Storyboard Text

  • Parallel
  • In both scenarios, people were afraid to speak out against the people who were in charge and held a position of power. Both in Salem and in Hollywood, people were accused without substantial evidence for speaking out and having an opinion.
  • Plot
  • The Crucible
  • In this scene, Proctor and Mary try to go to the court and prove that Abigail is lying to the court and falsely accusing these women because of her own agenda. Abigail responds by calling out that she sees a bird and the bird contains Mary's spirit. The court believes Abigail and Mary is still seen as a witch (pg 117-120).
  • Mary! Stop! The bird, it's Mary! Mary stop!
  • Stop lying! There's no witches!
  • McCarthyism
  • During the 1950's, people were afraid to speak out against the HUAC and other people and organizations of power because they were afraid of being accused of Communism and being blacklisted. In AOW #5, Miller uses the example of liberals being against the violations of civil rights but didn't dare to protest too much with the fear of being blacklisted (Arthur "Why I Wrote the Crucible").
  • Parallel
  • Characters
  • When comparing characters of the Crucible and important people of the 1950's era of McCarthyism, the two people that stand out the most are John Proctor and Arthur Miller. Both of these people put themselves out there and are able to stand up for their beliefs, even when taken to court.
  • The Crucible
  • MY NAME!! I won't let you ruin my name! isn't my word and your witness enough?
  • McCarthyism
  • I refuse to cooperate!! Just because I wrote a play that can be connected back to this doesn't mean I'm a Communist.
  • In this scene, John has agreed to confess to witchcraft so he could be with Elizabeth and the baby but then changes his mind as he realizes that confessing and lying isn't worth it because he doesn't want to ruin his reputation an legacy (pg 141-144).
  • After Miller wrote the Crucible, he was called in before HUAC and was charged with contempt of the court for not cooperating ("Arthur Miller Biography").
