Elizabeth Proctor By Brandon Evans Elizabeth Proctor was a respectable wife to her husband, John Proctor, but her life went downhill after she was suspected of being a witch. The song “Save Me”, by Shinedown, could be connected to Elizabeth’s character because of the hardships she had to go through. She was locked in prison, she could not handle forgiveness from John, and she wanted to be saved, but she too wanted to keep her husband alive. Elizabeth was imprisoned when she was accused of being a witch and the conditions were not good. She could be related with, “I live in a hallway with no doors and no rooms”, because she could not escape the jail.
“Let you look for the goodness in me, and judge me not.” John Proctor and his wife Elizabeth Proctor both endure a crucible or severe moral test. Elizabeth is put to the test various times during the play including when she was asked if her husband is a adulterer. John Proctor makes the descion to admit he had relations with Abigail williams.
In The Crucible by Arthur Miller, placed in Massachusetts, explores the history of the devastating Salem Witch Trials. In the trials, 19 people were hanged, and it had to come to an end as people stopped confessing to witchcraft. The town realized that the girls were lying and the people were innocent. There are plenty of relationships affected in the play as people change perspectives and attitudes towards each other. In this story, Proctor and Elizabeth's relationship changes from a dreadful state to a peaceful solution.
Moreover, another important crucible someone had in the story developed from the very beginning all the way to the end. In the beginning of the story before even the trials really began we learned about the adultery of John Proctor. While in the house talking to Elizabeth, they have a conversation about what John has done and how she cannot forgive him, he must forgive himself, “You will not judge me more, Elizabeth” (54-55). He says she forgets and forgives nothing but he will not forgiving himself.
The Crucible: Character Analysis The book/play The Crucible by Arthur Miller tells the story of the people involved in the Salem Witch Trials in Salem, Massachusetts starting in 1692. Elizabeth and John Proctor lived on a farm with their three sons. John Proctor had an affair with Abigail Williams that affected a lot of the events that happened during the story. Abigail had become obsessed with John Proctor and even tried to get rid of Elizabeth just to be with him.
In loving memory of Abigail we really miss her because she was a charitable person but Abigail lied and made false accusations, hurt a lot of people around her like Elizabeth Proctor and John Proctor whose marriage was harm because she didn’t care about their marriage, Abigail lied and said that Elizabeth Proctor had something to do with witchcraft and in court Abigail leads the girls in court in their witchcraft accusations, Abigail accuses Elizabeth Proctor of creating a poppet the she was sticking it with a pin to harm her and when Mary Warren appears to renounce with her involvement in the court proceedings, Abigail is given the chance to admit that she was pretending. Instead, she pretends that Mary has sent her spirit out to try to
In the final analysis, three important characters from The Crucible John Proctor, Rev. Hale, and Elizabeth Proctor share a bond together when it comes down to change. Initially, John was exceptionally blameworthy over the way that he deceived Elizabeth by cheating on her. As everything progress toward the end of the play, Elizabeth forgave John for his transgression triggering John to excuse himself for the wrongdoing as well. Afterward, John understood that despite the fact that he will die, he will always be a superior individual. While on the other hand on the first sight of Hale he seemed very cocky when to trying to take out all people using witchcraft for good but instantly leaves the court when innocent people are killed because he couldn't
A story of significant events involving witchcraft, and murderous double-crossing town members is a play written by Arthur Miller: The Crucible. In The Crucible many people accuse other members of the town. These actions performed by the town members show their real personality and real incentive. Even though most people accused others, the people who didn’t share their accusations were still responsible for the outcome of the events. Sometimes an act of negative intimation to a loved one to do something, might backfire later.
The Crucible is a play written in 1953 by Arthur Miller. When accused of witchcraft by his former servant, Mary Warren, John Proctor finds himself stuck between confessing to save his life or staying true to himself/his principles and face being hanged. He is torn between doing what others think is best and what is morally right, even if it means sacrificing his life. It is acceptable to sacrifice your life for your principles because it allows you to maintain your sense of self as well as preserve the respect others have for you. When you sacrifice your life for your principles, you maintain your sense of self.
The Crucible is not a play that wants for unique characters that call for an ability to bring nuance to the role. Many characters fit the ideas we may have of what a person living in the late 1600s would be like but they are given additional qualities that make some of their actions understandable to the modern reader. I doubt that I would be able to capture the manipulative energy Abigail gives off though I might fit her profile based solely on some of my appearance. And while I would certainly be able to make a wonderful John Proctor, it is more likely that I would be cast instead as the less adulterous of the Proctors.
