Abstract

Arthur Miller's play, The Crucible, is not only a commentary on the witch hunting that took place in Salem, Massachusetts, in the seventeenth century, but is a creation of profound meaning for the twentieth century.

This play cries out for awareness, individuality, and the necessity of man making a home for himself within himself before he can make a place in society and in the universe of which he is so vital a part. These are the stabilizing factors that modern man is so lacking.
