It is revealed that as soon as he had an affair with Abigail, he confessed to Elizabeth the next day because of the guilt he was carrying around. Also in Act 4, he was highly conflicted over whether or not to confess to working with the devil to escape death. In the end, he decided lying was a sin he did not want to commit and chose to die a honest man rather than survive as a deceptive man. So in the end it is clear to see that John Proctor still is a good man despite his short-lived affair with Abigail. He was an honest, good-hearted man who wished for nothing more than to live a good life with his wife and children.
He was not born to shame. Upon his brow shame is ashamed to sit, for ’tis a throne where honor may be crowned. Sole monarch of the universal earth” (3.2.92-95). Although Juliet too speaks badly of her Romeo, she realizes that no matter what, she needs to be there for him. By standing up for Romeo at such a difficult time, Juliet is putting her foot down, and not letting the Nurse talk rudely of husband.
In Arthur Miller's "The Crucible", John Proctor is our passive protagonist as he tries to save his wife and others that were accused of witchcraft.Unfortunately, his attempt was in vain and his evidence had backfired.His knowledge did not stop the witch trials because of his self-respect, and the children's high reputations, and Abigail's tactful nature. John Proctor valued his self-respect because it made him confident and helped him stand up for what he believed in. John proctor's name was synonymous with honor and integrity and was most respected in Salem.However, in the Salem witch trials, Proctor became what he hated most: a hypocrite.This causes him to lose his self-respect and confidence that led to his downspiral and made his evidence less believable. Even though Proctor was armed with evidence, the jury would not believe him as he was "either with the court or against it"(Miller, the crucible pg 213).However
Miller was able to relay these traits through John Procter who first and foremost is a representation of Millers personal ideology and embodiment of his aspirations. Through the use of exclamation, “In her life, sir she have never lied … my wife cannot lie!” we see that Proctors imperfections make him a relatable representation to his audience. His courage to not name his wife Elizabeth ironically demonstrates his goodness as by not naming names in essence equates to her not being guilty. This is representative of Millers political values of the law and 1950’s American Judicial system, as Miller too was fearful of being identified as convert Communist if he should protest strong enough. However in Ozymandias, Shelly’s ridicule of the controlling Egyptian ruler ‘Ramesses III’ with the use of enjambment “a shattered visage lies, whose frown and wrinkled lip and sneer of cold command” was an indirect criticism of the English government under King George III.
Malala employs pathos so that the reader could feel where she is coming from. As a result, she wants the reader to know that education for girls is a very imperative thing. By using vigorous pathos, she gets the reader to fathom that a girl’s education is important and meaningful to them. In the bibliography “I Am Malala” by Malala Yousafzai, the author mentions “Then, when she said I would have to leave my school books behind, I nearly cried, too. I loved school, and all I cared about were my books”.
He decided what he felt was right and refused to stray from it. His decision, along with those of others who did the same, eventually brought the chaos and hysteria to an end. John Proctor held firmly to what he believed was right, even in the face of great pressure. The pressure of the Salem witch trials elicited various responses from three of the characters in The Crucible; Parris fell victim to fear, Hale took on an entirely different worldview, and Proctor established himself as one who would stand for the truth. The ways these men reacted show us that pressure does not affect everyone in the same way.
By looking at The Crucible by Arthur Miller one can see that the characterization of John Proctor reveals the theme of reputation and integrity, which is important because refusing to tell lies to protect his reputation and stop delirium from spreading throughout Salem.John Proctor states that the woman of Salem who have been locked up for witchcraft:”Excellency, does it not strike upon you that so many of these women have lived so long with such upright reputation”(3.1.305-309). Proctor represents reputation because he would rather die than have his reputation downed to a victimizer. Protecting his reputation motivates John Proctor to deny that witchcraft exists in the village. All he hears is crying out of screams and wailing which is a cause of the Devil 's work: “What 's she doing? Girl what ails you?
Hie you to church: I must another way” (II.v.70). This evidence shows how nurse helped Romeo and Juliet to get married in secret without telling anyone. Another example is that how Friar Lawrence helped Juliet to fake her death. To support this argument Friar Lawrence states “ …. Thou hast the strength of will to slay thyself, Then is it likely thou wilt undertake A thing like death to chide away this shame, That cop’st with death himself to scape from it; And if thou darest, I’ll give the remedy” (IV.i.70-75).
After this, Joan cut her hair and began to occasionally (when it was necessary to ensure her safety) pose as a man. In disguise, Joan went to Charles VII and asked to help fight for his throne. Several accounts claim that she told Charles that she knew of a “prayer he had made the previous November 1st during which he had asked God to aid him in his cause if he was the rightful heir to the throne, and to punish himself alone rather than his people if his sins were responsible for their suffering (Williamson, Allen. Joan of Arc Archive. 2002-2014)”.

I will be playing Nora, the protagonist of Ibsen's problem play A Doll's House takes the bold decision to abandon her husband and children at the end of the play not primarily to be free from marital life marked by domination of her husband, but to educate herself so that she can stand on her own thereby enabling herself to establish her personal identity and to develop a sense of an individual.
