Line(s) of the Day #TheCrucible

IMG_0517 (1)

It is rare for people to be asked the question which puts them squarely in front of themselves.

As said by John Proctor in the masterpiece play that is The Crucible by Arthur Miller. Published in 1953, but set in 1692, the story is based on the notorious Salem witch trials which tore a small Massachusetts town against itself. Miller admitted the play was an allegory for McCarthism, when hundreds of Americans were aggressively accused of being communists or communist sympathisers.

  1. One of my favorite plays. Yay for Arthur Miller. Many times either I or someone else rationalizes something and I always hear the line echo in my head by Goody Proctor, “I think that be the Devil’s argument.”
