Like little stars.
When we think of Arthur Miller’s life, we remember the grit of Depression-era Brooklyn, N.Y., the rising fear of communism in the ’50s, his brief marriage to Marilyn Monroe. When we think of Miller’s plays, we imagine witch hunts, the “common man,” the shimmer of the American dream. The two aspects of the artist — the life and the work — frequently intertwined, and it was when their electrified ends touched and sent sparks flying that Miller became more than a great writer, but also an activist, an important thinker, and a much needed voice of dissent. And although his two best-known works, “Death of a Salesman” and “The Crucible,” date back to 1949 and 1953, respectively, Miller was still causing a stir little more than a year ago with his now infamous Nation essay on Cuba.
Below is a list of Web resources on Miller’s life and work. It’s by no means exhaustive (there is, it seems, a Web site for every word Miller ever set down on paper), so if we’ve missed your favorite Miller site, send it to us.

World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
