Arthur Miller is a playwright who stands tall with the likes of Eugene O’Neil and others of that stature.
He is admired most for his celebrated work “Death of a Salesman” but this is not to say that “All my Sons” is a lesser play in any sense.
The plot of “All My Sons” revolves around the rapacious Capitalism which can very often leave a scar on your soul and burden you with the sense of guilt. The main character in the play is such a man. He goes through the process of accumulating wealth but in that very process he looses his eldest son. He has to live with his guilt and when he is confronted through his younger son, with the evil that he had unleashed, he has no choice left but to exit.
Arthur Miller’s craft in this play is at its height and it arouses in us emotions that wring our heart.
