Arthur Miller The Crucible A Critical Study by Shakti Batra Acknowledged, along with Tennessee Williams, as one of the two greatest dramatists of the post-World War II era, Arthur Miller synthesizes elements from social and psychological realism, He attained eminence as a dramatist primarily from four plays he wrote early in his career_ All My Sons, Death of a Salesman, The Crucible, and A View from the Bridge. The Crucible is a dramatization of the Salem witch trials that took place in 1692. Miller wrote the play as an allegory of McCarthyism, when the US government blacklisted and persecuted the communists in the 1950s. Now considered a classic, it is a central work in the canon of American drama. The present critical study explores the play primarily from the perspective of students in Indian universities and abroad. Shakti Batra has been Vice-principal, Dyal Singh College (University of Delhi), has also taught at the Kabul University and the University of Kyrgyzstan, Bishkek.
