The Crucible


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

"The Crucible" is a 1952 play by the American playwright Arthur Miller. It is a dramatization of the Salem witch trials that took place in the Province of Massachusetts Bay during 1692 and 1693. Miller wrote the play as an allegory of McCarthyism, when the US government blacklisted accused communists. Miller himself was questioned by the House of Representatives' Committee on Un-American Activities in 1956 and convicted of "contempt of Congress" for refusing to identify others present at meetings he had attended. It was first performed at the Martin Beck Theater on Broadway on January 22, 1953. Miller felt that this production was too stylized and cold and the reviews for it were largely hostile (although The New York Times noted "a powerful play in a driving performance"). Nonetheless, the production won the 1953 "Best Play" Tony Award. A year later a new production succeeded and the play became a classic. It is a central work in the canon of American drama. Fuji Books' edition of "The Crucible" contains supplementary texts: * "Tragedy And The Common Man", an essay by Arthur Miller. * Excerpts from Nathaniel Hawthorne's magnus opus "The Scarlet Letter", a narrative of the Salem Witch trials. * A few selected quotes of Arthur Miller.

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'.

Out Of The Crucible Treasure Quest Book 2


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Set against the rigors of frontier life in the West, Colorado Gold, was the dramatic first book in the new Treasure Quest historical fiction series. Bestselling author Marian Wells introduced her readers to Amy Randolph and Daniel Gerrett whose marriage started on shaky ground, nearly fell apart, and finally was restored. Out of the Crucible continues their story. As much as Amy loves Daniel, being the wife of an elder in the Methodist Episcopal Church during the circuit-riding days is difficult. Saying goodbye every Monday without knowing if he'll be back for the weekend, wondering if he's met up with Indians traveling between mining communities, the dreaded monotony and ruggedness of the mining town--her promise of love had been easy, but her commitment was being tested. Then into their lives breaks the Civil War. Since late 1861 the Texas Rangers have been pushing their way into New Mexico Territory, and a voluntary army from Colorado Territory is formed to defend their gold and their land. This finally takes place at the battle of Glorieta Pass with Amy and Daniel in the middle of it all! A powerful story of promises and commitments that challenge readers with a strong spiritual message.
