Scroll through these pictures! Can you tell where these were taken? Some are from movies and plays of The Crucible. Others are photographs of actual historic places and documents associated with the time period. Look at these BEFORE and AFTER you read the text; you may be surprised at how much better you understand them the second time.
When you watch the following video, keep in mind that the events depicted in The Crucible are made up by Arthur Miller. The only truth of the play is the very basic story, EXCLUDING Abigail and John Proctor's relationship. The commentator in this video appreciates the rogue attitude of Abigail, even though she is lying and manipulating her way through life. I would also appreciate her ability to stand up for herself IF she were working for the good of the people instead of her own selfish and lustful desires.
