Books by Dean Koontz, Stephen King, and other best-selling authors. One best-selling author that I have the utmost respect for is Mary Higgins Clark.

How does Arthur Miller create dramatic tension in Act 3, Scene 3 of ‘The Crucible’? Arthur Miller’s play ‘The Crucible’, written 1953, displays paranoia, mass- hysteria, and theocracy in its true colours. Revenge driven accusations sweep the town, causing many unjust deaths. The word crucible provokes an image of a big boiling pot. This is extremely realistic, as in Salem the population are left to boil. The suffering and turmoil divides the good, honest people of the town from the deceitful wr

Immanuel Kant
Immanuel Kant The ethics of Immanuel Kant are based on the belief that ethics stem from rules and reason much like the law of gravity; they are universal and always apply regardless of circumstances. He believed that the capacity to reason was unique to man and when exercised this was what it meant to be a moral human being. His deontological approach rejects Utilitarianism due to its consequentialist nature not being universal and therefore not based on reason. Kant presents a more rigid way of

The Crucible: the Essay Arthur Miller’s The Crucible shows the reader a certain side of humanity, the one that reacts when put in impossible situations. This situation is the Salem Witch Trials. Hysteria and a general feeling of empowerment gave these trials a mass standing in the town of Salem. The few that chose to speak out against the proceedings were unsuccessful in their endeavors, then were eventually brought down or conformed to mass opinion. This is evident in characters like Mary Warr

The Crucible
The Crucible
The Crucible The Crucible by Arthur Miller is a play about the Salem witch trials that occurred in the late 1600’s. The scare about the witches was a result of a group of girls dancing in the forest. Dancing was not tolerated by the Puritans in that time. News about the dancing got out, and rumors were started about witchcraft. This is what triggered the Salem witch trials, but what kept it going was greed, jealousy, and the desire for revenge. Once the trials were started, accused people were p

The McCarthy hearings pitted artists and performers against each other as they were called to testify about their own loyalty and what they knew about the loyalty of others.

Causes of the French Revolution On July 14, 1789, several starving working people of Paris and sixty soldiers seized control of the Bastille, forever changing the course of French history. The seizing of the Bastille wasn’t caused by one event, but several underlying causes such as the Old Regime, the raising of taxes, the American revolution, and the idea and beliefs of the philosophes. The immediate causes of the revolution were the rising price of bread and the locking of the third estate out

Miller’s McCarthynistic Idea Period 4 November 3, 1997 Mr. Ruppel “The play was inspired by Miller’s belief that the hysteria surrounding the witchcraft trials paralleled the contemporary political climate of McCarthysim.” McCarthysim is Senator Joseph McCarthy’s obsessive quest to uncover a communist infiltration of American institutions. Communism is a theory of social change advocating a classless society. In a classless society there is chaos. In the following we will discuss how Miller’s po

Power Abuse
Power Abuse
Power Abuse Excessive possession of power in individuals often creates corruption that is harmful to their peers in addition to themselves. In 1887, Lord Acton said, Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely. This statement holds true for many occurrences in history. For example, Adolph Hitler abused his power and tried to change the world. He sought more and more power, ultimately winding up a corrupt and very unpopular man. Arthur Miller\'s The Crucible explores how power
