5 stars... still :D
R- 2? nothing graphic
From the introduction-- "In 1692 nineteen men and women and two dogs were convicted and hanged for witchcraft..."
Huh? Two dogs? Seriously??
How did those trials go? "Confess, Fluffy!"
Sorry, feeling a little punchy.
Seriously, though, how does one convict a dog of witchcraft? Do you think they really hung the dogs? That's just weird. (I mean, if it were black cats that would make a little more sense...)
Confession: I absolutely beyond a shadow of a doubt believe that, had I been born in Salem at the appropriate time, I'd have totally been burned/hanged/whatever as a witch.
Anyway, the play. I love this play. I loved it when I read it in high school and I love it now.
I also seriously ticks me off. People are idiots. I mean, really, who thought this process through? No one, I tell you. Confess or die. Whether you're guilty or not. *shudder*
I also love the movie. You know, the one with what's-her-name playing Abigail. You know who I mean. She's in Little Women too. Winona Ryder. That's her name. (Yes, I actually had to IMDB that. So sad.) In fact, I think I need to check that movie out from the library and watch it again.
So, anyway, if you haven't read it, go do it. It's not long. It's fabulous though.
