Arthur Miller’s The Crucible is set in 17th Century Salem, Massachusetts. Miller himself makes ‘A Note of the Historical Accuracy of This Play’ (224) and emphasizes the artistic licence that has been taken in merging many character qualities into one, however Miller links it to reality adding verisimilitude to the play stating “the fate of each character is exactly that of his historical model” (224) and concedes that all these roles actually did occur in history.
