The Crucible is a study in the mass hysteria which led to the 1692 Salem witchcraft trials, concentrating on the fate of some of the key figures caught up in the persecution. It powerfully depicts people and principles under pressure and the issues and motivations involved. At the same time, it is also a parable for the events of the McCarthy era in the USA of the 1950s when anyone suspected of left-wing views was arraigned for 'Un-American Activities'.

Reclams "Fremdsprachen-Lektüreschlüssel" folgen dem bewährten Aufbau- und Darstellungsprinzip der Lektüreschlüssel zur deutschen Literatur. Sie beziehen sich auf den fremdsprachigen Originaltext (wenn möglich in Reclams Roter Reihe), sind aber auf Deutsch verfasst und unterstützen ebenso die Lektüre der deutschen Übersetzung. Eine "Checkliste" enthält Aufgaben zur Verständniskontrolle in der Fremdsprache. Unter dem Darstellungstext stehen Übersetzungshilfen und Schlüsselbegriffe in der Fremdsprache, um die Bearbeitung dieser Aufgaben und ein fremdsprachiges Referieren über das Werk zu erleichtern. Lektüreschlüssel erschließen einzelne literarische Werke. Um eine Interpretation als Zentrum gruppieren sich 10 wichtige Verständniszugänge: * Erstinformation zum Werk * Inhaltsangabe * Personen (Konstellationen) * Werk-Aufbau (Strukturskizze) * Wortkommentar * Interpretation * Autor und Zeit * Rezeption * "Checkliste" zur Verständniskontrolle * Lektüretipps mit Filmempfehlungen * Raum für Notizen Millers Drama über die Hexenprozesse in Salem Village von 1692, geschrieben und uraufgeführt 1953, auf dem Höhepunkt der McCarthy-Verfolgungen. Bei aller historischen ›Treue‹ geht es um die prinzipielle Befindlichkeit einer Gesellschaft, die unter der Last der ihr aufgezwungenen Normen nicht existieren kann und die selbst zu elementarer Mitmenschlichkeit nicht mehr fähig ist. Dem Theaterstück folgte 1996 eine Hollywoodverfilmung. Miller schrieb das Drehbuch – und übernahm eine Rolle darin.

This study examines a series of recurring patterns that can be observed in Miguel de Cervantes's Novelas ejemplares (1613). Author E. T. Aylward proposes that the precise ordering of Cervantes's twelve novellas is based on the thematic and structural patterns of the individual stories contained in the collection.

On December 8, 1941, as the Pacific War reached the Philippines, Yay Panlilio, a Filipina-Irish American, faced a question with no easy answer: How could she contribute to the war? In this 1950 memoir, The Crucible: An Autobiography by Colonel Yay, Filipina American Guerrilla, Panlilio narrates her experience as a journalist, triple agent, leader in the Philippine resistance against the Japanese, and lover of the guerrilla general Marcos V. Augustin. From the war-torn streets of Japanese-occupied Manila, to battlegrounds in the countryside, and the rural farmlands of central California, Panlilio blends wry commentary, rigorous journalistic detail, and popular romance. Weaving together appearances by Douglas MacArthur and Carlos Romulo with dangerous espionage networks, this work provides an insightful perspective on the war. The Crucible invites readers to see new intersections in Filipina/o, Asian American, and American literature studies, and Denise Cruz's introduction imparts key biographical, historical, and cultural contexts to that purpose.

This Student Edition of The Crucible is perfect for students of literature and drama and offers an unrivalled guide to Miller's classic play. It features an extensive introduction by Susan C. W. Abbotson which includes: a chronology of Miller's life and times; a summary of the plot and commentary on the characters, themes, language, context and production history of the play. Together with over twenty questions for further study, detailed notes on words and phrases from the text and the additional scene 2 of the second Act, this is the definitive edition of the play. In a small tight-knit community gossip and rumour spread like wildfire inflaming personal grievances until no-one is safe from accusation and vengeance. The Crucible is Miller's classic dramatisation of the witch-hunt and trials that besieged the Puritan community of Salem in 1692. Seen as a chilling parallel to the McCarthyism and repressive culture of fear that gripped America in the 1950s, the play's timeless relevance and appeal remains as strong as when the play opened on Broadway in 1953.
