Contents: "I believe that the reader will discover here the essential nature of one of the strangest and most awful chapters in human history, : Arthur Miller wrote in an introduction to The Crucible, his classic play about the witch-hunts and trials in seventeenth-century Salem, Massachusetts. Based on historical people and real events, Miller's drama is a searing portrait of a community engulfed by hysteria. In the rigid theorcracy of Salem, rumors that women are practicing witchcraft galvanize the town's most basic fears and suspicions; and when a young girl accuses Elizabeth Proctor of being a witch, self-righteous church leaders and townspeople insist that Elizabeth be brought to trail. The ruthlessness of the prosecutors and the eagerness of neighbor brilliantly illuminate the destructive power of socially sanctioned violence.
