Educated at the University of Michigan, Miller graduated in 1936. He had various jobs including copywriter and psychiatric aide. He joined the faculty of New York University and New Hampshire University. In 1935, he joined the League of American Writers, a predominantly Communist organisation.His firs play, No Villain, was written while he was still at college and won the Avery Hopwood Award.

In 1940, Miller married Mary Grace Slattery and was exempted from military duty due to a football injury to his knee. That year, he produced his first play, The Man Who Had All the Luck, which had terrible reviews and closed after four performances. Nevertheless, the play won The Theatre Guild's National Award. Miller continued writing during the war. In 1948, he produced Death of a Saleman, a classic of world theatre and one which would win a Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize. The play was a commercial success and made Miller financially independent. He divorced his wife and married Marilyn Monroe in 1956. They divorced in 1961, shortly before the premiere of The Misfits. Miller was supoenaed by the House Un-American Committee (HUAC) in 1954 and was sentenced to a fine and a prison sentence, black-listed and denied a passport for failing to name names of Communist sympathizers. The sentence was overturned by the court of appeals. Miller continued to have success and in 1993 was awarded the National Medal of Arts. His final play, Finishing the Picture was produced in 2004.His other works include Honor at Dawn (1938), The Golden Years (1940), All My Sons (1947), The Crucible (1953), A View From the Bridge (1955), After the Fall (1964), Up From Paradise (1974), The Last Yankee (1993) and Resurrection Blues (2002).
