The crucible : a play in four acts by Arthur Miller( Book )

679 editions published between 1900 and 2019 in 11 languages and held by 10,894 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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 theocracy 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 trial. The ruthlessness of the prosecutors and the eagerness of neighbor to testify against neighbor brilliantly illuminate the destructive power of socially sanctioned violence. Written in 1953, The Crucible is a mirror Miller uses to reflect the anti-communist hysteria inspired by Senator Joseph McCarthy's witch-hunts in the United States. Within the text itself, Miller contemplates the parallels, writing: "Political opposition ... is given an inhumane overlay, which then justifies the abrogation of all normally applied customs of civilized behavior. A political policy is equated with moral right, and opposition to it meets with diabolical malevolence."

Echoes down the corridor : collected essays, 1944-2000 by Arthur Miller( Book )

30 editions published between 2000 and 2005 in English and held by 1,171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A collection of socio-political essays by Miller, whose realistic works of drama largely deal with topics of public morality. In "The Nazi Trials and the German Heart" (pp. 62-68), Miller reflects on the Frankfurt trial of Nazi war criminals in 1964, which he attended. Focuses on the German public's opposition to such trials due to its approbation of those who follow orders, which poses a threat to democracy in Germany and, it is stressed, elsewhere as well. "Guilt and 'Incident at Vichy'" (pp. 69-75), written in 1965, discusses the actual incident when a non-Jew gave his life to save a Jew in the Holocaust, which inspired Miller's play. Claims that the play is not about Nazism or wartime horrors, but about the individual's relation to injustice and violence. "The Face in the Mirror: Anti-Semitism Then and Now" (pp. 205-208), written in 1984, recalls wartime U.S. antisemitism and lack of comprehension of Nazi racism, and the taboo on writing about U.S. antisemitism. These factors led Miller to write "Focus, " a novel about an antisemite who changes his attitude toward Jews. There has been a decrease in antisemitism since the 1960s, but this "deeply social" phenomenon is related to permanent human traits, reflecting the alienation of indigenous peoples that is projected onto Jews and "Jews."
