The Crucible

INTRODUCTIONThe Crucible is a play written by Arthur Miller. It was written in the year 1953. The story is a dramatic re-enactment of the Salem Witch Trials in Massachusetts. It takes place in a Puritan Village in 1692. The play centers on real events, but is not an actual historical account. Arthur Miller intended to use the Salem Witch Trials as an allegory about the anti-communist Red Scare and Sen. Joseph McCarthy's congressional hearings going on in the United States at the time. The story is filled with fear and passion. It makes for a great read that really makes you think.

More about the Puritans-began as a movement within the Church of England-believed that God had absolute control over their lives-very superstitious and always on the lookout for signs of bad luck-believed punishment for witchcraft is death
