After a lot of difficulties he was allowed to enter the University of Michigan, where his talent as a playwright emerged (even his undergraduate plays won important university awards). After his graduation in 1938 Miller wrote radio plays, screenplays, articles, stories and a novel until his first successful Broadway play ("All My Sons"). Afte ... mehr
