The Crucible by Arthur Miller & Christopher W. E. Bigsby Book Summary

A haunting examination of groupthink and mass hysteria in a rural community
 
The place is Salem, Massachusetts, in 1692, an enclave of rigid piety huddled on the edge of a wilderness. Its inhabitants believe unquestioningly in their own sanctity. But in Arthur Miller's edgy masterpiece, that very belief will have poisonous consequences when a vengeful teenager accuses a rival of witchcraft—and then when those accusations multiply to consume the entire village.

First produced in 1953, at a time when America was convulsed by a new epidemic of witch-hunting, The Crucible brilliantly explores the threshold between individual guilt and mass hysteria, personal spite and collective evil. It is a play that is not only relentlessly suspenseful and vastly moving but that compels readers to fathom their hearts and consciences in ways that only the greatest theater ever can.

"A drama of emotional power and impact" —New York Post

Another great play ;This is definitely worth reading , I enjoyed Arthur millers play , and if you have read the death of a salesman , you will most likely enjoy it too ..Score: 5/5

More relevant all the timeMiller's use of history as allegory becomes more important as ignorance re-establishes itself as king. Nowadays, it seems people want to slip into ignorance to avoid the harsh realities of a world grown too complex to comprehend. Of course, I suppose this is nothing new, but perhaps the myriad of opportunities for educating oneself make it more ironic. The Parrises of the world applaud this development because they aim to swoop in and claim their prizes. Will you keep your soul or sell it to Danforth?.Score: 5/5

A great story, well playedArthur Miller's insights into our society and history are one of my treasures; this film captures the play superbly (and frighteningly).Score: 5/5

A good book ruined by grammer mistakesThis is an excellent book, I just can't help but notice the shocking amount of grammatical errors throughout this book. Whether it be stage directions that are only half italisized, bolded words that shouldn't be bolded, or the occasional double period (".." or ".," instead of just "."), there is something wrong on almost every page in the book. There are way too many mistakes to be called simple mistakes anymore. This is just the book publisher being downright careless. I am truly the ultimate Grammar Nazi. (The book itself was really good, by the way.).Score: 3/5

Love!!!Arthur Miller is one of my favorite playwrights of all time. The Crucible gives us a look of the Salem Witch Trials as well as what Arthur Miller thought of the MacArthur Trials of his time. The similarities are very shocking. This is just an amazing story written by an amazing playwright..Score: 5/5
