By far, one of my favourite reads. And sometimes you wait forever to read a book, hoping for the best, and you get something deep and wonderful. You get The Crucible. These two most famous plays by the late and accomplished writer Arthur Miller moved and changed theatre at the time, with The Crucible also winning a Tony just like Death of a Salesmen had.

But while many more of the multitudes cheer on Salesman, and it has received praise I feel unequal to what is it, The Crucible makes the grade as a far better and more meaningful story. Premiering in , The Crucible was a political allegory of the current McCarthy communist witchhunts that was sweeping the landscape of the United States. McCarthy was a minor senator who latched onto fame and glory, in his twisted mind, by leading a committee to ferret out alleged commies all over the American government and entertainment industry.

Flimsy proof and outright lies was offered as evidence of being a traitor.

Many famous people, including Lucille Ball, were targeted. Some, like Ball, survived with their name intact. Others, like Charlie Chaplin, left for Europe and only returned decades later.

Miller did a smart tactic and decided, when exposing this insanity, to go back to the past and dramatize an earlier witchhunt in American history, also equally insane. They also have plenty of petty squabbles, legal wranglings, and illicit affairs between them, enough that it appears their religious lifestyle is a bit of a sham.

Into this potent mix is a sick young girl, daughter of a prominent member of the community, who suffers from a mysterious ailment. Whispers spread as to what is wrong and stories spread that the girl and some friends were dancing in the woods.

Fear breeds as to what this all means, but the only real conclusion is the devil. Quickly accusations and deranged trials occur with alarming regularity. Hangings happen. And it took years for the community to heal from the damage their own paranoia wrought. The Crucible admits to not being completely historically accurate, and many scholars point to even more details and characters that are not entirely correct.

But the gist of tragedy, and how it relates to the events Miller was really going on about, are all here. In the play, shortly after the girl falls ill, the tale shifts to one man and his family.

John Proctor is outspoken and has issue with the local Reverend. He also cheated on his wife Elizabeth with a younger woman Abigail. To get revenge and to make John hers, Abigail raises accusations against Elizabeth.

It all spirals into a courtroom scene where John tries to clear his wife and the situation goes even more off the rails. By the end, so many are dead and about to die and the community in falling into chaos.

Individuality versus the State. What you are worth as a person.

The honour of your name and what it means to you. How your sins are really between you and your God. Successfully reported this slideshow. We use your LinkedIn profile and activity data to personalize ads and to show you more relevant ads.

Description A haunting examination of groupthink and mass hysteria in a rural community "I believe that the reader will discover here the essential nature of one of the strangest and most awful chapters in human history," Arthur Miller wrote in an introduction to "The Crucible," his classic play about the witch-hunts and trials in seventeenth-century Salem, Massachusetts.

Based on historical people and real events, Miller's drama is a searing portrait of a community engulfed by hysteria.Thoreau in His Own Time. Peter Brown. Publication Details Publisher: A View from the Bridge.
