My American Lit classes finished reading this today. I’ve read it many times and it just doesn’t get old. I’d give it five stars if the ending wasn’t so abrupt, but I suppose it’s hard to simulate a hanging on the stage, so Miller didn’t have much of a choice.
The kids (high school juniors) really get into it. Part of it is the story, but I know a lot of it has to do with getting to shout “whore” and “harlot” as we read it out loud. Hey, whatever gets them to like literature.
