Vengeance

Arthur Millers The Crucible is a classic novel about the 1692 Salem witch trials.In that year nineteen people and two dogs were convicted and killed for acts of witchcraft. The reasons behind the accusations resulted in many disagreements that happened over the years. After the accusations began, grudges began to surface in the community. Small insignificant actions were made out to be witchcraft, and the devil was responsible for bad business deals. One of the main characters John Proctor stated it best when he said, "Vengeance is walking Salem."(Miller 73)
