The Crucible - Arthur Miller, Christopher Bigsby I'm not quite sure what to make of The Crucible, if only because I don't know the history of the Salem Witch Trials all that well. The play doesn't seem bad, but if it's not historically accurate, that would really hurt its reputation in my books.

What bothers me is that nobody can mention The Crucible without bringing up McCarthy. Allegories are allegories, yes; but sometimes a pipe is just a pipe.

Speaking of, I ought to reread this and do a Freudian analysis.
