(Conroy)88 The Prince of tides is told by Henry Wingo’s son Pat Conroy so when he says father he means Henry Wingo. This quote shows that Father Kraus is very caring of Henry Wingo even though with all the care puts him in even more danger by tending to him while he’s in pain.
In The Crucible, John Proctor’s tragic flaw-his considerable amount of dignity-drove him to his ruinous death, establishing him as the tragic hero. Even though John brought his destined defeat upon himself, he is still considered the tragic hero. In the beginning of The Crucible, John Proctor was thought able enough to stop the allegations of innocent people because he was outspoken against the accepted beliefs throughout Salem.
