The Crucible (1952) is regarded as one of the best dramaturgic feats in the contemporary American theatre as it tackles the human oppression of the modern man in relation to such case in the seventies of the seventeenth century. Arthur Miller (1915-2005) wrote his The Crucible after paying more investigations regarding the social reputation of an individual during the 1950s of the twentieth century. He was highly obsessed with the colossal closeness in the nature of social humiliation between the two centuries focusing attention meanwhile in the socio-political repression of a man in the modern society. Moreover, Miller seems patently influence by the intended destruction of the political and social position of a man in the post-war American community. So, the play majorly is concentrated on enhancing the current generation so as to rid of such oppression and defaming in order to live peacefully. This article aims to spot light on the manipulated socio-political repression circumstances in the American community. Furthermore, it takes place to revolve around the necessity of sublimity of the human reputation and not to believe on the accusations based on witchcraft, sorcery and political-opposition considerations. Thus, The Crucible is the dramatization of testing and scrutinizing the inner values, ethicalities, trends, attitudes and yet the real conscience of an individual in the post-war society.
