Literary Techniques used in The Crucible
Literary Techniques used in The Crucible by Arthur MillerThe Crucible by Arthur Miller is often studied due to its expert use of technique. This article briefly explores some of the techniques used in this play.Posted by Rachel Ives  Last updated: Dec 2,gefälschte moncler jacken, 2013The Crucible by Arthur Miller (1953, Viking Press), is a re telling of the Salem witch trials of 1692. It is written as an allegory in four acts, serving as an extended metaphor which Miller used to make a statement about McCarthyism.Background setting of The CrucibleSalem is a small, theocratic society. The townsfolk pride themselves on their Christian values and live simple lives. Although, not everyone in this puritan town is a good as they want each other to believe. John Proctor and Abigail Williams had recently had an affair. Reverend Parris is more concerned with his personal wealth and reputation, rather than other people. Disagreements over the ownership of land are creating tension and petty grievances are playing on people's minds.The Beginning   The Girls Go Dancing in the WoodsDespite this, all is quiet in the town until one night a group of teenage girls are caught dancing in the woods with a black slave, Tituba. One of the girls is struck down with a mysterious illness and claims of witchcraft soon emerge.Abigail Williams, the main antagonist in this play,moncler haube, claims they were forced to dance for the devil and she starts naming women in the town as witches.The Rising Action   The Salem Witch HuntAbigail's accusations soon spiral out of control, resulting in mass hysteria. The witch hunt quickly gains momentum and several women are tried and hanged at the gallows.The Climax   John Proctor is Accused of WitchcraftSoon Abigail accuses Elizabeth,moncler in frankfurt, John Proctor's wife, of witchcraft. Abigail wants nothing more than to rid Proctor of his wife, so she can take her place.The Proctors try to get their servant, Mary Warren, to confess that there were never any witches but upon entering the court Mary sides with Abigail. Proctor tells the court of his affair with Abigail, risking being tried for the crime of lechery,moncler weste billig, but when Elizabeth is questioned she denies this in order to save Proctor from trouble. This action, although meant with good intention, signs both of their death warrants.The Falling Action   The GallowsAbigail flees Salem and John Proctor, now also accused of witchcraft. Proctor goes to the gallows,moncler kinderkleidung, upholding his name and innocence.Dramatic Irony in The CrucibleThis refers to the technique where the audience knows more about what is happening in the play,, than what the characters do. In this case, the audience knows what really happened in the woods and that the claims of witchcraft are false. The audience also knows that Proctor has admitted to adultery so when Elizabeth tries to cover for him,, this creates dramatic tension and excitement in the audience.Imagery in The CrucibleMiller uses imagery to create a sensory experience for the reader. Some examples of this are:"sweated like a stallion" (p.29). Abigail describes the way in which Proctor enjoyed their affair. While also a simile,moncler wien, this gives the reader or audience an image which is animalistic and vivid."you know in all of your black hearts that this be fraud. we will burn together" (p.105). Here Proctor creates an image of fire and darkness. This reflects his view that the trials are deceitful and hateful."he wakes me every night, his eyes were like coals" (p.104). Mary Warren says this to condemn Proctor, and save herself from Abigail's wrath. Poppet's are seen as voodoo dolls, used to hurt others and therefore the tool of a witch. Abigail plays upon this,original moncler, faking an injury in order to condemn Elizabeth.Metaphor in The CrucibleMiller relies heavily on metaphor in dialogue to create dramatic tension and imagery in the play. Some examples of this are:"the magistrate sits in your heart that judges you" (p.55). Elizabeth says this to Proctor to suggest that she does not judge him for his actions, but he is judging himself."Theology, sir,outlet moncler jacken, is a fortress; no crack in a fortress may be accounted small!" (p.65). Reverend Hale uses this metaphor when talking to Proctor, to emphasise that it is important to be an active and committed member of the Christian religion."we burn a hot fire here, it melts down all concealment" (p.81). Danforth uses this metaphor (which also explains the title of the play, as a crucible is a melting pot), to suggest that the court of Salem will uncover the truth. Further reading is encouraged.
