The Crucible by Arthur Miller is an incredibly complex play depicting the fictional events of the Salem Witch Trials. If one is to begin to dissect the contents of said play, you must look at it from a psychological point of view.

Psychoanalysis, founded by Sigmund Freud, is a type of therapy which aims to make the unconscious mind conscious by releasing repressed emotions . In this type of therapy, they believe the patient’s condition can be determined by any repressed memories of childhood as well as any conflict between their conscious and subconscious which can result in these mental illnesses.

The Oedipus complex concerns a son’s desire for his mother and his competition with his father for her attention whereas the Electra complex is the female version of this and involves a daughter’s competition with her mother for her father’s attention and love .

Schizophrenia: one of many types of mental illnesses that is able to stretch and mold one’s inner mind and emotions to monstrous proportions. Imagine the person that holds your affection the most, a spouse, a family member, a close friend, anyone, now imagine that person writhing with anger to an extreme extent within the confines of their own mind. Behavior such as that of schizophrenia is what columnist Steve Lopez tries to describe in his novel, The Soloist.
