How does Arthur Miller create dramatic tension in Act 3, Scene 3 of 'The Crucible'? Arthur Miller's play 'The Crucible', written 1953, displays paranoia, mass- hysteria, and theocracy in its true colours. Revenge driven accusations sweep the town, causing many unjust deaths.

Write About The Part Abigail Williams Plays In The Crucible I believe that Abigail Williams was a symptom of what was wrong with Salem society. I think that it was a mixture of her background, her personality and living in an oppressive society that made her cause the witch hunts. The Puritan society of Salem was oppressive.
