    “What is a crucible?” Why does the author choose to name this play The Crucible? However, two definitions of the word can apply to the play The Crucible, which could mean “a severe test” or could also mean a piece of laboratory equipment used to heat chemical compounds to very high temperatures or to melt metal.

    Millers Presentation of Parris is interesting; he uses Parris as a symbol for the theme of power and conflict within the parameters of religion. As an audience, we can see that Miller makes an example of Parris: he is used to demonstrate some of the major flaws of society across the ages. Miller’s presentation of Parris towards other characters is very derogatory as we can infer from his remark to Tituba that he would ‘whip her’. This could be an example of how she was treated by people when…

    The resolution according to Miller is provided in the play not “to write an unmeant word for the sake of the form”, but to make the form capable of saying what must be said (Miller, 31). Miller also sees the ending as a creation of a higher degree of consciousness (Miller, 21). The ending of the play slightly follows the Greek tragic format which believes in a world controlled by the fates directed by gods. Miller disagrees with this idea as he believes that man’s fate mainly falls in his own hands…
