Description

Joe Keller and Herbert Deever, partners in a machine shop during World War II, turned out defective airplane parts, causing the deaths of many men. Deever was sent to prison while Keller escaped punishment and became a wealthy man. In this commanding work, a love affair between Keller’s son, Chris, and Ann Deever, Herbert’s daughter, the bitterness of Herbert;s son, George, who returns from the war to find his father in prison and his father’s partner free, and the reaction of a son to his father’s guilt escalate toward a climax of electrifying intensity.

All My Sons first introduced the themes that run through Miller’s work as a whole: the relationships between fathers and sons and the conflict between business ethics and personal morality.
