At this time there was no official LaTeX template available from the university. There is now a basic template supplied by the editor in Graduate studies located on the ETD formatting website, available here as an Overleaf template However, some may prefer to use this template for there needs.
Arthur Miller’s The Crucible was written encompassing the events and people of the Salem Witch trials. In many analyses written by literary critics, his writing has been compared to facts from documents and letters of the trials, and have been accused by several critics as historically inaccurate, despite Miller’s disclaimer in the beginning of the play stating that his piece was slightly altered in order to better interpret his point. This writing and literary criticism of The Crucible analyses the Abigail Williams from Miller’s text to the real Abigail Williams from 1692. The piece includes the changes Miller made and shows of what effect the alteration had on the telling of the trials.
