    weve just started doing it for drama, and its already boring me, is there any1 else that has had any bad experiences with this play or any others for that matter???

    the one good thing about this play is that winona ryder played the female lead in the film, what a goddess!!!

    Dedicated a whole coursework to it. Yes the film is tedious and the novel is somewhat boring. I prefer 'Lord Of The Flies' to that sort of stuff.

    If you think The Crucible is a novel you didn't learn much.

    I think I did it for GCSE English lit, so you are probably right, we didn't do it to death. I only find it interesting really because of Miller's political stance, and the stuff that was going on in the US at the time.

    I think GCSE English does a really good job of removing every scrap of creativeness and love for language that you might otherwise have had! I found that I actually liked all of the books but hated reading them simply because it meant we had to write another horrible essay.

    OMG! Blasphemy!!!! The Crucible was BRILLIANT! Arthur Miller...he was like married to Marilyn Monroe! It's all about witch hunts and murder and coming in the dead of night with a pointy reckoning, it's about communism and McCarthism etc etc
    It is fantastic...*cries* how dare you be so mean! (I also got an A* for my coursework on it)
