Cover of: The Crucible | Arthur Miller

About the Book

Few serious American playwrights have captured the imagination of the theater public all over the world as has Arthur Miller with DEATH OF A SALESMAN and THE CRUCIBLE. Mr. Miller's plays are rooted in a realistically critical view of American life and propelled by the intense personal conviction of a man who cares what he writes about and writes about something that matters. In THE CRUCIBLE he turns for his setting to the grim days of the Salem witch trials, and brings into urgently brilliant focus on an issue that still weighs heavily the progress of American civilization--the problem of guilt by association.
