"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."… (mere)

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. ( )

2017 Winter:

This was a read for my Junior Class. I'm not sure I have a whole lot to say about this book. It's a clearly explained allusion for McCarthyism presented through the Salem Witch Trials. It's far more educational to my than enjoyable entertainment, but the kids did love reading parts out loud and gasping as crazier things kept happens while the hysteria ramped. ( )

The conflict gets me so tense in this play that I'll throw the book across the room when it starts to boil. ( )

I’ve been meaning to read Miller’s work for many years. I wish I could say I loved it, but this would be an overstatement. True, “The Crucible” provides a riveting history lesson that is every bit as pertinent today as it was several centuries ago. It’s certainly provocative and graphically illustrates the horrors of both literal and figurative “witch hunts.” But I found the story disjointed in numerous places, the characters somewhat one-dimensional and the writing overly preachy. True, Miller covers a lot of ground in this short work. I’m sad to say that I found this classic a bit disappointing. ( )

Very powerful and moving. At the same time it is sad, scary and so applicable to modern life. ( )

A Note on the Historical Accuracy of This Play

This play is not history in the sense in which the word is used by the academic historian.

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.
