Hey I am doing my English Language Year 11 Controlled Assessment on the Crucible. I need to 'explore how communites are presented in the text you have studied' I have studied the crucible, so the community is Salem. Does anyone have any ideas for this essay? Thank you so much x

Hi!

So, you're lookeing at how comunities are presented. You're main community, as you say, is Salem. How is the village of Salem presented in the play? Are they a 'typical' community (wanting to help each other, trusting, friendly, you get the idea). Or do they stray from our expectations of a community? (hint: Yes! )

So now you have two arguments:
1) Salem is a typical community. What evidence do you have of this? Do any of the characters show kindness and loyalty towards each other? Do they stick to the religious ideals they claim to?

2) Salem is not a typical community. In what ways does Miller show Salem as being an atypical community? The characters break their Puritan values lots of times and yet condemn others for this - surely this isn't the way a community should work?

You could also add in a third argument...

3) The Proctors as a family may also be considered a community. As they a typical family? On the surface they look to the audience as though their marriage is slowly disintegrating, but is there true love behind this? What causes the issues in their relationship, and how (if they are) are they resolved?


I hope this makes sense. I studied The Crucible two years ago, so my knowledge had faded a little. Sorry for using so many questions, they're just a way of making you think about the different issues rather than an attempt to confuse you haha. Feel free to ask questions.
