"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. In the rigid theocracy of Salem, rumors that women are practicing witchcraft galvanize the town's most basic fears and suspicions; and when a young girl accuses Elizabeth Proctor of being a witch, self-righteous church leaders and townspeople insist that Elizabeth be brought to trial. The ruthlessness of the prosecutors and the eagerness of neighbor to testify against neighbor brilliantly illuminate the destructive power of socially sanctioned violence. Written in 1953, The Crucible is a mirror Miller uses to reflect the anti-communist hysteria inspired by Senator Joseph McCarthy's witch-hunts in the United States. Within the text itself, Miller contemplates the parallels, writing: "Political opposition ... is given an inhumane overlay, which then justifies the abrogation of all normally applied customs of civilized behavior. A political policy is equated with moral right, and opposition to it meets with diabolical malevolence."… (més)

Salem witch trials meets McCarthyism red-scare symbolism. There is also a redemption arc for John Proctor, fornicator/lecher, in refusing to confess an imaginary sin, he redeems himself (in a way) of his real sin.

I feel that I'll need to read this again in the near future to truly appreciate it; because of the number of names in this play, some of the characters sort of blended together for me ( )

The classic 1950 play by Miller relates the tragic moment in American history {hysteria} that is the Salem Witch Trials of 1692. Through this lense, Miller spoke up against the Red Scare of the time and Senator McCarthy who lead the House Un-American Committee (HUAC) that "sought out Communists hiding amongst decent American citizens."

The story of jealousy turned to hysteria and madness in Salem is a timeless tale of when power is given over to those who seek to destroy for their own gains. John Proctor is a tragic hero who refuses to allow the madness to take hold but in the end, he is no match for the power of his own guilt and sense of hypocrisy.

Told in 4 Acts, this play is wonderful for exploring the way a writer can use historical context to speak and persuade an audience about current events. Still relevant, even in 2021, the play is a masterful and powerfully written exploration of those themes and motifs above.

Recommended for readers at least of 10th grade and older.

Even written down the scenes of this play ring out in a terrifying way. Highly recommend. ( )

Okay, It wasn't great, with the hanging and the false accusations and whatnot, but it lived up to its hype. And it was very historically accurate. I looked it up. Which made it much less suspenseful. Which was good, because my favorite character was accused and knowing gave me time to cope with the loss. ( )

It was good. There is a show on Netflix (or there was I don't know if it is still on there) called Salem which is based on this book. I really enjoyed the show. This felt like reading the super condensed version of that. This is one of those rare instances that I actually felt that the show was better than the book. Though I guess in this instance, that isn't too far fetched since the book is actually a play and is meant to be seen. ( )

PROCTOR: I have trouble enough without I come five mile to hear him preach only hellfire and bloody damnation. Take it to heart, Mr. Parris. There are many others who stay away from church these days because you hardly ever mention God any more.
PARRIS: There is a party in this church. I am not blind; there is a faction and a party.

PROCTOR: Against you?
PUTNAM: Against him and all authority.
PROCTOR: Why, then I must find it and join it.
PARRIS. Why could there not have been poppets hid where no one ever saw them?

PROCOTR. There might also be a dragon with five legs in my house, but no one has ever seen it.
