Originally from www.mercurynews.com

ROXBURY, Conn. - Arthur Miller, the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright whose most famous fictional creation, Willy Loman in "Death of a Salesman," came to symbolize the American Dream gone awry, has died. He was 89.

Miller died Thursday night at his home in Roxbury of heart failure, his assistant, Julia Bolus, said Friday. His family was at his bedside, she said.

His plays, with their strong emphasis on family, morality and personal responsibility, spoke to the growing fragmentation of American society.


Playwright Arthur Miller (1915) - Pulitzer prize-winning author of Death of a Salesman - and who married Marilyn Monroe in 1956 has died aged 89 after a battle against cancer.
