All My Sons
, like most of Miller's work, is concerned with the dark underbelly of the American Dream. This time, it's prosperous, postwar America under the microscope, and the cracks are just starting to show. It's becoming evident that things are not what they seem.
Arthur Miller's first success was All My Sons. It received the New York Drama Critics Circle award in 1947. The family drama deals with the issues of guilt and dishonesty that Miller revisits and expands upon in later works. The Keller family is forced to cope with the possible loss of a son listed as missing in action during World War II. It is a moving commentary on war and its impact on families back home.
