This Student Edition of After the Fall is perfect for students of literature and drama and offers an unrivalled and comprehensive guide to Miller's play. It features an extensive introduction by Katherine Egerton which includes a chronology of Miller's life and times, a summary of the plot and commentary on the characters, themes, language, context and production history of the play. Together with over twenty questions for further study and detailed notes on words and phrases from the text, this is the definitive edition of the play.


Set in a New England state mental hospital in the early 1990s when Prozac was routinely adminstered to treat depression, The Last Yankee sees Miller exploring aspects of the American Dream through the lives of four characters who question and grapple with definitions of success, health and fulfillment. Described by Miller as 'a comedy about a tragedy' the one act play highlights conflicts between men and women, between the working class and the capitalist businessman and between interior and exterior realities.
