At this instance, he is indirectly fueling Abigail and the girls to accuse whomever they want to. Judge Danforth’s irrationality bubbles out in this situation, as according to his judiciary system any person accused of witchcraft have no chance of being a defendant due to the absence of a witness. This shows incompetence and irrationality of legal judgments on the part of an experienced Judge such as Danforth. Lastly, Danforth’s poor judgment is also revealed in the instance of the play wherein John proctor sacrifices his name and tell the truth that he and Abigail had committed the crime of Lechery. In order to confirm this Judge Danforth calls Elizabeth Proctor to testify in court, in which she lies, as a result Danforth says “She spoke nothing of lechery, and this man has lied” (Miller 114).
He’s a mental suffering individual who is egotistical. But is also a member of the the puritans religion, which is a community center among their beliefs.Which may change some things but not dramatically. Proctor is a egotistical type of person because he will do anything to protect his concern with abigail. At this point of time Proctor tries to get rid of Abigail’s mind of their matter that they touched. But then when William tries to bring back the truth, proctor hit him with the line “Aye, but we did not.” He will do anything to keep his problems undercover.
Creon becomes angrier, and, thinking Ismene more likely than not helped her, summons the young lady. Ismene tries to admit erroneously to the wrongdoing, wishing to pass on nearby her sister, yet Antigone will have none of it. Creon arranges that the two ladies be briefly bolted up. Haemon, Creon 's child and Antigone 's fiancé, enters to vow steadfastness to his father. He at first appears to obey Creon, yet when Haemon tenderly tries to influence his father to extra Antigone, the examination disintegrates and the two men are soon severely offending each other.
Oedipus was literally refusing to believe a word Creon said, because in Oedipus’s mind, Creon was King Laius’s killer. Creon repeatedly denied the accusations Oedipus bellowed at him, and yet Oedipus paid no attention to that, notwithstanding the fact that he had virtually no evidence to prove his theories. Comparably, when Oedipus implored Tiresias to tell him who Laius’s killer was, despite Tiresias’s promising, Oedipus did not actually want to know. Since Oedipus insisted, Tiresias told him, but as he had predicted, Oedipus did not believe him and grew hostile. Tiresias became annoyed at Oedipus’s foul behavior, quickly asking if Oedipus had “miss[ed any of his] words?
His insightful suggestion is mocked and he is considered crazy because it is easier for the boys to comprehend a tangible monster lingering over them that could be killed rather than to accept “mankind’s essential illness” (Golding 89) which cannot be changed nor destroyed. Simon is isolated from the others because of his atypical insight and he simply “cannot be understood, for he speaks the language of truth to the blind” (Talon). When Simon is killed, it symbolizes the death of goodness in man, much like Christ: both are the epitome of good being destroyed as the consequence of man’s sins. People believe in Satan because they cannot comprehend the severity of man’s evil nature and would rather blame
Proctor finds it hard to forgive himself. He says since he has already ruined the Proctor name and saying how his whole life is basically blacken with sins. However, he goes to say it doesn't hurt to have one more sin. John tries to justify to himself by thinking if he goes to hang from something as innocent that all it would be is another lie. Elizabeth tries to explain to him that she isn't the one to judge him because she feels just as guilty as John does.
This clouds his judgement to analyze evidence presented by the suspects of witchcraft. Danforth says,"We burn a hot fire here, it melts down all concealment", this quote shows that the the court only hears the truth and supposedly ignores the lies" (83). This is an inaccurate and an ironic statement. Even though, Danforth says that the court ignores all the lies to get to the truth, it is evident that this happens through the accusation of innocent girls. Danforth's power blinds him to the truth, and prevents him from seeing the effect that his actions have on the lives of innocent people Arthur Miller argues that being fearful or damaging one's reputation is what caused people to act irrationally and against their morals, coming off as selfish and arrogant, and leading to the Salem Witch Hysteria.
He takes away her pride of rejecting people and forces her to choose her family being hurt of facing her demons and going with him. But he himself is almost a reflection of her sharing such similar traits only he comes out as the winner which is the ironic part. A big clue to Arnold representing what Connie doesn’t like is when he says “None of them would have done any of this for you” praying on her feeling of being unappreciated. Arnold is not only a demon in a physical from but also Connie’s eternal demon as
Macbeth claims “[He]Put rancors in the vessel of [his own] peace/Only for [Banquo and his son], and mine eternal jewel/Given to the common enemy of man,/To make them kings, the seed of Banquo kings!”(3.1.67-70). He seems to be in disbelief and is trying to convince himself that Banquo’s son would not become King. Until he realizes that his fate is not to stay King, but Banquo’s is. Macbeth appears to be both fair and foul as he unnecessarily claims that he is selling his soul to the devil to “make them Kings”. As paranoid as he is, Macbeth is characterized by metaphors as afraid of losing power to anybody.
By thinking of her while enduring the torture, he is trying to convince himself it was worth it, even though we all know she never cared for him like he cared for her. Love distorted the man's judgement, making him think crossing enemy lines was tolerable during “war time”. Love will never be strong enough to ease the real world conflicts. It is imperative that judgement is not driven by
