Crucible Project

Crucible Project

THE CRUCIBLE - by Arthur Miller
Selected Websites

The "important theme" that Miller was writing about was clear to many observers.  It was written in response to Senator McCarthy and the House Un-American Activities Committee's crusade against supposed communist sympathizers.  Despite the obvious political criticisms contained within the play, most critics felt that "The Crucible" was "a self contained play about
a terrible period in American history."
