The Crucible is a playwright written by the Amercian Arthur Miller in 1953. It is a dramatized story of the Salem witch trials. Miller wrote the play as an allegory for McCarthyism, when the United States government persecuted people accused of being communists, on the heels of World War II, which ended in 1945. At this time the United States was becoming increasingly concerned about the rising power of the Soviet Union. They were worried about the Soviet Union's communist ways would infiltrate the United States which led to a significant amount of paranoia within the American government.
Miller wrote the Crucible because he was concerned about McCarthyism, which was a judicial doctrine that tried to oppose the spreading of Communist ideas in American people.
Miller shows this political climate in the United States through the Crucible and also through his play witch trials of Salem Massachusetts. During this play, McCarthyism is showed as a whole and it also presents Miller's search to eradicate Communism without using constitutional rights.
After World War II, Communism was considered an American way of life and many politicians created some tactics against the government or anyone who had liberal ideas.
Icarus and Daedalus are both figures from Greek mythology. Daedalus was a remarkable Athenian craftsman who created the Labyrinth for King Minos of Crete to imprison the Minotaur. However, Daedalus ends up imprisoned in the Labyrinth with his son, Icarus. A part of their escape plan were the wings Daedalus made from feathers and wax. He hid these wings from the king and managed to escape. These events suggest that it's alright to lie to your enemies. That is the only way you could possibly escape from them.
However, the ending of the myth isn't a fortunate one. Icarus flew too close to the sun despite his father's warnings, causing the wax in his wings to melt off, and fell into the sea, where he drowned.
