Miller did an amazing job! He made me feel so helpless and scared for the people that this actually happened to. I think it is so important for us to feel what people really have gone and continue to go though, if even on a small scale. Hysteria is a terrible and powerful tool. Can you imagine that these girls were only young women? So many have done the same thing, only for slightly different reasons.

I cried when John Proctor screamed, "Because it is my name! Because I cannot have another in my life! Because I lie and sign myself to lies! Because I am not worth the dust on the feet of them who hang! How may I live without my name? I have given you my soul; leave me my name.
