Review: The Crucible


The Crucible
The Crucible by Arthur Miller
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

My American Lit classes finished reading this today. I’ve read it many times and it just doesn’t get old. I’d give it five stars if the ending wasn’t so abrupt, but I suppose it’s hard to simulate a hanging on the stage, so Miller didn’t have much of a choice.

The kids (high school juniors) really get into it. Part of it is the story, but I know a lot of it has to do with getting to shout “whore” and “harlot” as we read it out loud. Hey, whatever gets them to like literature.

  1. Hmm it looks like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it
    up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the
    whole thing. Do you have any helpful hints for first-time blog writers?

    I’d certainly appreciate it.
