About the Title:
The title The Crucible refers to a vat capable of withstanding high temperatures and intended for melting metal into liquid. The 1692 Salem witch trials created a personal and public "crucible" for the citizens of Salem Village, Massachusetts, whose characters were tested under enormous social pressure to determine the guilt or innocence of those accused of practicing witchcraft.
