Therefore, How john Proctor was a dynamic character in The Crucible and changed throughout the play. How john Proctor was a dynamic character in The Crucible and changed throughout the play because He confessed to adultry to try to save his wife. He wanted to prove that his wife never lies because the court thought she was lying about not being a witch. He wanted to prove that Abigail and the other girls were just lying to get attention. He wanted Elizabeths forgiveness so he tried to get it to confessing to people and explaining that he knew it was wrong.
Likewise, when Elizabeth is brought before Danforth to verify Proctor’s confession, she lies to protect her husband, whom she refers to as a “goodly man,” from suspicion (Miller, 113). The affair may have caused Elizabeth to doubt Proctor but both parties still care deeply for each other and try to protect each other from harm. Even in his last moments, Proctor’s last words- “Show honor now, show a stony heart and sink them with it!”- were directed toward Elizabeth and were full of love and care (Miller, 144). Proctor may have sinned but his regret over his affair with Abigail and the trouble he had brought upon his wife justifies his
An example of a fate is the prologue. The prologue is a fate because it talks about love and how Romeo and Juliet cannot control whom they marry. In act one when Montague says to Benvolio, “I would thou wert so happy by thy stay to hear true shrift.” Montague is making fate with Benvolio while saying this. Another fate is when Peter asked Romeo to read the list who was attending the party, Peter asked Romeo to read the list so he would see Rosaline’s name on the list; causing fate. Fate is just a way to be rude to someone with a reasoning behind it.
Antigone dearly beloved brothers Eteocles and Polyneices has joined their ancestors in the afterlife. Eteocles has been buried with honor There seems to be a problem with Polyneices who has not been buried. Antigone uncle Creon, don 't want to bury his own nephew. Antigone will always stand up for her family so she will go against her own uncle. Antigone is correct for bold rebellion to bury her brother because she loyal to her family and to the gods.
This is encapsulated in Hamlet exclaims, “frailty, thy name is woman!” about his mother’s hasty marriage to her deceased husband’s brother (Shakespeare 1.2.150). In this quote, Hamlet is dismissing all women as weak-willed like he believes Gertrude to be, which affects his interactions with Ophelia also. Hamlet is cruel to her because of this anger he has towards women in general, so when pretending to be mad, he goes “full force in the misogynist rage” when telling her he used to love her, but now she should go to a nunnery (Traub 192). Ophelia can be seen as weak in this scene because she protests little against Hamlet and only hopes that his insanity will end. These crude comments Hamlet says to Ophelia continue throughout the play until Ophelia is being buried when Hamlet asserts that he loved Ophelia.
This “future queen” sees the life she could have flash before her eyes and obviously Macbeth was hesitant because King Duncan was a honest man and Macbeth was a “servant” to him and he was family to Macbeth so he really didn’t want to go through with it. This fueled Lady Macbeth to conjure the death of King Duncan as well as covering it up. Lady Macbeth in Act 1, asked the spirits if they could “unsex” her so that she could ultimately be capable to go through with the killing. She felt like her husband (Macbeth) could not do her dirty work that she could wish that she could do herself. Lady Macbeth tried and attempted to fasten onto Macbeth’s inner feelings and attacked his level of masculinity.
In Shakespeare’s, “Romeo and Juliet” Friar Laurence is to blame for Romeo and Juliet’s deaths because he is devious and has a poor planning ability. Friar Laurence is to blame because of his devious and secretive nature. First, Friar Laurence agrees to perform a forbidden marriage without Romeo and Juliet’s family’s approval. Friar Laurence states, “In one respect, I’ll thy assistant to be; For this alliance may so happy prove to turn your household’s rancor to pure love” (Shakespeare 1031). This quote displays Friar Laurence’s devious nature because he had agreed to marry Romeo and Juliet, thinking that it would solve the rivalry between the two families even though it was against who he was, his morals, and his religion.
The Crucible In the story, “The Crucible” John Proctor’s most important concern is his wife, Elizabeth Proctor. John says he only wants to please Elizabeth and is doing all he can to make her happy. He is trying to make up for committing adultery with Abigail when Abigail was working for Elizabeth. In Act two John yells at his wife for suspecting that he did things with Abigail that day he was alone with her. Even though John did at one point have feelings for Abigail, throughout the rest of the story he only worries about what happens to his family and his wife.
Although John Proctor had an affair with Abigail, he still cares for Elizabeth deeply, As a result, Proctor choice to reveal the truth of his affair in order to save his marriage and his loyalty. In act I Proctor states ” I am only wondering how I may prove what she told me…. Elizabeth: If the girls a saint now, I think it is not easy to prove shes fraud, and the town went so silly, she told it to me in a room alone----- I have no proof for it ….. Elizabeth: You were alone with her…… Proctor: for a moment alone, aye. (page 51 ) . Proctor reveals his faults to his wife who he truly respects despite the fact that he had failed the woman he loves but, because of his affair he wants to be trusted, he realized that he is losing respect towards himself due to his
Without thinking, Romeo and Juliet became victims of their own love chargeable to Friar Lawrence, young age and fate. First, I believe Friar Laurence is to blame is of how unfaithful he was throughout the story. For example, “But come, young waverer, come, go with me. In one respect I'll thy assistant be, for this alliance may so happy prove to turn your households' rancor to pure love.” (2.3.96-99). This shows that Friar Laurence doesn't believe that Romeo's love for Juliet is authentic, but he agrees to marry them anyway.
In Scene 1 Act 2 she says “Let not thy mother lose her prayers, Hamlet; I pray thee stay with us; go not to Wittenberg" (1.2,18-19) she’s trying to protect Hamlet but not seeing that she’s actually hurting him. What made Hamlet mad was that she had married her uncle two months after his father’s death. Gertrude causes the main problem in Hamlet’s life and she does it by only thinking of herself. Hamlet is a young loyal man while the queen is nothing close to being loyal. Hamlet is loyal to his father and want revenges for his death by killing Claudius while Queen Gertrude is disloyal to Old Hamlet by marrying his
Furthermore, Claudius has no emotion towards his family, this is because his mind is only focused on obtaining power. This trait that Claudius displays shows by how he did not initially kill Hamlet. Before Claudius develops a plan to kill Hamlet, he tells Laertes, “O, for two special reasons, which may to you perhaps seem much unsinewed, but yet to me they’re strong. The Queen his mother lives almost by his looks and for myself… She is so conjunctive to my life and soul... The other motive why to a public count I might not go is the great love the general gender bear him” (IV.vii.11-20).
Lady Macbeth in the beginning of the play is manipulative, most of the times she manipulates her husband into doing either what she wants or what she thinks he should do. For example, when Macbeth does not want to kill Duncan anymore, Lady Macbeth convinces him by saying “from this time such I account thy love. Art thou afeared to be the same in thine own act and valor as thou art in desire? (I.vii line 38-41). Besides, the audience see Lady Macbeths is influencing her husband’s feelings by she is using her love as a weapon because she is saying do it or I will not love you.
In Act 1 Hamlet says "frailty, thy name is women" (I.ii.146). He is demonstrating his despise of his mother Gertrude 's actions by marrying Claudius shortly after the king or her husbands death. Throughout the play we see that Hamlet has disgust with his mother for her lack of character and strength. Shakespeare uses good imagery throughout the play while describing Hamlet and Gertrude’s odd relationship, which makes the interactions between them two much more interesting. Another relationship is the one between Ophelia and Hamlet.
