In a small tight-knit community gossip and rumour spread like wildfire inflaming personal grievances until no-one is safe from accusation and vengeance. Seen as a chilling parallel to the McCarthyism and repressive culture of fear that gripped America in the 1950s, The Crucible's timeless appeal and universal themes remain as strong today as when the play opened on Broadway in 1953. This Student Edition features an extensive introduction by Susan Abbotson which includes a chronology of Miller's life and times, a summary of the plot, commentary on the characters, themes, language, context and production history of the play. Together with questions for further study and notes on words and phrases from the text, this is the essential text of the play for students of literature and drama. About the Author: Arthur Miller (1915-2005) was arguably the most important playwright of the twentieth century whose oeuvre includes novels, screenplays, essays and an autobiography. Six volumes of his plays and a volume of his theatre essays are published by Methuen Drama. Susan Abbotson is Assistant Professor of Dramatic Literature at Rhode Island College, USA.
