DESCRIPTION : The Crucible is a 1953 play by American playwright Arthur Miller. It is a dramatized and partially fictionalized story of the Salem witch trials that took place in the Massachusetts Bay Colony during 1692/93. Miller wrote the play as an allegory for McCarthyism, when the United States government ostracized people for being communists. The play was first performed at the Martin Beck Theatre on Broadway on January 22, 1953, starring E. G. Marshall, Beatrice Straightand Madeleine Sherwood. Miller felt that this production was too stylized and cold and the reviews for it were largely hostile (although The New York Times noted "a powerful play [in a driving performance"). Nonetheless, the production won the 1953 Tony Award for Best Play - In Salem Massachusetts, a group of girls of Girls are caught by the puritan Minister Reverend Paris dancing naked in the forest. The Reverend's daughter collapses immediately on sighting her father knowing well the consequences of their sin and the severe punishment that may be met on them. They however allege that they have been bewitched by the witches. - Due to their claims, a special court is set up to investigate this alleged claim by the girls prompting judges to come all the way from Boston to assist the residence of Salem - As court proceedings are going on, the supposedly afflicted girls indict individuals in the town of witchcraft, over and over again choosing victims who they or their families loathe. The special courts discovers over a hundred of Salem citizens are witches...The court's attempt to preserve Puritan morality by arresting and putting to death accused witches ironically leads to the removal of the most righteous people in the society.

DESCRIPTION : Seminar paper from the year 2000 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 1,7 (A-), University of Munster (Anglistics/ American Studies), course: Advanced Seminar Modern American Drama, 13 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: As Arthur Miller states in his autobiography,1 The Crucible has become his most frequently produced play. This great success of a conventional drama can certainly not be explained without regard to its political message. When the play was first performed in 1953, its audiences were quick to recognize the connections between the witch craze in 17th century Massachusetts and the American anti-communist hysteria of their own time. Like any literary text, The Crucible reflects the conditions under which it was produced, and Miller himself says that he could not have written it at any other time.2 Since in this case parallels between the events in both times are extremely striking, it seems necessary for the understanding and interpretation of the play to explain its dual historical context. At the same time, it would be wrong to interpret Miller's drama against this background only. Or, as Reitz puts it: "The Crucible ist kein Schlusseldrama, das auf die vordergrundige Aktualitat von Wiedererkennungseffekten setzt und zu diesem Zweck Anhanger und Gegner McCarthys als Puritaner (...) kostumiert."3 Miklos Trocsanyi argues similarly, pointing out that Miller was glad, when in the contemporary criticism (...) less and less mention was made of and parallel drawn between the witchcraft hysteria and McCarthyism. It meant that the deeper message was more and more appreciated.4 Finding out about this "deeper message" is what the analysis of the dual historical context aims at. Therefore this research paper will, after explaining the historical circumstances of both the Salem witch hunt and the American anticommunism under McCarthy, focus on parallel phenomena underlying the events in both times.
