In the rigid theocracy of Salem, rumors that women are practicing witchcraft galvanize the towns most basic fears and suspicions. 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 1952, The Crucible famously mirrors the anticommunist hysteria that held the United States in its grip.
