurrection Blues, is a darkly comic satirical allegory that poses the question: What would happen if Christ were to appear in the world today? In an unidentified Latin American country, General Felix Barriaux has captured an elusive revolutionary leader. The rebel, known by various names, is rumored to have performed miracles throughout the countryside. The General plans to crucify the mysterious man, and the exclusive television rights to the twenty-four-hour reality-TV event
have been sold to an American network for $25 million. An allegory that asserts the interconnectedness of our actions and each person’s culpability in world events, Resurrection Blues is a comedic and tragic satire of precarious morals in our media-saturated age.
