You will not be able to put it down. S.A Bodeen was really good at creating tension, conflict, and foreshadowing. The events that create tension, conflict, and foreshadowing are when Mason goes into his mom's filing cabinet, when mason is with the girl, and when he returns the girl back to TroDyn. One way the author used tension in the book was when Mason went digging in his mother's belongings, which led to increasing the complications between them. Mason's teacher Mr. Hogan gave him an application toTroDyn, but Mason’s mom wouldn’t let him go and won’t tell him why.
Burdon discusses the unusual salvation from demons in Mark 5:1-20. He chooses to analyses the exorcism that Jesus performs on a man, simply known as Legion. As soon as Legion becomes pure again, Burdon implies that the new land is also cleansed of impurity. Jesus performs the exorcism, not only for the single man possessed but the thousands of demons, but also for the community. Burdon explains, “the local people who should be the beneficiaries of the exorcism fail to acclaim int but rather ask the exorcist to leave.” The community, now pure, asks Jesus to leave, he is treated as though he is also possessed by demons, not accepted into the community he has saved from impurity.
John says to Elizabeth, “ I have been thinking I would confess to them, Elizabeth” (Miller 135). This quotes shows that although John does not want to be hung, but he has a hard time evening thinking about confessing. The more John thinks about it he signs his name and admits to witchcraft, but after realizing what he has done he rips the paper up and goes to the wagon to get hung. This all shows how the fear of death almost over powered him and he almost lost his reputation that he was very proud of and wanted to keep. In the The Crucible, John Proctor’s motivation shifts from fear to redemption, which causes him to be accused of witchcraft.
“The Minister's Black Veil” In “The Minister's Black Veil,” Nathaniel Hawthorne illustrates a man named Hooper, who was too simple-minded to believe that he could not escape his hidden sin. Mr.Hooper spent a majority of his older years trying to prove a point that was only proven at the end of the story. Throughout the story, he was treated negatively, as if he was trying to reveal that everyone hid behind a mask. Hawthorne symbolizes a mask in both “The MInister’s Black Veil” and “The Scarlet Letter,” in “The Scarlet Letter" Dimmesdale hides behind his secret sin that only he and Hester knew about. In “The Minister's Black Veil”, Hawthorne uses alienation to illustrate ambiguity and a great sin.
Miller develops the idea that the revelation of the truth of John Proctor's affair could end all of the accusations of witchcraft in Salem and bring the town back to order thus making it important. However, John delays revealing this truth for fear of losing his good reputation in the town.
Individuals vs. Society The Salem Witch Trials, of the strangest accounts of mass hangings in history, were the fault of a few young women. In Arthur Miller’s The Crucible, John Proctor is forced to make a decision as to whether or not to give up his good name to save this small town. People have to choose between self-interest and that which would benefit the society in which they live. Often, people face some great cause prior to choosing to help the greater society over their own selfish wants. John deals with Abigail and a dozen or so other tormented girls, as does the whole town.

Hale also wishes for Proctor’s confession so he does not have to feel responsible if Proctor were to be hanged for his witchcraft accusations. The confession of Proctor would convince others in the town to confess to their incriminations and not have to be hanged. Reverend Parris, Deputy Governor Danforth, and Reverend Hale’s desire for Proctor’s confession demonstrates their need to keep their reputation and the well-being of the citizens of Salem. A motive for Proctor’s confession is for Reverend Parris and Danforth’s reputations to be upheld and avoid a rebellion of the townspeople against the court and leaders. Parris fears that if Proctor is to be hanged, then the town will attempt to overthrow the court for it’s dishonesty and rebel against him.
Proctor motivates to learn how the truth can still not matter if it is not what the court wants to hear causing people to be killed and put in jail.

John is talking to Mary Warren when she is talking to him about the Devil being in Salem and they must find where he is:"I
The devil has succeeded in bringing in evil (to the Church) under the guise of good and the blind are beginning to lead others, as the Lord tells us in His Gospel."
