John Procter:

Coward: He never actually confesses to his wife that he has had an affair, she finds out herself. He only confesses that the he knew that the girls were lying when his own interests were at stake for example when they took his wife away to try her for witchcraft. He did not stand up to save his friends, he only stood up for his wife when he needed to, and he could have saved many lives if he had done it before that, like when Goody Osbourne was being hanged.

Short tempered: When Mary warren was speaking that she was an official of the court, and the said “ill official you (takes down the whip hanging there)” For not staying home in the first place. Or when he didn’t stand to be judged by Elizabeth anymore

Blunt: When he thinks you’re wrong, he’ll tell you to your face, even in front of other people, for example He was mentioning in front of everyone in Act one “I have trouble enough without I come five mile to hear him preach only hellfire and bloody damnation take it heart Parris There are many others who stay away from church these days because you hardly ever mention god any more.”

Unstable: John is dismayed with himself. Elizabeth hints at his problem when she says, “The magistrate sits in your heart that judges you.” And the judgment is harsh: John Proctor is a fraud. Before Abigail came along and ruined his assertiveness, he was always sure of himself. He still is, but what he is sure of now is that nothing he can ever do will be pure and honest again.

Prideful: When he rejected Abigail and went back to his wife. As the saying goes, “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned,” and Abigail…

The Crucible by Arthur Miller, some of the characters showed courage when the live’s of their loved ones were at risk. One of the main character’s in the play was John Proctor. He showed courage when his wife, Elizabeth was accused of being a witch. When John found out that it was Abigail Williams, John’s mistress, who accused Elizabeth he said, “Fear nothing. I’ll find Ezekial Cheever. I’ll tell him that it was all sport.”(p.61, Proctor). Being it was Abigail who had accused Elizabeth made it difficult for John. John and Elizabeth had a very heated argument about Abigail. She believed that Abigail was out to kill her. She said to John, “Spoke or silent, a promise is surely made. And she may dote on it now – I am sure she does – and thinks to kill me, then to take my place.”(p.61, Elizabeth). John doesn’t seem to think that Abigail would do such a terrible thing to Elizabeth. Elizabeth says, “It is her dearest hope, John, I know it. There be a thousand names; why does she call mine? There be a certain danger in calling such a name – I am no Goody Good that leeps in ditches, nor Osburn, drunk and half-witted. She’d dare not call out such a farmer’s wife but there be monstrous profit in it. She thinks to take my place, John.”(p.61, Elizabeth) Elizabeth also said, “You’ll tear it free – when you come to know that I will be your only wife, or no wife at all! She has an arrow in you yet, John Proctor, and you know it well!”(p.62, Elizabeth) Another issue that made it difficult for John to prove Elizabeth was innocent was that John did not attend churchhere there there there…

Such as Mary Warren who whole personality turns upside down, John Proctor who contemplates between the importance of his family and his own name and Reverend Hale who battles with himself wether to carry out his job requirements or do what he knows is right.

The trials in The Crucible take place against the surroundings of a deeply religious and gullible society, and most of the characters in the play seem to believe that picking out witches from their community is God’s work. However, there are plenty of feuds and rivalries in the small town that have nothing to do with religion, and many Salem residents take advantage of the trials to express long-held grudges and revenge on their enemies. Abigail Williams finds revenge on Elizabeth Proctor; Thomas Putnam gets a hold of revenge with both the Nurse’s as well as George Jacobs and the Corey’s. The Salem Witch Trials were with out a doubt, the perfect way for revenge. Read more…

There is no doubt that John Proctor was in a moral dilemma. Either he lies and says that he was in on all that witchcraft or he tells the truth. Which they may think is a lie, and he will still hang. He just isn’t able to think right. He asks Elizabeth “Would you give them such a lie?” She didn’t answer though. Read more…
