    One thought on “The Crucible”

    1. I hate to rate this so low when it seems that the only people who do so are those forced to read it by a cruel teacher I m even troubled by the fact that I haven t seen anyone else bring up what bothers me about this play.Yes, it s well written that is, the dialogue is expertly handled There are truly beautiful passages, such as this one I came into this village like a bridegroom to his beloved, bearing gifts of high religion the very crowns of holy law I brought, and what I touched with my bri [...]

    2. This is a magnificent play about what happens when hysteria takes over a society, and evil people gain access to the levers of power something, alas, which happens all too frequently.The focus of the story is John Proctor s struggle to redeem himself from the horrible guilt he has suffered since committing adultery with Abigail This is indeed very moving But, for some reason, the part I think of most often is a detail concerning one of the minor characters, Giles Corey, who dies offstage halfway [...]

Recently, a group of students allegedly shouted anti India slogans at the Jawaharlal Nehru University JNU in Delhi, and the political and religious conservatives in India went virtually mad Soon, any criticism of India was seen as unpatriotic and traitorous The JNU, a leftist stronghold and a thorn in the flesh of the Hindu Right Wing government at the centre, was termed a positive hotbed of crime and vice and a recruiting ground for terrorists Many a Muslim, unless he wore his love of India on [...]

    5. Book ReviewI may be a little unpopular with my 3 of 5 stars rating for The Crucible, a play by Arthur Miller, but in my world, a 3 means it s your generally good book play movie with some great things, some bad things, and an overall yeah, you should probably read it The topic Salem Witch Trials, one of my absolute favorite time periods in American history to research Miller is brilliant, I acknowledge it He bring suspense, timing and charisma in everything he does But when this is about an epis [...]

    6. Estoy sin palabras Realmente estremece ver hasta d nde es capaz de llegar la gente por estupidez, envidia y lujuria Pero lo que m s me ha gustado ha sido la fuerza moral de Proctor impresionante.

    7. I ll tell you what s walking Salem vengeance is walking Salem We are what we always were in Salem, but now the little crazy children are jangling the keys of the kingdom, and common vengeance writes the law Such is the power of those noticeable quotes in Arthur Miller s play The Crucible the power to cause the audience to question the issues arising when vengeance is allowed to write common law Arthur Miller s play was created to be challenging for this very purpose.This was written at a time wh [...]

    9. the Devil is alive in Salem, and we dare not quail to follow wherever the accusing finger points Though Miller claims to have had an abiding interest in the Salem Witch Trials, we all know this play was written as a gigantic Screw You to Senator Joseph McCarthy and his investigations into alleged Un American activities The amazing thing is how well the play works on its own Even if you know nothing of McCarthyism, you will still be moved by the plight of a small Massachusetts village wracked by [...]

    10. A fascinating exploration of the consequences of unquestioned power, though an awful portrayal of women I appreciated Arthur Miller bringing attention to the Salem Witch Trials and anti communist hysteria I hated how he treated Abigail and the other female characters in this story as crazy and antagonizing Yes, Abigail s actions posed major problems but Miller portrays John Proctor, the man who has illicit sex with her, as a martyr Miller grants the men in this play complexity and autonomy he re [...]

    12. It was one of those rare books that are forced upon you and then when you read it, you fall Hard While Miller might have written it with the McCarthy Era in mind, it applies very well to the current era of singling out a group of people and labeling them as evil I reread it a few months back and it still gave me the chills Proof of what the power of fear has I d recommend this to anyone and everyone, though if you re not one for symbolism and parallels, this might not work as well.

    13. We are what we always were in Salem, but now the little crazy children are jangling the keys of the kingdom, and common vengeance writes the law There is a remarkably harrowing scene in Frank Darabont s expertly executed 2007 film adaptation of Stephen King s lovecraftian novella The Mist The stage for this particular drama to unfold A group of denizens of a small rural town are holed up in a grocery store, enveloped by a mysterious, impossibly thick mist To venture outside is inadvisable, since [...]

    16. 4.5 starsI would imagine that most people are familiar with The Crucible, but for those that are not, The Crucible is a play Arthur Miller wrote about the Salem Witch Trials Miller wrote this in the early 1950s as a response to the dangers that Joseph McCarthy s actions toward declaring that people were Communists and how this is a case of history repeating itself a little than 250 years later In the late 1690s, young girls were making accusations toward who they believed were witches that resu [...]

To start off 2016, I decided that chance should pick my first read So I got my Book Jar off the shelf and asked my little brother to draw for med this is what he came up with I was a bit disappointed because I was sure it would be boring, but it proved a pleasant surprise because I enjoyed myself a lot If anyone had recommended this to me saying Anne, you re going to love this heretic 17th century play about a village that goes crazy and starts putting random people in jail You ll laugh your hea [...]

    18. Oh, the noose, the noose is up What an intense and disturbing read The crucible is a play written by Arthur Miller in 1953, about the destructive nature of superstition, ignorance, fear, corruption, greed and vengeance It is ostensibly based on the witch trials in Salem in the seventeenth century, but is truly inspired by the persecutions of communists and unAmericans by Senator McCarthy.

    19. What a gripping story This could be redone into a dystopian YA novel and it is set in history It is a powerful work How terrifying it is that people can be so brutal to each other A very dark bit of American history Not the best story to read during 45 I hope we don t repeat this sort of history The story is good and it leaves me in a dark mood I don t think I ll read this again and I m glad of the reminder of it I need something lighter now.

    20. About as perfect an allegory as can be created a story about a witch hunt meant to be an extended metaphor for a witch hunt You are pulling down heaven and raising up a whore Arthur Miller s brilliant 1953 play about the infamous Salem witch trials is also a scathing indictment of the McCarthy communist hearings of the early 50s and how hysteria whether theocratic or jingoistic political can lead to nasty results Life, woman, life is God s most precious gift no principle, however glorious, may j [...]

    21. A masterpiece in the history of Theatre can one put into words all the feelings that come to surface when you read The Crucible What makes it even shuttering, is the fact that it has always been relevant to any era, because it represents the fear in front of something we cannot understand, and the need to create witch hunts in order to cover up our own faults as human beings and as members of our socities John Proctor is the Everyman, he stands for every human being that is rightfully afraid in [...]

    22. Arthur Miller s scathing indictment of 50 s era McCarthyism was interesting than I thought it would be Miller set the piece in Salem, MA during the infamous 1692 witch trials The play itself is divided into four acts and features the struggles individual villagers face as they are confronted with a hellish choice between hanging for witchcraft or falsely confessing, a choice which leads to the death of others.The action is driven by a posse of teenage girls In order to escape punishment for dan [...]

    24. Bleh Just bleh I definitely did NOT enjoy reading this in the eighth grade, nor will I EVER like reading it in the years to come That was the review I wrote right after finishing it three years ago from now 2010.After reading it a second time for my junior year, now I can at least understand the text Schools often make kids read literature that is too mature for their age group, and I have come to find that even a single year s difference can make or break one s comprehension of the book Now I c [...]

    25. Describe perfectamente el fanatismo, la estupidez general y el histerismo colectivo, sacando lo malo de toda colectividad, describiendo como se va haciendo una bola de mentiras, odios y tonter as cada vez m s grande Como se aprovechan algunos de la situaci n para vengarse de los dem s, con mentiras y falsos testimonios y como los dem s, como borregos, se lo creen absolutamente todo como si fuera verdad o por comodidad Indignante Realmente los seres humanos podemos llegar a alcanzar cotas alt sim [...]
