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 oppositio. s 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. To read this book, upload an EPUB or FB2 file to Bookmate.

Arthur Miller was a prominent figure in American literature and cinema for over sixty years, writing a wide variety of plays - including The Crucible, A View from the Bridge, All My Sons, and Death of a Salesman - which are still performed, studied and lauded throughout the world. Born in 1915 to moderately affluent Jewish-American parents, Miller wrote during a fascinating time in American history. The Great Depression was a period of deprivation for many that left an indelible mark on the national psyche, and, like many, Miller found hope for the beleaguered common man in Communism.

I've never seen the play or any odd the movies, but the book was really good. It centers around Abigail Williams and John Proctor. Abigail was one of the leaders of the girls who accused townspeople of being witches. In real life, she was only 11, but she is an older teenager in the play. John Proctor is a well thought of farmer. In actuality, he was 60 years old, but his character is in his 30's in the play. The characters are fairly historically correct. I enjoyed researching to find out what history says happened after reading Miller's work.

The Crucible by Arthur Miller is a very well written account of the Salem Witch Trials and provides an incredible portrait of the complexities of the human soul. It's hard to believe that people allowed this travesty to occur. Are there people today who would fall into this type of situation? Absolutely.
That is what is so scary about the Salem Witch Hunt. We must continue to remember this event in order to make sure it doesn't happen again.

I highly recommend this excellent work by Mr. Miller.

One of the masterpieces of US drama. Although it has four acts it flowed forcefully from the first to last page. A must for anyone interested in the theatre or US literature. In every respect, characterization, plot, dialogue and the interplay of all elements, an incredible and poetic work of art. It is about the only thing that separates the human race from all other species, integrity and values other than self preservation. One of the few plays in US literature that has the power of classical works of the Greeks and Shakespeare.

I was assigned an English paper to be written on an author of the Literary Canon. A friend of mine recommended this book so I decided to read it. This book blew me away. The plot was engaging and there was never a moment when I became disinterested. The story of one girl turning a whole town against a group of wrongly accused people of practicing witchcraft blew me away. The whole time I was reading the book I was rooting for Abigail's manipulation and lies to be exposed. The one thing I liked about the characters in this book is they all had a driving purpose. It ranged from wanting the affections of a married man to trying to redeem ones self by saving a town from a group of evil women. I feel this a great educational book. It gives insight into the Salem Witch Trials and also Puritan religion. It has all of the drama and secrets of a great book while also teaching an important moral lesson. It shows how one lie can spiral out of control and have devastating consequences. After reading this book, I was interested in the characters real life stories and researched. This is one of those books that will keep you thinking after your read it about the characters, plot, and the sad ending. This book will always remain on my bookshelf for future rereadings.

I never had to read The Crucible in high school so thought I would give it a read much later than typical. I was intrigued and saddened by the piece, but found it overall to be beautifully written and personally challenging to read and imagine oneself in such an environment. I do suggest others read this work and better understand the price one pays to allow hatred and intolerance to guide actions and behaviors. Although many would argue this wouldn't happen today, I would say watch the news and you'll see just how present this work continues to be.

Although this book portrays a society from many years ago, I think that the story provides a lot of thoughts and reflections about our actual society. The women's role, religion influence: these topics are strong in the book and it helps to analyze how the world evolved - and still needs to evolve. It's amazing how Miller builds the story and the characters and how their futures change from the beginning until the end, very dramatic. Even that sometimes I was unhappy with things that happened and could barely believe how insensitive an human being can be, I have to admit that injustices, unfortunately, happen every day. I suggest that you read the book and, after that, watch the movie, which is really good too.

Read it in college, valued its challenges. Recently read it again and found still challenging and insightful, particularly in the modern American ecclesiastical, political, and social circumstances.
The almost impossible-to-believe events of the witch hunts and superstitious mentality of that age are well-portrayed in this story created by Arthur Miller, and are based on well-documented, established historical facts.
The hanging deaths of 19 people and 2 dogs resulted from the judgment of a trial implemented by testimony determining the guilty of those who has "seen the Devil" and would not confess the name of co-impiritors.
The parallel to the Communist purge in the 1950s by congressman McCarthy is clear as those to be forgiven would be those who offered the names and places of citizens that were to then come forward before the committee because of their alleged connections to the red menace.
