Goodness and nobility is determined by an individual’s morality and their willingness to follow a virtuous path in their life. It is also determined by the ability of an individual to acknowledge their shortcomings and become more self-aware. In The Crucible by Arthur Miller, John Proctor is a good man as he showcases righteous morals and principles. This is shown, as he ends his affair with Abigail, protects his wife and his friends’ wives, and dies to preserve his integrity and honour. First, John Proctor shows his goodness, by refusing the physical advances of Abigail, who wishes to continue their love affair.
In Shakespeare’s sonnet 152, he is writing about a man who is seemingly not in a committed relationship with anyone, but is having sexual relationships with a married woman. He is both frustrated with the position he is in, but wants to stay is this adulterous affair because he is a selfish man. The first line of the poem he states, “In loving thee thou know’st I am forsworn” (1). Then goes on to say, “I am perjured most / For all my vows are oaths but to misuse thee” (6-7). These statements both are saying that Shakespeare knows that he is breaking promises to possibly himself, his religion and others, by loving a married woman.
Shakespeare further elaborates their dismissive speech over Bianca to arouse Othello’s suspicion into conviction that Desdemona is having a love affair. This conviction leads Othello into anguish and frustration. If Cassio has paid attention to Bianca’s traits other than sexuality, there would have been no failure of men. Thus, men’s view of women solely through a sexual lens has incurred a
Alfieri feels a impression of convalescence as he tells the story, as he “Lost his strength somewhere” This suggests that the play will have a horrific, heartbreaking, hell taking ending to it, and nothing will disallow it from taking place. Not with standing this, Eddie begins as a normal, nice longshoreman who cares minimal for anything outside his work and family. We straight away see his good side as he offers his accommodation to those who require it. As it is he’s already looking after his niece, but he still offers to commit more good gestures and bring in two illegal immigrants by the names of Marco and Rudolpho in to his home. He always puts his family first.
In the Crucible, Arthur Miller uses the characterization of Elizabeth Proctor to portray that once a person’s trust is broken, it can never be gained back fully. For example, when John Proctor came home to his wife, Elizabeth, he “gets up, goes to her, kisses her. She receives it.” (48) Miller uses this as indirect characterization, as Elizabeth only receives his kiss instead of kissing her husband back. She knows that he had an affair with Abigail, so Elizabeth still does not trust him completely. Elizabeth’s lack of trust in Proctor creates tension in the marriage and they no longer engage in conversation, they just argue with each other.
In the text, Act One Scene One, Romeo says to Benvolio that Rosaline is living in chaste, meaning that Rosaline is basically saying she 's not having sex anytime soon.

Hamlet and Ophelia “This was sometime a paradox, but now the time gives it proof. I did love you once… I loved you not” (3.1.114,119). Confusion clouds the audience’s judgement reading this quote from Hamlet. His paradox insinuates that he is insane and truly did not love her. Contrary to belief though, this quote was a way to set his “mousetrap” and force her to be in the background of his grand scheme.
