The Crucible was mostly a social explanation on the era of McCarthyism that had swept through the American culture during the 1950s. Senator Joe McCarthy had accused countless people of being Communists and spreading the ideals of Communism. Almost all of the accused people had their careers were terminated by McCarthy’s wild incriminations. Miller had made a viable comparison of this era to the era of paranoia during the Salem Witch Trials of 1692. Thus, The Crucible had been born.
