Wesley first demonstrates this because he is a sheriff. He put aside his own dreams to be a lawyer and became the sheriff in the town both for his father and to protect others. His self-sacrificing of his dreams is a selfless act that people can appreciate and look up to him as someone whom they want to be able to be like. In addition, Wesley also put his family aside in order to do the right thing, no matter how much it hurt him to do so: “’My brother – your uncle – has run afoul of the law. I had to arrest him.
Since John wanted to devote his life to God, his decision to tear up his confession allowed him to keep his pride and remain honorable by the end of the play. In the play The Crucible by Arthur Miller the written trials were corrupting the town, and it was all because of the lies told by the younger girls in town. Since John Proctor is bound to God, his choice to sacrifice his life makes his death honorable. John Proctor is trying to be a better man for his wife Elizabeth because of what he did to her. Since John is trying to be a better man for his wife, he tried to prove it by attempting to accuse Abigail of lying.
She was afraid of something really terrible happening to her that will cause her not to see Peak again. So she sacrificed her job to take care of her son, even though it was a risk because they needed the money. Also, in the book Zopa gets arrested by Captain Shek because the Captain assumed that Sun-jo was on the mountain illegally(which he was). All of the porters and Sherpas risked their jobs and tried to get Zopa out of the situation. Over a walkie, Josh states, “As soon as the porters and Sherpas herd about Zopa’s arrest, they all gathered around Shek’s headquarters to hold a silent vigil.
Proctor’s case is ultimately not believed by the court because Elizabeth did not tell the truth, therefore he will pay the consequences of his actions according to the court. The morning before his conviction, he speaks to his wife Abigail and confesses by saying “I cannot mount gibbet like a saint, it is fraud, My Honesty is broke, Elizabeth, I am no good man, nothing's spoiled by giving them this lie that were not rotten long before.” (Miller 126). By this quotation in the text the reader is able to tell that Proctor, who knows is going to die, expresses his disappointment in himself and asks Elizabeth for forgiveness for his crime of adultery. This in turn shows the sporadic change of proctors situation.

Mrs. Kane’s hair is also tightly pushed back with clips and hair ties, which symbolizes that she does not want to look like a mess, rather presentable to show that she’s not upset about Charles leaving but rather happy because he is going to live a good life.
Insanity can be defined as the defect of a reason as a result of mental illness, not knowing what he or she is doing and all three writers present different contributing components that lead to insanity. The persona in ‘Daddy’ compares herself to a Jew “I think I may well be a Jew” it could be argued that the comparison to a Jew reflects the persona being made to feel like a lesser race by her father. The metaphor is repeated throughout the poem showing that she believes this to be true. The persona uses the metaphor to emphasise the mental abuse she suffered from her father and presents him as the cause of her insanity. In comparison with this, in ‘The Wasp Factory’, Frank’s suffering and descent into isolation are caused by his father.
