He was an honest, good-hearted man who wished for nothing more than to live a good life with his wife and children. He did all he could to stop the spread of vengeance and corrupting in Salem though he came too late. Even with him committing adultery, he continued through the end to be a hero with the best intentions in mind for justice and peace in his
Throughout his characterisation, John Proctor is seen as a man of integrity, despite his immoral actions. He willingly tries to fix and rebuild his relationship with Elizabeth, whilst at the same time showcasing his reluctance to keep away from Abigail by not resuming to meet with her. Throughout his immoral actions, he performs conscious choices that highlight the great ideal of his character. Not taking away from that, he proves to himself even more to be moral by the way he acts in situation. Essentially, Abigail accuses Elizabeth of witchcraft, and John immediately runs to his wife's’ aid.
This quotation shows that John admits to his affair, which will ruin his reputation, but will hopefully save Elizabeth and his friends wives. Not only is John honest with the court, but he is also honest with Elizabeth, before the trials. In the article “Why Be Honest”, the author talks about why it is important to be honest with your spouse even they don’t want to hear it. Lickerman states, “Or is better to make a habit of being tactfully honest so she can trust you…” (Lickerman par. 7).
It is not my soul, John, it is yours. Only be sure of this, for I know it now: Whatever you will do, it is a good man does it” (Miller, 136-137). Elizabeth has most faith in John’s capabilities of being a good man and so gains his love even more by forgiving him when she describes him nothing but good, and also tries persuading him to forgive himself. This is a form of reality anxiety, Elizabeth forgives John and tries her best helping him forgive himself, since she sees herself as a cold wife and fears she could be the reason why John is getting executed. Overall, Abigail and Elizabeth have different ways of achieving love; however, both are able to achieve John’s love through their own ways.
Parenting can be one of the most challenging jobs a person undertakes. In To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, there are numerous characters that appear as parental figures. Atticus Finch, a widower, a father of two, and a lawyer is one of the many characters. He treats everyone with respect, whether it is the townspeople, his housekeeper, his children, or anyone around him. Atticus also stays true to his morals and stands up for what he believes in no matter what happens.
Proctor also admits to his act of adultery in court to end the trials and save his wife. This willingness to confess this action shows the loyalty that he has for his wife. It proves that Proctor will do anything to keep and protect his wife, even if he has to tarnish his
23). In conclusion Atticus’s decision to defend Tom, although dangerous, was wise on his part as described in the last paragraph. His family was put in danger, but ultimately was the right thing to do. Not only did he keep his conscience intact but he also possibly saved other black men and women from hate deaths and hate crimes. The sacrifices that he made was the right thing to do, and nothing can change
In life, there are many people who influence others. Some are good influences and some are bad influences. The one person who influenced Christopher's life the most would have to be his father, Ed Boone a character from the novel the curious incident of the dog in the night-time written by Mark Haddon. In the book Ed Boone makes lots of mistakes that are completely understandable given his situation. He is still a fine father whose has unconditional love and commitment for Christopher which allows him to grow in spite of the numerous challenges he faces.
John ends up doing the right thing and not let Abigail manipulate him. The relationship between John and Elizabeth is truly how love should be portrayed. John's love for Elizabeth is also one of his inner struggles. John throughout the play is conflicted because he knows what he did was wrong but he thinks Elizabeth should not still be upset “ Spare me! You forget nothin’ and forgive nothin’.” (Miller 940).
Wiglaf, as I just mentioned, is a good man. One of simple proud qualities. He is a man of his word and the only mighty warrior who deserved a Leader such as Beowulf. He knew what kinship meant and was not about to let his comrades forget their words of bravery when the time came for them to assist Beowulf in battle. In lines (711-713) you see what it meant to be a good man,” And only one of them/ Remained, stood there, miserable, remembering/ As a good man must, what Kinship should mean” To give you an overall thought of Wiglaf is to sum up his good human qualities.
The one character that stood out of all the character for being a noble man was the narrator, Paul. He is the most noble for being loyal to all his companions, for being sensitive to others and for being selfless in difficult times. One of the reasons why Paul is considered the noblest character is because of his loyalty towards people. First, in the beginning of the novel, one of Paul’s friend Kemmerich is badly injured and had to have his leg amputated, sadly things are getting any better for Kemmerich and in the course of time he eventually dies. Paul describes himself as “wretched with helplessness” (Remarque 30), and even though he was like that, he stayed with his friend until his very last seconds.
Even though his mission is to save one man and risk many of his men, he presents a full effort to complete this mission no matter how senseless he believed it was. He proves his intelligence and strength. He remains positive and calm no matter the circumstance. His flaw is that he is too good-hearted, which in the end, gets him killed. Both Maximus Meridius and Captain John H. Miller have the qualities of a tragic hero, which are: a high position, a fatal flaw, and a downfall caused by their flaw.
People today do not take the risk like he did and it fascinates me to think that even in death he was honored. His nephew did everything he asked and more. Beowulf is not like other heroes. He is not in it for others to look at him and say he is a hero mostly he just wanted to help. He was loved, committed, and fearless.
He had a priceless dedication to his son and loved the child until the tragic end, protecting Fleance not with weapons, but with his life. If it weren’t for the tyrants who ended his life, Banquo would “have died hereafter” (5:5:19) and lived a peaceful, rich life with his son. The “dauntless temper of his mind” (3:1:58) ended up saving his child, therefore proving that he was not a “poor player” (5:5:26). As a respected father, he “hath a wisdom that doth guide his valour to act in safety” (3:1:59). Our friend was a virtuous role model for his son and although he had human weaknesses, he remained in control and resisted the temptations of the witches’ prophecies.
