This paper presents the play, "The Crucible", written by Arthur Miller at the height of the McCarthy period. The paper contends that Miller wrote the play about the Salem Witch Trials in the 17th Century as a parable for what was going on around him. The paper illustrates that, whereas the unfortunate "witches" in "The Crucible" were actually executed, the "witches" of the McCarthy era were executed socially, economically, and ideologically.
