Abstract: Arthur Miller, one of the most admirable of Americans to come out of the “American century”, died in 2005, aged 89. In the UK, at least, his work has undergone a revival and the themes of his great plays remain resonant, even though, in many respects, they are historically specific. The relationship between literature and history – whether conceived as a symbolist or allegorical relationship - together with an instance of the past invading the present, are brought out in a compelling episode in Miller’s autobiography, Timebends, and offer a way of talking about those inter-connections in The Crucible.
