Synopsis

Notes on Miller's Crucible by Denis Calandra, James L. Roberts

Boost your insight (and impress your teachers as a result!) by using this study guide to gain understanding about the play's central story, set during the Salem witch hunts in the 1600s. You'll also discover parallels to contemporary witch hunts -- such as the McCarthy investigations of the 1950s -- and the paranoia and fear that accompany them. And that's not all! CliffsNotes on The Crucible provides critical commentaries, a list of characters, and background information about Arthur Miller and his prolific writing career.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.
