This play is from the a prominent figure in American theatre and cinema for over 61 years, writing a wide variety of dramas, including celebrated plays such as The Crucible, All My Sons, and Death of a Salesman, which are studied and performed worldwide "THE ARTHUR MILLER".
Because of the effects of the Great Depression on his family,due to his fathers bussiness loss he worked in a number of menial jobs to pay for his tuition. He continued working in Ann Arbor to supplement his income.Finally he secured a place at the University of Michigan,he married his college sweetheart, Mary Slattery, On August 5, 1940.This play gives u an experience by which u tend read once again this..
This play was adapted forfilm twice, by Jean-Paul Sartre as the 1957 film Les Sorcières de Salem and by Miller himself as the 1996 film The Crucible, the latter with a cast including Paul Scofield, Daniel Day-Lewis and Winona Ryder. Miller's adaptation earned him an Academy Award nomination for Best Screenplay based on Previously Produced Material, his only nomination. The play was also adapted by composer Robert Ward into an opera, The Crucible, which was first performed in 1961 and received the Pulitzer Prize.
