89 Words1 Page
According to Biblical Proverbs 22:1, “A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.” (Book of Proverbs, 22:1). The pursuit of a distinguished reputation is not reprehensible in itself, however, excessive ego in oneself makes the pursuit dangerous for oneself and the community. In Arthur Miller’s play, The Crucible the actions made to preserve one’s reputation are put into moral question. Arthur Miller uses Abigail and Dansforth to disclose the egotistical need for the preservation of reputation in these characters.
