In Arthur Miller 's play The Crucible, false accusations and fear are used to imprison and kill many people accused of being witches. In this way, The Crucible stands as an allegory for McCarthy 's communist hunt, during which many people were also killed and imprisoned due to accusations of communism.

Many characters in The Crucible serve as allegories to McCarthy 's communist hunt, specifically Abigail Williams, Giles Corey, and Betty Parris.

She embodies a typical popular girl stereotype who enjoys overindulging in “retail therapy”, appears ditzy and vain and like most female stereotypes cannot properly drive a car. However, as the audience advances further into the movie they learn that she actually contradicts those stereotypes, or at least in the sense that she is not the average popular girl who is out to sabotage everyone. She enjoys helping others, makes good grades, is assertive without being too bossy, and even proudly boast her virginity. In comparison, Tai’s character is stereotyped as a less desirable, specifically amongst the popular kids. This is evident as she stands out from the crowd based upon her mediocre attire, heavy Bronx accent, references to drug use and general lack of understanding of cliques at the school.
The Princess Bride contains some of the most evil villains, the most entertaining heroes, and the most Sicilian Sicilians to ever exist. However, the hero of the story, Westley, lacks the qualities of an actual hero.

Bell was different than her siblings because she was raised outside of her class and culture.
