The Crucible by Arthur Miller




Arthur Miller's The Crucible, in the context of the historical Salem Witch Trials, shows many innocent people being accused of crimes/sins they did not commit.  Throughout history, society has been blinded to similar occurrences, or "witch hunts."  Indeed, Miller wrote The Crucible in response to one of those "witch hunts" that took place in his time period--McCarthyism.
