In many ways, John Proctor is seen as a ‘tragic hero’, he is portrayed as a man with definite great values which he has flawed. Proctor isn’t initially seen as truly moral character, his adultery and redundancy to completely dismiss his religious beliefs and rites prove otherwise. His beliefs are dismissed due to the immortality Abigail displays in her characterisation that effectively rubs off on him. John chooses to be immoral, but he himself knows the difference between right and wrong, and his conscious still plays a big role in the decisions he makes, unlike with Abigail. Throughout his characterisation, John Proctor is seen as a man of integrity, despite his immoral actions.
John Proctor The Crucible, a play by Arthur Miller, is about real life events during the Salem Witchcraft Trials in Salem, Massachusetts in 1692. Though most of the events in the play are real, some things are fictional. For example, John Proctor was a real person, but his character was exaggerated to make the play more interesting. In the play John Proctor and Abigail Williams had an affair, sometime after the affair ended Abigail began accusing people of witchcraft. John Proctor’s wife is eventually accused by Abigail, because Abigail was jealous of her relationship with John.
Although, Giles Corey was accused he refused to admit nor deny being a part of witchcraft resulting in a harsh punishment. An example from the play “He would not answer aye or nay to his indictment; for if he denied the charge they’d hang him surely, and auction out his property. So he stand mute, and died Christian under the law. And so his sons will have his farm.” (135) this shows Giles denied the choices to keep his land so his sons would not lose their home. Finally, through John Proctor tries to tell the truth about Abigale and the girls, Elizabeth Proctor supporting her husband choice even though they have children to raise, and Giles Corey rather be pressed than lie about being a part of witchcraft it is clear the fundamental subject is courage.

The Crucible is written by Arthur Miller, and it is a religious play of revenge, hatred, jealousy and witchcraft. This play takes place in a town called Salem, where people are very sensitive to sin and applaud death as an accurate punishment based on the amount of sins one person contains. By applying the psychological lens to the two characters Abigail and Elizabeth, differences of personality take more value than similarities. Causing opposite effects to the people around them, where one harms and other helps. Both are able to achieve the love of John Proctor through their own ways.

In the eyes of Danforth people are not innocent until proven guilty; they are innocent until accused guilty. In the eyes of Danforth facts and details mean nothing to him. He comes to conclusions that any rational man cannot come to. He has doomed people to death who were innocent just because they did not want to confess to something that they did not do. This is because Danforth’s rule throughout these trials were that if someone was accused of witchcraft, even if they were innocent they had to confess or they were sentenced to death.

I mentioned my wife's name once and I’ll burn in hell long enough for that. I stand mute,” (Miller 90). Giles is deliberately defying the court and therefore is arrested for his actions. This is an intense scene in the storyline because his defiance protects the life of an innocent man. Giles represents goodness through his silence, which the reader hopes can lead to a
