Although Miller had never sought to make anyone “believe” in Puritan theology, he clearly thought (as Harlan put it) that Puritan texts had transcendent value. They could “illuminate the dark corners of life,” help us “resist the blind cravings of the ego,” and encourage us “to challenge to the myths of self-realization and material progress that have come to dominate American culture” (1997: 33–4).
