The Crucible - Arthur Miller, Christopher Bigsby
Miller makes it very clear what hap­pens when peo­ple make each other crazy and the (too big a) role the church and reli­gion play in it. His writ­ing leaves no mis­take, the play is well writ­ten, but some­times I was lost. I think that was, because of the sub­ject that doesn’t really appeal to me, the num­ber of char­ac­ters, too much at some points and the fact that it is the story of a lit­tle Amer­i­can town in the 17th cen­tury. What I did like is the fact that the sit­u­a­tion described can be par­al­leled with all the other inci­dents when com­mu­nal hys­te­ria hits the his­tory of human kind. Every­one can think of numer­ous times, although we try to for­get them.
