THE CRUCIBLE

Next month, when millions of voters cast their ballots based on their fear of the opposing candidate, they'll be continuing a long American tradition. Though Edward R. Murrow once asserted that "we are not descended from fearful men," fear has been an indelible part of the American experience from the days when the fear of religious persecution drove European exiles here. In the 1950s, the fear-mongering and injustices of McCarthyism reminded playwright Arthur Miller of another American moment. The Crucible, his classic historical drama, carefully probes the Salem Witch Trials of the late 1600s as a cautionary metaphor for his—and our—times. —Byron Woods
