Title: In 1953, legendary writer Arthur Miller


1
In 1953, legendary writer Arthur Miller depicted
a story based on actual facts, facts which remain
horrifying even to this day, despite being based
on events which took place over 300 years ago.
The story is a terrifying depiction of how the
accusations of a group of children stirred up
such fear in their small community that it led
to persecution and hangings. But what makes the
story so touching even until this day is that it
applies to all witch hunts--yes, witch hunts
taking place every day.

It is the spring of 1692, the small town of
Salem, MA had been established a mere forty years
earlier and had yet to make it its mark on the
rest of the world. However, while not all were
immediately aware, 1692 would be a year of
revolution in America. No longer was everyone
willing to adhere to the strict lifestyle that
had been set down by their forefathers. While
the town of Salem may have appeared to be a
serene and enjoyable place to live, it was about
to experience an event that would change their
lives forever. Little did they know that their
story would still have a tremendous effect on us
today.

But what really makes The Crucible so special
even to this day, is that the story applies to
the events that we witness right before our own
eyes. Yes, we have allowed witch hunts to
continually take place, proving that we have yet
to correct the mistakes that were made over 300
years ago.
