‘The Crucible’ was a play written in 1953 by Arthur Miller and effectively exposes American history by illustrating two events with comparable effects, primarily showing society’s mistrust of change. These events are the 17th century Salem Witch Hunts and the 1950’s communism scare, also known as the ‘Red Scare’ or McCarthyism. In The Crucible Miller has used the town of Salem in Massachusetts along with the Witch Hunts as a metaphor for the 1950’s communism scare. There are detectable similarities between the two historical events.
