Arthur Miller is a commonly-known playwright, most famous for his 1953 play, The Crucible. The basis for The Crucible came from the witch trials which occurred in Salem, Massachusetts during the puritan era. Miller even uses some of the same characters in his dramatized play that were a part of the original witch trials in Salem. However, Miller made a few alterations to the historical members of the Salem society in order to suit his dramatic purpose in The Crucible, particularly Abigail Williams, John Proctor, and Reverend Samuel Parris.
The story is about a young girl named Abigail who is obsessed with a married man named John Proctor, who goes to Salem’s witch trials in Massachusetts during 1692. In order for Abigail being with Proctor she had to get rid of Proctor’s wife; Elizabeth. The main conflict of the movie was because of the obsession Abigail had with Proctor, innocent people were being accused of witchcraft. People were accused of witchcraft by Abigail and a group of young girls who would believe what she would say about seeing people doing witchcraft. It is a play that many people are always going to remember about because it is unbelievable that 19 people were hanged, one man was put on top of him a huge rock, and more people were accused and died in prison. It is amazing that the court believed a group of young girls and Abigail who were lying about accusing people of doing witchcraft when they were innocent.

Imagine, being accused of a crime you didn’t commit by your neighbors and friends out of jealousy, and desire. This is what many people in the town of Salem had to go through during the time of the Salem Witch Trials. People's motives such as: gaining and maintaining power, and aspirations for what other people had caused them to make irrational, and atrocious decisions. In The Crucible by Arthur Miller, desire and power drive characters to create chaos in the community.
Fear is strong and manipulative, it can cause individuals to do the wrong things for their own safety and protection. In other words; souls lie for their own well being and secureness. The Crucible has an exceeding amount of lies throughout the entire book followed by characters. However most of the lies are a result from conflicts with one of the main characters who is the reason for the whole chaos; Abigail. A popular saying, “One lie leads to another”, this saying describes The Crucible sufficiently, the book consists of lies, that lead another and another, eventually by the end of the book families and relationships are torn apart.
